My Five Favorites ~ Thrifted Finds


Happy March friends!
This month's My Five Favorites' topic is near and dear to my heart!
 I couldn't love thrifting more, the thrill of the hunt and savvy negotiation make it my
game of choice. :) This month we're all sharing our favorite treasures, be it from a thrift
 store, garage sale or Craigslist. I'm excited to take a peek at my blogging pals' finds.

We've got the queen of thrifted finds as our guest this month, Gwen @ The Makerista.
Not only does she have a keen eye for a steal, but her unique style is unmatched! I love 
her fearless style, use of color, basically everything she does! #girlcrush
Gwen did a number on this hand-me-down iron patio set, she saw potential and took 
90's green metal with floral cushions from dated to straight up timeless! 

  
On to my favorites... 

#1 ~ Bamboo Chairs

 It was a fun day when I found these bamboo chairs (seen in my Spring Home Tour) on
 Craigslist for a steal. I love the texture and pattern against my white vintage campaign
 chest, another Craigslist score.  


#2 ~ Vintage Nightstands

I'm a tad jealous these vintage Drexel nightstands were a find for my client's bedroom that
we did for the One Room Challenge a couple years ago. The generous size is fabulous and
they only needed a good cleaning to be top condition.   


#3 ~ Oversized Mirror

This ornate mirror (seen in Living Room Refresh) is my favorite statement piece. 
It's 6' by 7.5' and I'm so happy I didn't rule it out because of transporting it - minor detail.
 I always tell sellers I want to buy the item and figure out the logistics after I have it secured.
 We don't have a truck so we rented one from Home Depot.


#4 ~ Outdoor Furniture

 This bamboo set for our patio was a fun find, and I LOVED it for a season! Sadly,
it wasn't as functional as it was pretty. Mr. Simple didn't appreciate that the seats were only
about a foot high and didn't have a good arm rest for his beverage, haha details! I sold it and
 will show you the replacement once we have it out for the summer.
  

#5 ~ Tortoise Shell Tray Table

My living room coffee table (seen in Coffee Table Styling) absolutely still sparks joy :)
after finding it a few years ago. A $50 score on Craigslist, don't hate me!

I am so jealous of your finds. I never have any luck on Craigslist as far as furniture. Love your mirror and coffee and your client's chests. You're right about logistics. I only look locally due to the transportation problem. Time to remedy that and score some treasures.

You are the craigslist queen! I agree about the bamboo! Thrift stores are the best spot for reasonable bamboo anything. Those chairs are fabulous. I might want to steal those puppies! I LOVE this series!
