Good morning and a happy Thursday to you! It hardly even feels like a Thursday, thanks to our Monday holiday. I hope my U.S. readers had a lovely Fourth – did you manage to work any thrift shopping into your long weekend?
My coffee table styling got a little re-mix thanks to a few fun finds I picked up recently. I found the two panther figures and the marble Chinese checkers board for $1.99 each at two different Goodwill stores on the same day! The colors were perfect for the more neutral pull I’ve felt recently.
The panthers are stamped “Marco Giner” underneath, and some glue remnants underneath and Internet searching revealed they probably stood on lucite pedestals at one time. (Sob! If only!). They felt very Kelly Wearstler to me, and I play “WWKWD?” at thrift stores on the regular, so the answer was definitely “yes” when I considered whether or not I should bring them home!
I just adore the colors in the marble/soap stone (?) Chinese checkers board. It makes a great base for a favorite candle!
Thrift Score Thursday Features:
Favorites from the #thriftscorethursday feed on Instagram, as always lovingly picked by yours truly!
First off is this adorable little puppy planter Jewel (@cactushound) found while dropping donations off at a local thrift store. I mean, that’s just good karma, right?!
@vintageparlororiginals shared this throne-like iron chair with the cutest Bohemian fringe-y upholstery job. I’d adopt this piece any day!
Of course, I loved hearing that this adorable vintage croquet set was handed down to Ashley (@vintagerefined) from her grandparents!
Finally, in light of my recent post all about how to decorate with gathered furniture, I absolutely had to share this incredible sideboard makeover from Kristine (@thepaintedhive). You HAVE to see the “before” on her blog, scored for just $5. She did all sorts of repairs, created new doors, and gave it this gorgeous stenciled treatment! And the best part is, it’s all for a good cause… Wow!
