Salvation Army in ages. I figured it was time to head in and see what kinds of diamonds in the rough were waiting for me. The pickings were a bit slim this time, not much in the furniture department, but I did see a few pieces that made me wish I had a workshop to do some makeover work in! Come thrifting with me!
As usual, many of these pieces just need fresh paint in an on-trend/classic color and new hardware.
Case in point. I can see this beauty in someone's dining space or morning room. In trendy shade of gray, with a stenciled background in a graphic pattern and contrasting color. Too perfect to display a collection of creamware!
This set of nightstands would be perfect for someone's bedroom makeover. New paint, cute lamps, and a tray with fresh flowers.
These honey oak stools scream "1990s", but they could be easily introduced to the new century with paint...maybe dipped legs too?
A neglected magazine rack like this one could make a super-cute book holder for a child's library nook. See how I made one over here.
I don't remember the exact price of these coffee tables, but I do remember that they were a steal. A fab spot for your favorite magazines and a cup of coffee.
Don't ignore the little stuff! Just $2 for this tripod, and some Clorox wipes would have cleaned it up nicely.
I've seen dozens of these dressers on blogs, painted in a cool ombre color scheme.
This mission-style piece was in good shape.
There are soooo many things that you could do with this old bookcase. What are your ideas?
I recognized this dresser from IKEA immediately...
...because it's actually a changing table!
And, one more dresser. I loved the lines on this one. Just needs some TLC.
Which piece is your fave, and how would you fix it up?
