Hello and Happy New Year. Gosh, is it too late to even say that now. I have been slacking here on the posting but I do have a 1000 different projects running through my brain. Hopefully, some of the larger projects, we will get to later on in the year but for now I thought I would kick of the start of this year by sharing some of my latest Goodwill finds and how I use them in our home to create an eclectic look.
So you all know that I love bargain shopping and my all time favorite place is Goodwill. The fact that it is seconds away from the gym is just an added bonus for me. I kind of feel like if I go to the gym and pound it out, I should treat myself. Yes, I am pretty good at justifying things like that! You know another reason I like Goodwill…everyone there from the staff to other customers, are so friendly. Last week, another customer purchased my two items for me and told me to have a blessed day. You have to wait until next Christmas to see what these two items were…She wanted to now why I was buying said items and how I was going to use them and we got to talking and she ended up buying several of them as well and thanked me for the ideas!
O.k. on to my latest bargains. I found another Target Salvage item this week that goes with some of my other office accessories to complete the look.
How to Decorate with Goodwill finds to Create an Eclectic Look
I like mixing my wood pieces with all of my gold touches throughout the room. The wood is a bit rustic and the gold accents add a bit of glam which to me creates an eclectic look.
While I was at Goodwill, I also found another silver ice bucket. I am always on the look out for these. I like to use them as planters which I have shared before here. I like the look of silver ice buckets, they kind of remind me of the old trophies.
(notice the bright yellow crow bar on the window ledge…my middle son got this for me for Christmas, he knows me so well!!)
The final Goodwill treasure I am sharing is this sweet little ceramic candle holder. For mere pennies, I couldn’t leave it behind.
I love little treasure like this one. To me, it’s a one of a kind. Most likely, you will not find this exact piece at any other store. I believe by shopping at Goodwill and other consignment shops, thrift stores and local fairs help create an eclectic look in our home. Not only does it help create the look that I love but it is always great to create a look that I love on a budget!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope your new year is off to a great start.
Until Next Time,
