  1. LindsB says:

    Seriously you always find the best things! LOVE this chest and I cant wait to see it in the nursery!

  2. Kate Collins says:

    Fantastic find!! I can’t wait to see the nursery. I’m sure it’ll be fabulous. I think my best find so far was actually fashion related – black patent pump never worn Louboutins for $75

  3. Barbara says:

    You’re just great at finding the best deals ever! That piece looks perfect for your nursery, Im excited to see what you’re going to do with it!


  4. Kendra says:

    I love, love, LOVE it! Great find!

  5. Danielle says:

    Wow, what a deal! I scored 4 vintage faux bamboo chairs for $75.00, I don’t think i will ever get a deal like that again!

  6. Grace says:

    What a great find! My best find was a pair of Dorothy Draper Espana dressers on Craigslist for $70 each. They belonged to the seller’s mother since the 40s and they were in such great shape, just faded.

  7. Sarah says:

    Great score, I’m so jealous! So far my best is a $2 piece of blue quartz, that my daughters teacher just informed me is extremely rare & valuable. Now if I could just find someone to appraise it, I’m dying to know how valuable it really is!

  8. Ashley says:

    What a fantastic find! I’m sure you’re little boy will eventually appreciate the design pedigree of his nursery furniture! 🙂

    What a terrific find! The magic of a smartphone is you can do all of that research while standing over your treasure at the thrift store. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Bonnie says:

    I love a great find! I happen to be lucky while thrifting! I am curious the name and location of the store in Brooklyn. My son and his girlfriend live there and are looking fir fun & inexpensive ways to decorat their apartment. Thanks!!

      Hi Bonnie,

      I’m sorry, but the store wasn’t in Brooklyn. It was a just a stop I made on my home from Brooklyn. It’s actually on Long Island.

        Hi Camila,

        I’d also love to hear a list of your go-to thrift resources!!! I live in the NYC area and I think in metro areas like New York the thrifting marketplace is very different and oversubscribed and highly competitive than in other places! I currently need to furnish a whole house on the cheap, and am always keen to hear where others have had good luck finding treasures!

  11. Stephanie says:

    Found an amazing Kincaid dresser for $15!!!! It is quality made and may need a paint but hubby loves as is!

  12. Madeline says:

    Love the server, it’s definately a great find. Can’t wait to see the final look!

  13. Caroline says:

    LOVE the server, love it more because you’re not actually using it as a server. May I ask what thrift store(s) on LI you shop at? I once found a fabulous art deco wardrobe at the St. Vincents on Jericho Tpke. I could spend hours in there!

  14. Rina says:

    I can’t wait to see your baby nursery. I have not started mine yet!

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 […]
