hello there friends! recently i have been inspired to thrift for household items. i know i already showed you the things i bought this last weekend, but i thought i’d show you more things that i have thrifted over the past 2 years for our home. i love to decorate my home with thrited items because they add so much character and personality to an otherwise boring room. they are wonderful conversation pieces and i love how they tell a story. people me ask all the time where i found certain things in our house and when i tell them a thrift store, they never believe me. so, without further ado…
all of the decor on this shelf were thrifted. every. single. one. people. i absolutely LOVE the retro starburst bowl and i recently just found that cute little owl figurine. he makes me smile every time i look at him.
this entire shelf was thrifted as well. patrick and i like to collect old cameras and clock radios. these are a few of the ones we have. i LOVE the camera on the left that i found at goodwill. it has like a million lenses. not sure why you would ever use that many lenses, but it looks cool, that's for sure!
the white vases and the little vintage desk lamp are thrifted from this shelf below. patrick and i fell in love with that little lamp. its has so much personality and it actually works! he turns it on when he sits here to do homework and it just makes me happy seeing it shine. when i bought those white vases i bought them with the intention to pain them different colors. however, the plain white is starting to grow on me, so i think i am going to keep them white. what do you think?
this frame, little clock, and iPod station/radio were also thrifted. patrick gave me that super rad retro frame for my birthday a year and a half ago and i absolutely love it! i have actually never put a picture in it because i don't want to detract from the awesomeness of the frame!
i love the story about the iPod station/radio. patrick and i saw this at target after we first got married, but it was $100! being the bargain shoppers that we are, we didn't want to spend the money on it. well.....one day while i was looking at goodwill for christmas gifts for patrick I FOUND IT! at goodwill! for only $15!!!! and the best part is that it works! i could not wait for patrick to open it up on christmas morning. i almost just gave it to him early, but i'm glad i didn't because he was SO excited christmas morning when he saw what i had scored.
my jewelry organizer is made out of a cork board i found at goodwill and then snazzed it up a bit. i painted the frame and then put fabric on the cork part. it has been so perfect for my necklaces.
good luck thrifting items for your home and have fun!
