It's today! It's today! The Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm! I decided to post pictures of one of my very first thrifting buys. I used to avoid thrift stores at all costs. I paid full price for things. (Hangs head in shame) I did not like used things. (hangs head even lower) ThankGod i am a changed woman!
When hubby and I first redid our bedroom, I was looking for wall accents. I spotted this piece ona bottom shelf for $1.99. I kept picking it up, putting it back, over and over. Finally I decided that I could always redonate it if it didn't work.
It worked. The camera catches more goldish tones th at it really lets off, but I LOVE this piece. I get so many compliments on it. A friend who is an interior designer once said ' That piece could have gone Either way- really good, or REALLy bad. It is REALLY GOOD.' In the same week I also found the fabric for my curtains at $1.00 a yard, and fabric for my pillows at about $1.00 ayard as well, and several milk glass pieces to accents my valances.
Now- these are OLD pictures- we have white nighstands now, and this week my woodwork is getting a treatment of white paint, and new floors are going in. I am wanting to paint- lighter shade, but we shall see. So I shall show you the updated shots soon. However- for under $20.00 we made curtains, and put up a unique piece on the wall. I once saw the same piece in an antique store for $45.00!
