Weekend Recap: Thrifty Treasures
Wow I woke up this morning and felt like I had gotten zero sleep and wondering where my weekend went?
My weekend recap is pretty boring this week.
Here are some highlights:
-Found a bed (for the guest room…hint hint Marianne come to NY for market!) on craigslist so I went into Manhattan on Friday night to pick it up. Exciting I know…
- Got really mad at my weigh in at weight watchers on Saturday, because for some reason I gained a pound even though I was really good. Proceeded to eat brownies and cookies the rest of the day because I figured I might as well have fun if I’m going to gain a stupid pound!
-Since I was cranky went to my favorite thrift store and spent a couple of hours there finding treasures! I’m going to post pictures below.
- Went to a BBQ with my hubby. House we went to had 6 boys living in it, no furniture, garbage everywhere and things one should never speak of. Still had a good time, but felt like an old lady, because I was oldest one there!
- Sunday slept in and then made my sissy come over and help me finish painting the kitchen, had friends stop by to look at a house for sale across the street. I hope they place a bid on it! Then went to a friend/clients home to finalize paint colors for their living room/dining room and then home for my HBO line-up and totally forgot about Design Star…again.
-Enter Monday have loads of laundry (ha ha) to do, totally cranky, because I woke up tired, couldn’t find my camera stuff to take pictures of thrift store finds, big complications with my web designer and need to find someone new to do my wordpress blog or just stick blogger( ah too many decisions).
Highlight: Mom just called and my sister that lives in Manhattan came home last night and has today off so we are going to go do something FUN!
Well if you got through all that you are quite the loyal reader and I’m going to reward you pics of my finds from Saturday!
Found these adorable vintage canisters from Italy for $8 bucks. I know the manager and got them for FREE! I love them and even though they are meant for kitchen usage I’m going to use them in my office to hold supplies.
I never met an elephant I didn’t love and this one was to amazing to pass up. He is small so he can live on my desk and will fit right in with everything else I have planned for the office.
I have no idea what I’m going to do with this item below, but it was calling my name. I’m sure I’ll find a place for it.
I’ve been looking for artwork to use in my home. Already went to Mom and Dad’s and took stuff off the walls that I wanted. Thanks Mom! I saw this sketch and thought it was perfect. It was only $6 bucks! I just need a new frame and we are in business.
These two lovely ladies caught my attention right away. They were only $15 each and in great condition. I was already imagining them painted white, but once I got home I realized they would go perfectly in my office in that same shade of green.
Enter vintage fabric from same thrift store that I got months ago, but wasn’t sure what to do with.
I have just enough to do both chairs! Plus they will go nicely with the fabric I picked for the loveseat that is getting slipcovered.
Can’t wait to see it all finished. It should be there soon!
Since my home got a lot of love I figured I should get a couple of me items as well and came home with this:
Some of the items still had original price tags on them! Ah heaven. I also found a couple or 10 books that I wanted to read and at 50 cents each I couldn’t pass them up.
All in all it was a good weekend it just went by too fast.
Did anyone else have any luck thrifting this weekend?
