Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for THRIIIIIIIFT SCOORRRRRRREEEE THURRRRRSSSSDAAAAAAAY!!!
You can imagine me jumping up and down and fist-pumping now.
Really though, welcome to the fifth installment of Thrift Score Thursday, where The Gathered Home, Black and White Obsession, and I get together and choose our favorite thrifty finds from none other than YOU PEOPLE. Here are the rules, in case you're behind the times (and if you are, welcome! We have fun here):
1. Take a photo of something you see or purchased at a thrift store, consignment shop, garage sale, Craigslist, or anywhere else secondhand.
2. Post your photo on Instagram and/or Twitter, any day of the week!
3. On your photo post, include the hashtag #thriftscorethursday.
4. Each Thursday morning, your hosts The Gathered Home and Black and White Obsession and I will share our favorites of the week! This means you should be posting photos throughout the week, so we can gather up our favorites to share on Thursday.
Oh, and in case you hadn't heard, my Young House Love Forums post for Thrift Score Thursday was featured on the Forum Foursome last week! Check it.
If you click over to her website, you can see a totally amazing makeover of this great mid-century chair. I took a screenshot to give you a hint.
Now, when I first saw this chair I thought, man, I love that old fabric. (Not that it would match anything I own.) But when I read Dena's reasoning for reupholstering... let's just say there was more snort-laughing involved. Thanks for sharing this great #thriftscorethursday find, Dena!
Today's second find, well, I'm just gonna continue the super-awesome-fabric-mid-century-chair-with-crazy-awesome-shape theme. Ashley from Bigger Than the Three of Us scored this FREAKING AMAZING chair at Goodwill recently and shared it on her Instagram. She plans to reupholster it, but man, check out that silhouette. Drooling now.
GAHHH I wish I could find a chair like that! Look at them legs. I'm gonna go cry now.
Alright, I'm not gonna lie, I've been listening to "Everybody Dance Now" on repeat, the whole time I've been typing this post. So no crying will happen today. I will soldier on and lament my lack of chair-finding another time. For now, take a look at my #thriftscorethursday find this week, which is actually a garage sale find:
This adorable crewel art was courtesy of $3 and my friend Leia's moving sale! It is one of only two crewel finds I have so far, and let me tell you, that is a disappointing number. I love crewel art. I want more of it, so desperately. Or maybe I'll just learn how to make it myself, because apparently the thrifting gods don't believe I am worthy.
