I am going to be totally honest. This week was a tough one on the thrift shopping front. I found nothing. Zip. Zero! It was not a good week here. I even made a trip to my favorite spot on the Eastern Shore and it was CLOSED! So for this week I will do a round up of some of my favorite finds plus I will share a blogger that always finds some great thrift shop finds!
I found this lamp at a Thrift Shop for a few dollars. I knew if I switched out the lampshade and recovered it with a different material it would be perfect for an outdoor solar lamp. You can read about the transformation here. The base of this lamp is solid and was the perfect find for this project. This lamp has been outside since last summer and it has held up great!
This was another easy transformation. All I did was spray paint it black. This it what it looked like when I found it.
I know, she was ugly!! The chairs did not come with the table but they fit so well. You can read the original post here. I love seeing the look on my guys face when I pull in with a truck load of things like this! He is getting better and just going with it now!
This table is now sitting on my enclosed porch at the Island Home just waiting for us to return and enjoy the laid back life of Island living!
The table top was a roadside freebie and the base I found at a huge consignment shop on the Eastern Shore. You can read more about the table here.
Thrift Shop Thursday #2
My last Thrift Shop Find I am going to share today is my white dishes. I was able to decorate all my open shelving for a little over $20 dollars. That includes my shelves in the kitchen which I am sharing today and the shelves in my dining room that you can see here. Like I said, lately I have been crushing on white dishes and White Ironstone!
I am so passionate about Thrift Shopping and I like reading what other people find. So on that note, I wanted to share a blog that I have been following. She is a pro at finding great Thrift Shop Finds. Her name is Serena and her blog is called
