Thrift Store Score…

For you! These are pieces I saw today while out on my travels today (forgive me for not pricing everything):


Rattan Sofa @ Value Village on Freedom Drive

I could see this painted and the cushions recovered with one of Trina Turk’s outdoor fabrics. How fun would that be?


Wicker Dining Set, $175 @ Habitat for Humanity ReStore on Wilkinson Blvd.

This set needs some small repairs but would be lovely with the metal, chair backs, and table base painted a crisp black and the seats cover with a nubby wool bouclé. Texture, texture, texture all the way!


Faux Bamboo Dining Set, $150 @ Habitat for Humanity ReStore on Wilkinson Blvd.

I think this table would be good in a dark gray, the chairs painted a creamy white and the seats covered with navy linen. It would also look great in a green with a pale blue and dark green print on the seats.

The possibilities are pretty endless with all three pieces! Happy hunting, everyone!

Thrift Store Score!

On Saturday me and my mom went by Value Village to pick up some wing back chairs we’d seen on Memorial Day. They were only $25 each!

They are really sturdy, solidly built, and really comfortable. The fabric is actually not that bad looking; it has a muted range of warm pastel tones in a flamestitch pattern. However, there is some shredded fabric on the back of both chairs so they’re  definitely going to end up becoming projects.

I’d like to find a more affordable version of Clarence House’s Dahlia linen (as featured in Lindsay Reid’s cottage in the June 2011 House Beautiful). If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
