Thrifty Treasures – Part 1

I haven’t shared my auction, estate sale, thrift store and yard sale finds in quite a while so I thought I’d catch up.

thrifty finds

  1. Set of two vintage gallery wrapped framed prints with apple green frames. I love the feminine, vintage girl and think these will be a great addition to a gallery wall.
  2. Set of two brass lamps got a coat of Valspar’s spray paint in SATIN SUMPTUOS PURPLE. It just so happens my niece has purple bedding so we’ll be giving her new room a fun and glamorous new look. Check out this inspiring bedroom makeover from Courtney (discovered via Young House Love) that’s given us ideas for Angel’s room.
  3. Beautiful accent table with hidden drawer. Bri will be painting this for her sister’s teeny tiny apartment.
  4. Set of two distressed coral/red metal roosters which now decorate the bulkhead in the kitchen. Perfect color – no work!
  5. Vintage typewriter in aqua. Ali found this and it’ll be a super cute accent piece for her new apartment.
  6. Owl plaque (painted the same pretty purple as the set of lamps) for my niece’s room.
  7. A cabinet with pull out shelving – perfect for cable box and DVD player with a makeover in the near future and the beautiful hardware. Right now they’re out in the open. I prefer hidden tv components.
  8. Bronze cup/vase and bronze horse. Just couldn’t pass these by. Love the shiny bronze color.

Ali {isn’t she cute?} snapped this picture of us at the estate auction, unsuspecting me and Bri in the background…girls days are so much fun!

Cant’ wait to share the makeovers and everything in their places. Some things are for our home, some for my relocating home sister’s rental house and a few items for my daughter’s soon-to-be-home apartment. I have more to share tomorrow. Do you have some awesome finds, thrifty treasures or repurposed DIY to share? Link up to the DIY Project Parade to show off! Let’s see!
