First let me show you what I managed to score this week!
I found this sweet thing at a garage sale on the street next to ours. I am a total sucker for caning and faux bamboo so have both and you've got me drooling.
I immediately sent a picture to my mom in case she wanted to use it somewhere in their new farmhouse. You can see a tour of their sweet little cottage here and some design plans for rooms in their new house here and here.
After some brainstorming, I decided to paint it and we would use it as a pop of color in their new master bathroom. They are planning on white tile, white walls and a warm wood-toned vanity so an antique green to offset the white and wood, will be dreamy.
I sanded it down, taped off the caning and removed the awesome hardware. I wanted it to look weathered and dry brushed so I chose 3 different greens to layer on top of one another. PS green is my favorite color to decorate with so I have about eleventy different green paint samples in the garage. 3 were easy to come by. I just can’t quit it.
With each layer of color, the details in the legs became more obvious and the hardware works so well with the caning. I just LOVE how it turned out.
Now for the goodies I found on the #thriftscorethursday feed on Instagram.
Look at this lamp from @modbeachhouse. She paid $5 and she's right when she says she would have paid that for the finial alone. Look at it! Awesome.
This mirror from @design_it_vintage. Can't wait to see the rest of the room. Also, I'm jealous because I could really use this mirror in the half bath I'm creating for my parents. Just saying..
Look at this amazing marble table from @dravenmade. $15 at auction! I'm thinking I need to find an auction ASAP. Glad to be following this great room makeover. Also, is it weird that i want to lay on this table? Yeah? I wouldn't...
And last but not least, look at these brass finds from @lidijajerant. I feel like Anthropologie might have donated to a thrift store. And all of it for $8. So good. Can't wait to see where all of this ends up.
