How cool would these old theater seats be in a home media room?
Clearly, they are in desperate need of cleaning and fresh fabric. If I were building my dream home, I would snap these babies up and have them reupholstered (or figure out how to DIY the job). SA was asking $200....
This little side table/magazine rack is a little shabby right now, but I can imagine a fresh coat of white paint and a really cool modern stencil on the sides of the racks:
We spotted this small console table (piano bench!) in the back of the store.
It's a small piece, but those of us who don't have foyers or large entryways (me!) could use something like this to hold a basket of keys/mail and a picture frame. It was definitely more table height rather than bench height. Not a lot of storage, unless you pair it with...
...this neat basket.
We thought this little nightstand would be another nice addition to anyone's home with a coat of paint:
This coffee table looks dated now, but like the other pieces, sometimes paint and updated styling are all that a thrifty find needs to make it fit into your home today!
Wasn't that fun? The thrifty-find-hunter in me wanted to bring some of those pieces home for rehab, but the common sense in me sent a reminder that I have plenty of projects waiting already!
I haven't been into our SA in a long time because I felt like I needed to complete more of the projects on my to-do list before planning any new ones. Sometimes it is very hit or miss with what you'll find, and my SA often seems to mark furniture up beyond what I think is a fair price for a thrift store...but it sure is fun to hunt!
Have you scouted out any cool thrifty finds lately?
