I have missed the past two weeks of Thrift Shop Thursday. I really thought that since the gym was near both of my favorite thrift shopping spots, it would be a breeze to pop in, see if I could score any new finds, then head home…quick and easy! Well, that is not happening. One, when I leave my class at the gym, I am either dying or just look like I am dying or two, I skip class all together then don’t go thrift shopping for fear someone from the gym will see me! Anyway, today I hit the gym and the shops and found something to share and yes, I did look like a mess!
I love the large candle holder that I found at the consignment shop. When I saw it, it reminded me of the one Joanna Gaines found at an auction on The Fixer Upper, one of my favorite shows on HGTV.
This is what it looked like when I found it today.
Since I was planning on using it in my office, I was back and forth between spraying it black or gold. The gold won out!
This is a nice and heavy piece. I am glad I chose the gold. It gives it a nice pop. Check out Charlie in the background…so bored with this whole blog thing!
Yep, I am still loving my office space!
The next piece I am sharing, I found several months ago. I get stuck on something and pick up several different variations. I am back to the candleholders.
This one is just a teeny tiny one that I picked up a Goodwill. I will just add it to the collection of gold candleholders in my office. Seriously, this is the last gold item and the very last candleholder that I will share…for now!
I just love this little candleholder though, I think it is so sweet!
Last up on this week’s Thrift Shop Thursday #19 is an old one that I have shared before but wanted to share again before I repaint it.
I found the base of this cloche at a flea market. It was originally stained wood that needed some love. I painted it with Annie Sloan Graphite Chalk Paint. I am thinking of repainting it and off white. I think the graphite is just too dark for my dining room. I still need to put some more thought into it but I love this piece. I picked up the glass top at Michaels and it fits within the base perfectly.
Well, that’s it for this week’s Thrift Shop Thursday #19. I hope you are finding some great thrifted finds too.
Until Next Time,
