Today I have the honor of having Michelle from Michelle's Pixie Dust guest posting on thrifting. Check out her blog! She's got great things to share!
This vase is so simple, but I love it! I can see this on an end table with some fresh flowers, making everything feel more like home. And can we say CHEAP? This little friend was only $1.00
The Beauty of Thrifting
One of my favorite things to do is shop the thrift stores for items to make my home more beautiful. Just like many of you, I live on a tight budget. I would love to go out and spend thousands of dollars on home décor, but this is not in the cards for me at this time.
Today I was the crazy person in Goodwill taking pictures. But I just had to show off some of these finds! Everything was individually priced under $10.00. If I had more space, all of these beauties would be in my home J
The first thing I spotted was this little kitchen storage box. Wouldn’t this be adorable for a rustic or shabby chic kitchen? Aside from storing onions and potatoes, this looks like great storage for dish towels and cloths.
I imagined this little shelf sitting on the corner of an end table or maybe an accent piece to a buffet. It could really go anywhere. I think it would also fit in with a rustic or shabby chic décor.
I fell in love with this little table because it is so different! I haven’t seen many others like it. This could be a plant stand or a little end table. I think it ads character to whatever room it would be in. It’s definitely not a “standard” piece.
I took a little stroll over to the record section and this cover caught my eye. Someday I would love to do a piece of art with old record covers. Wouldn’t this be cute in a small frame? The orange ads a pop of color.
I thought this hot pink fabric was amazing! How great would it be to make throw pillows with this? Or maybe even a camera strap cover?
And then lastly…these shoes! All I kept thinking in my head was “pumped up kicks…” when I saw these. I know these will not fit everyone’s style, but I can imagine them looking super cute with some leggings and a trendy sweater. What do you think?
Beautiful things don’t have to come at an expensive price! It’s all about forming a “look” for that room in your house and searching out pieces to match. I have an extreme love for looking at things the way they could be and not just the way they are. I hope you will try it with me!
