We are back this week with new/old Thrift Shop Finds. Yesterday when I showed my hubs the new find I picked up, he said he was worried that I was becoming a hoarder. At first I got a bit antsy, thinking he might be right but nah I still have a few more rooms to fill. O.k. in all seriousness, I try to make sure for each thing that comes in I donate more than twice that amount. When we had hardwood floors laid throughout the main level of the house in the fall, I did a full on deep clean. So, no hoarding going on here. Well, maybe the garage area a bit!
Anyway, onto Thrift Shop Thursday #9.
The first piece I am sharing today was orginally a vintage crate at some point.
We found it at an antique shop in Pennsylvania many years ago. This was when my husband and I were dating and I believed him when he said he enjoyed junking. Actually, he is a good sport and will go on the hunt with me occasionally.
The next treasure is a Goodwill Find.
I don’t know, there was just something about these candlesticks that I liked. I think it was the blonde wood with the bronze and gold finish on the metal base. Either way for a few bucks I thought why not? I seem to go in phases lately when thrift shopping. I find one thing and buy several in different variations. First I was into the white dishes, then the gold phase (which I am still kind of searching for and need to stop) and now I seem to be into the candlesticks. I am also into the smaller items or household accessories. I like to switch things up a bit at the house.
Next up is a set of concrete planters that I love.
I gave the planters a coat of white paint and that was it. Simple, easy five minute job!
Thrift Shop Thursday #9
Last up this week is surprise, surprise something gold.
Look, it’s gold and it’s a candle holder. Yep, I told you I shop in phases!
Well that’s it for this weeks Thrift Shop Thursday #9. I hope you enjoyed it!
