The other day I read an article about ten things to buy at a thrift store for yourself. It was a really good list. Let me see if I remember it.
- Old Dishes
- Throw Pillows
- Brass Decor
- Antique Blankets
I read this article and then I went straight to Goodwill to see if I could find anything worth sharing with you guys in a blog post and I did! I was a little wary of buying Pillows and blankets. I didn’t find any blankets but the pillow that I did find looked and smelled clean and when I got home I immediately put it in the dryer on high heat. I found almost everything on the list. The only things I didn’t find were blankets, lamps. baskets, and old books.
The first thing I found were some antique looking shelves. I’m fixing to redo my kitchen in grays and white so I could picture these in my kitchen when it’s done.
I just took them outside and painted them with some gray chalk spray paint and then went over it with a light white and distressed them.
The second thing I found was a brass bird. I loved the original brass but my husband wasn’t a fan so I painted it white.
Then I found a mirror. Someone had tried to paint it already but it looked terrible so I redid it.
I also found this really cute throw pillow for my bedroom.
Then I found some really cute pitchers. They needed some paint though. I’m not a huge fan of duck decor.
Then I saved the best for last. I found this really awesome antique meat grinder. It is going to look so good in my kitchen once I am done with it. It’s totally rustic and farmhouse.
I spent a total of $20 dollars at the Goodwill shopping for things for my home and I would say that for what I found you can’t beat that! I got a lot of bang for my buck. If you get inspired by this post and decide to try your hand at thrift store shopping please let us know! I would love to see what kind of transformations that you can do!
