Weekend Recap: Thrifty Treasures

  1. C says:

    LOVE the vintage canisters & the chairs!!

  2. Magchunk says:

    What great finds! I did light thrifting (was shopping for someone else) and passed up some cute vintage fabric because the pieces were so small. but now I'm thinking I should go back and snap them up. You never know!

    I usually feel like the old lady too. Mostly because I'm sure I'm the only one of Ryan's friend's gfs who reads Martha Stewart.

    Oh, and I'm with you on waking up tired this morning, I almost fell asleep in the shower while I was washing my hair and I NEVER do that- ugg it was so hard to get moving this morning 🙂

    LOVE those cannisters… and your idea to use them in the office.

  13. Blair says:

    wow–you found some great things! That elephant is just precious!

  14. Shannon says:

    For a boring re-cap, your weekend was pretty jampacked. Love the chairs and they really would look awesome in white. I went thrifting and came up empty handed…again. I either have zero eye for potential or people in my area hoard all of their goodies. I'm hoping it's the latter…

  15. Dagny @ Beautiful Living says:

    Wow, you had a great weekend with some awesome finds! The chairs are going to look great with that vintage fabric, and it's an easy DIY as well! Can't wait to see the results! You know, I may take you up on that offer to ship for me, I SO appreciate it!

  16. Alicia B. Designs says:

    Looks like you got some amazing treasures! That Farmer's Cheese bowl is so cute! Don't you worry about that silly pound either. Brownies are totally worth it! Where did you go for those Italian Canisters…I'm obsessed with anything Italian…

  17. Lynett says:

    Love the chairs! I'm so jealous that you get to thrift. We don't have any good stores down here for that!! Great finds and I hope your day gets better 🙂

  18. Collins says:

    Too funny, that fabric is what was on my parent's sofa in the living room growing up!

  21. Molly says:

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
