Recent Thrifty Finds

It's no secret that I love to shop at thrift stores for my home decor.  I get such a rush when I score something totally cool for almost nothing.  These past few weeks were pretty good to me too... so here are a few of my recent thrifty finds.

I SCORED this hutch for my kitchen off our local classifieds for only $25.  I had been looking for one for quite a while and they were either too far away to drive and pick up, or too much money.  So I pounced on this as soon as I saw it.

I can't wait to refinish it and get it in my new kitchen!

Next up, I found this really cool wall decor piece.  I'm not sure what it's made out of... but it has a carved detail to it.  The price tag said $15, but it has a small hairline crack in it so I talked them down to only $10.  SCORE!

Lastly, this cute little wall picture caught my eye... and when I saw the $0.75 price tag I said "that's mine!".  

What's funny is I saw this same piece at my friend's house when we had Bonko a couple weeks ago.  (Yes it's Bonko, not Bunco, but that's another story).  Anyway, I told her I found the same thing at the DI for $0.75 and she couldn't believe it.... she paid $25 for hers!  But her home is absolutely gorgeous and she definitely has good taste.... and a talent for DIY projects.  I'll have to get some photos from her to show you.

But like I said before, I love a great deal and good decor doesn't have to cost a fortune.  Happy Thrifting!
