Thrifty Thursday

Don’t hate me because I’m a thrifting goddess. Seriously.

I usually don’t thrift on Thursdays because after Wednesdays, they are the worst thrifting day of the week.

But I was just in a thrifting kinda mood so I broke my rule cause I’m a rebel like that ;).

Just looky at all my fab finds today!

Pair of gor-geous chairs in brand new condition for $25 bucks each. I don’t have to paint the wood it’s whitewashed and perfect! I will have them reupholstered in a tan linen. Any of my local peeps know a good upholsterer?

Brand spanking new KitchenAid hand mixer in box. I have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer but I don’t own a hand mixer so I was happy over this little find. Can you see the original price on the box? 109.99. Yep. I paid $6.99. 🙂

Awesome chair. Sturdy as can be. $4.99. You’re not gonna believe this baby when I get done with it. That bugly (beyond ugly) mustard velvet is history!

1950 Oxford Dictionary (I LOVE old dictionaries) and a French dictionary.

Funky curio-ish thingy that I’m gonna transform to go on my daughter’s wall display that I’m working on.

Ornate frames for my daugher’s wall display. These are gonna be de-grannified and bright and fun!

Other assorted mirrors, frames and stuff that I’ve got big plans for.

Gotta go…I’ve got some major painting to do.

    • Mondays and Tuesdays are the best around here cause people usually bring things in over the weekend. 🙂
