here’s my most recent before and after project. it started off with a coffee table in awful shape, but with nice lines. yikes! lots of work needed here. i got the foam from a garage sale and cut it to the size of the table. i pained the entire table a bright golden yellow to […]

i found this little owl bank a few weeks back. with a price tag of only a quarter, i snatched him right up and brought him home. he was quite dingy, but one cycle through the dishwasher and he was bright and shiny….just like new. one of the things i love the most, which i […]

thrifty finds thursday :: children’s folding chair

a found this little child’s folding chair a couple weeks ago at a garage sale. i have a thing for chairs. (much to my hubby’s dismay) i was instantly drawn to it, but with a price tag of $15 i quickly walked away. WAY above my garage sale price expectations. i went through the rest […]

this past weekend we got out for our first real thrifting trip of the spring. it seems that every church in town was holding a sale. these are usually our favorites because they typically have the oldest stuff, which is what i like. one of my favorite finds of the day was this amazing, amazing […]

we had a partially thrifted christmas again this year. unfortunately it wasn’t completely thrifted like last year (because i was just too darned busy to get to as many sales as i needed) but i did find a few good things over the summer. here’s one of my favorite puzzles i got for the baby. […]

thrifty finds thursday :: thrifted fabric

Thursday, December 9, 2010 10:54 2 Comments

at my most recent trip to the thrift store i found some amazing fabric remnants. i try to steer clear of the fabric section because i just have so much of it that hasn’t been used yet, but i couldn’t pass these up. the top floral is a polyester type fabric which i’m in love […]

i haven’t had the time to thrift much lately. (which i’m hoping to change soon!) because of this, i haven’t had much to share. i realized however that i never featured this little beauty. i found this over the summer at a yard sale and paid about $2 for it. it’s an original print signed […]
