Weekend Recap: Thrifting

  1. Hamptontoes says:

    Oh darling, I'm in love with the bamboo set… and dreaming about it in my guest room in the Hamptons! I'm currently re-doing the room and pulling it together. I spent the weekend on the beach with the children and husband…loving every second!

  2. Janell @ Isabella and Max says:

    It will be fun to see what you do with such a small space! Good luck and adore those bamboo chairs! Janell

  3. LindsB says:

    What great finds! I'm crossing my fingers that you won the arguement with your sister, I'm all for non-matchy-matchy. Team Camilla all the way 🙂

  4. Preppy Little Dress says:

    Nice finds, love the paint job on the dresser and chair! Can't wait to see the finished product!!

  5. Hannah says:

    What wonderful finds! That piece of furniture looks amazing painted white–good work! Can't wait to see waht you do with the apartment.

  6. Erika at BluLabel Bungalow says:

    I love a successful treasure hunt! You found some really awesome pieces.

    If you get into a jam with your sister's place, House Beautiful's section on small spaces should get your creative juices flowing. Good luck, hun!

  7. Stacey @ Petite de Lis Paperie says:

    I am so jealous of the thrifty finds you come across in NY. I would love to find similar pieces here in Louisiana…sigh. I can't wait to see what you do with your sister's new space!!!

    I so excited to see you in action with a small space, we have a small house so any tips along they way with helping your sis are always welcomed!! 🙂

  18. Liz @ It's Great To Be Home says:

    Sounds like an excellent weekend! I wish mine was as full with thrifting, you got some great finds! (I've been wanting a vintage fan like that, so jealous). Can't wait to see how your sister's space turns out!

  19. Design Esquire says:

    I can't wait to see what you do with your sister's apartment! It's going to be amazing.

  20. J. Is A Bird says:

    What a great weekend for you guys.

    But seriously, that's not a room, that's a hallway. Not that I should talk. We have a similar situation except we're talking about a duplex in LA. Our solution? We turned it into a closet. Hey, we're clothes whores, what can you do;)

    Can't wait to see pics of what you guys do with such a small space.

  21. Kate@TwentySixToLife says:

    What great finds!

  22. Lissa @ After Adornment says:

    Whew. What a weekend!
    Can't wait to see the final space…especially being so small.
    I also am having the same argument with my sister about matchy matchy pieces for her apartment!

  23. Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy says:

    Nothing nearly as exciting as that! You found some amazing things!! I love the bamboo set!! Looking forward to seeing both clients' places!

  24. Flavia @ Estilo Home says:

    These are such amazing finds! LOVE the bamboo desk!

  25. Shannon @ Sit.Relax.Gossip. says:

    That bamboo set is AMAZING! What a lucky sister you have. Can't wait to see the finished product!

  26. Kym @ styleDISH says:

    You find THE best stuff!!! Clearly I am not looking at the same sources!! I can't wait to see the faux bamboo!!! Kym

  27. Kirsten says:

    Oh but Emily is so beautiful.

  28. Loretta Fontaine says:

    My weekend was not nearly as busy as yours! Love your finds! I had family visit from the downstate, so we entertained a bit. All I did was cook – made the Curtis Stone Blueberry Pancakes from House Beautiful mag. Yum! Can't wait to see your sister's space done. Hope she nixes the matchy-matchy!

  29. Claire Watkins, ASID allied says:

    Love those klismos chairs! Didn't you tell your sister that you were a big deal design blogger and that of course pairs are not necessary! Sounds like a great weekend.

    What a doll Jon is, building you a shed!

  30. Hello Lover... says:

    I hope you won that argument – sets are so boring and that bamboo desk is so great!

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 […]
