In order to participate in one of my favorite parties,

I’m sharing my latest thrifty treasures. If you’re a regular follower, you’ve seen a few already but it’s a party. You don’t mind, do you? Besides there are a few you haven’t seen yet. 🙂

This wire basket is an older find, but when playing dress up with our new made over living room, I put it on the coffee table. Mr. DIY said “it looks like a flea market.” I said “thank you”! haha! I’m sure he meant it as a compliment! I like it here but I change this decor out on a weekly basis since I love fresh flowers.

I scored a bunch of vintage boxes and crates at an estate sale. Is it a little obvious that I love them?

Then there are these ones.

I‘m not 100% these one will stay here…they’re a little too vintage for the back entry furniture but for now…I’m enjoying looking at them until a better location comes to mind. I’m fickle that way anyway and move things around often. Redecorating is the reward to ‘cleaning’, right?

And this old fan for $10 which works too well. It scares me with it’s industrial strength, metal blades and room for fingers but I love the look. We just leave it unplugged. If there comes a time when we need it, we’ll use extra caution. I like all of my fingers intact.
Oh and this thrifty find from previous owners. An ugly brown unloved peg hook/coat rack which I rediscovered and painted for our bathroom.

I have a few more thrifty treasures I got just this past weekend too but you’ll have to wait to see the transformation. Always a DIY project in the works. or two or three. 🙂

So, have you found any thrifty treasures recently?
