Thrifted GoodiesThursday, January 31, 2013
This afternoon, after I had my hair appointment, I decided to stop at one of our local thrift stores. I don't spend a lot of time thrift shopping, but once in a while it will cross my mind when I'm out and about in town. Lucky for me that I did stop, or I would have missed out on these awesome deals!
I scored these for $4 a piece!
This was $5!
I immediately spotted the bar stools because of their bright orange vinyl. I would really prefer to leave that as is, but you can see two indents on each seat from something probably being sat on them for too long. I don't think there is anything I'll be able to do to fix that, but I definitely want to stick with orange as my inspiration if I re-cover them. I also plan on painting all of the wooden parts black. As you may have guessed! I think it those colors will really pop together, and I'm really excited to start on them!
The mirror was actually just plain, without a frame. It was sitting next to a stack of old pictures, and there were a variety of colors and styles of frames to choose from! All I had to do was find one I liked, pop out the picture, and insert the mirror! Those are the kinds of projects I like best. I may paint it eventually, the frame isn't in the best condition, but I don't mind it the way it is now. I already have it up on my family room mantle! I don't think I could have asked for some better finds. They definitely made a good day even better.
Now that my list of projects is growing (as it usually is I guess) I suppose I will have to start on them soon! My goal is to start on at least one of them by no later than the beginning of next week. I'm so excited though, I may have to start this weekend! I can't wait to have some final products to share with you all.
