What would you know, it’s Thrift Score Thursday once more ‘round here! I’m delighted to have you joining me and my cohost Trisha from Black and White Obsession and our awesome guest host Emily from Go Haus Go this week!
Do you know Emily yet? If not, I’m about to do you the biggest favor ever and introduce you to her fantastic style. Like her gorgeous kitchen makeover of Better Homes & Gardens fame, her sexy office with delectable black walls, and these curvaceous yellow tufted chairs that are quite possibly the coolest pieces of furniture I have ever seen and the ones I am most likely to go to prison for attempted theft…
I can’t wait to see what she’s sharing for #thriftscorethursday this week!

How amazing is this Danish midcentury chair Abi from Laughing Abi (Instagram: laughingabi) finally talked herself into purchasing? She says she debated the purchase for an hour because she didn’t have a place for the $70 treasure, but I’m so glad she ended up taking it home! Some things you just can’t walk away from!
You guys know my love for vintage art and portraiture, no matter if it’s a little creepy. So I just love this little 70’s jester-girl with an almost-creepy vibe that Lea (Instagram: livinginlayers) shared, perfect for Halloween!
A reader recently emailed me about a tutorial for dying a velvet sofa she was trying to track down. I wasn’t able to point her in the right direction, but I asked her to pass the tutorial on to me if she ended up finding it, and sure enough she did. Thank you Vonda! (Tutorial here.)
I just can’t help thinking how fabulous Kayla’s sofa find would be dyed a rich royal or navy blue! So thrifters, file this one away for future reference.
These vintage locker baskets were one of my first really good thrift finds several years ago and I’ve hoarded them ever since waiting for the perfect purpose. It just so happens that they are a) the perfect size to hold DVDs, and b) the four of them fit perfectly in my “new” antique buffet-turned-tv-stand. I’m in love!
These baskets were made by Kaspar Wire Works in Shiner, Texas – love the vintage tags!
And now it’s your turn! Share your recent thrifty finds with us! What’s your best score?
