Just a reminder that next week will be our LAST Thrifty Treasures party of the year! It’s been fun, but time to take a break.
It has been an exciting week, working on the HGTV pilot show behind the scenes with my friends, Layla and Keviin, with The Lettered Cottage. Wow, is it a lot of hard work to get a room camera-ready in about 4 days. There were plenty of volunteers who came out to sew, paint, strip wallpaper, and be handy women and men. It was a fun collaborative project and I was happy to be there. I’ll share more on that soon, although I will NOT be able to share the finished room with y’all! I know, bummer! But, that is TV for you.
Everyday Lovely found a pretty vintage green suitcase at the thriftstore. Now, this made me chuckle, as the 60’s and 70’s are becoming more and more vintage. I had an orange set of luggage from the 70’s that was very similar to this one, right down to the little mirror inside. It’s probably floating around a thriftstore somewhere and had 3 pieces to it.
Collect Jadite? Did you know there are fakes out there? Willow & Paisley gives the low-down on how to spot a fake.
Janet from The Empty Nest, found a jackpot of a deal on blue vintage Ball jars. These were $1 each, what a score that was!
Take a look at this $10 chair find from Rhonda. I’m a sucker for a cute chair!
My 1929 Charmer scored a $100 buffet from the 30’s at Salvation Army and decided to paint her white. I think that was a wise decision, don’t you?
Stacey from Embracing Change got the deal of a century with this probably1930’s set of dining room furniture off Freecyle for FREE! Did you hear that? A table and 4 chairs, buffet and china cabinet, all for free. You can’t beat that!
Find out how Penny for Penny painted a $20 estate sale chair with fabric paint. Instead of tackling reupholstery, she painted her chair! Did you know there is fabric medium that can be mixed with paint and you can paint fabric? Now you do! I love how this turned out.
I just love original artwork scored on the cheap. Houseography found a $2.95 beauty at Goodwill. Love it!
Project Queen found a beautiful table and 4 chairs for $150 thrifting and repainted in chalk paint in that beautiful turquoise shade. Lovely!
So, what did YOU find this week?
There are a TON of parties out there to highlight all your projects, so please let’s keep this one about thrifty finds that were bought 2nd hand! Not a great sale from the store, or a recipe, or just a plain project, but 2nd Hand finds only!
And please DO NOT go back in your archives to OLD posts and link up. Let’s keep this party fresh and current! If you have already shared your find in a previous party, DON’T share it again! Please, girls, I don’t want to have to delete links.
- Add your permalink to the link list, which is the actual post that you did for this party, NOT your general blog url. To get the actual post, after you publish the post, just click on the title and THAT will be your party post url. PLEASE try to get the correct url in the first time!
- Please add my button to your post or blog OR at least link back to this post in your post. That’s all I ask. It’s common courtesy to link back to the person having the party, so that all of your readers can find it too.
- Please do NOT link to an Etsy shop or something similar (even if you think it’s a fabulous deal) or I will delete the link. This party is for sharing thrifty finds from yardsales, thriftstores, or something along those lines. If I see that your post is not really on track with this theme AND you don’t link back, I’ll delete your link. Sorry, but I’d like to keep the party consistent! IF YOU SEE THAT YOUR LINK HAS BEEN DELETED, IT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE IT IS NOT IN LINE WITH THIS PARTY THEME.
