Thrifty Thursday, I think I did good this past week :). A mint green chair in great condition structurally but could use re-painting, a queen-sized corduroy quilt that is absolutely gorgeous and only needs a little mending on one small part of an edge, and a beautiful piece of handmade pottery, a bowl weighing in at about 2 pounds. I didn't need any of these things, but did that stop me?!!
I am not sure how my husband is going to take this, but I feel a new addiction coming on. This is SO MUCH FUN!! And in a town where cool finds like these seem to be everywhere, we are definitely in trouble here.
In regards to finding furniture for home (we get the keys Saturday-yippeee!), I will proudly say that so far nearly everything we have purchased is recycled and upcycled furniture, from consignment or made from reclaimed pieces of wood and materials. The only exception is our mattress and bedframe that we purchased new last weekend, but even that is made from all wood and all natural materials. I am hoping we can keep this up with just a few more necessities to go. I do look forward to showing you these things, but I've got to get in the house first :)!!
Happy Thrifty Thursday!
