Weekend Recap: Thrifting
Hope you all had an amazing weekend! Mine was full of adding many projects to my growing to-do list!
NY has been having quite the heat wave these last couple of days. Last week it was unbearable and on Friday I got to help move my sister into her new apt.
She is now living in the financial district in a pretty fancy building with a door man who’s services including planning your travel arrangements. Nice, right?
While the over all space is much nicer than her last place we still have to deal with small living quarters.
This is her living/dining room:
While the space is small it is larger than her last place and full of natural light, which is huge plus! You know what they say about location, location, location! Well I’m happy to report that right next door there is one of my favorite places:
Saturday morning we hit the ground running.
We picked up a piece for a client at a local thrift shop.
It quickly went from this:
I also picked something up for another client (aka my sissy) . An amazing set of faux bamboo furniture from Thomasville circa 1966! I’m so in love.
I also spent the weekend arguing with said sissy that you don’t need to have a set and not everything needs to be matchy/matchy. I only wanted to use the desk/chair and she wanted a set of furniture from a big box store. You’ll have to wait and see who won. :)
We also hit a garage sale of a client who very kindly gifted me with these chairs:
We also picked up this vintage fan at the garage sale:
We then headed home and Jon went right out pack to survey his land. He does this multiple times a day. I think it’s pretty funny. He always heads straight to our planter boxes and this time he returned with a surprise!
We also then headed out to another garage sale across the street and came home with this darling chair for $10!
Yes, it needs a little love and attention, but it was the perfect size and we both immediately thought it would work great in the nursery we don’t have for the baby that has yet to happen. Perhaps if we build it, the baby will come. :)
It was a jammed back day. It felt pretty much felt like both weekend days jammed into one!
On sad note I just found out that this man:
Tied the knot and it wasn’t with me! Oh so sad. I guess I’ll just have to be happy with only having one Jon in my life. :)
What were you guys up to?
