Good morning and happy first #thriftscorethursday of 2015 to you!
Did you manage to squeeze any thrifting in over the holidays? I have to say, I haven’t been to a thrift store in what feels like forever… I feel a little thrifting adventure coming up this weekend!
Gretchen from Boxy Colonial is our guest host this week, here to help us welcome in a new year of thrifted goodness! She and her husband just built THE coolest modern plywood table for their basement living area – you’ve got to check it out!
If you’re joining us for #thriftscorethursday for the first time, welcome! It’s really easy to join our little hashtag party…
Simply post a picture of any recent find on Twitter or Instagram using #thriftscorethursday!
– You can share any thrifty finds with us – whether they hail from a thrift store, Craigslist, estate sale, garage sale, side of the road, or apartment dumpster! The fun, the funny, the awesome, the odd – this hashtag party is open to all!
– Feel free to use #thriftscorethursday any day of the week! We’ll be keeping up with the hashtag all week long to find our favorites for the following Thursday.
– Each week, Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from For My Love Of and I will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with#thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
A few weeks ago, I featured Turena’s (Instagram: tsfinds) incredible Pearsall gondola sofa find and promised to share pictures when she finished upholstering it! Check out the incredible job she did…
I love this feature from Rachel (Instagram: creationsbyrachelw) because it’s such a fantastically creative upcycle of her thrift scores (the mason jars)! And you all know how I feel about copper pipe + light fixtures…
Lastly, I just can’t get over this adorable brass bunny from Sandra (Instagram: lightglassandtrend). I’ve never met a brass animal I haven’t liked… Challenge accepted anyone? Prove me wrong!
I’m totally cheating.
I’ve already shared my vintage typewriter with you guys but for our Christmas party it began serving a new purpose…
It would be ridiculous to even call this a “hack” since the steps went: arrange speakers around typewriter; prop mp3 player (yes, that is a “vintage” Zune!); plug in speaker chord. But it definitely added a little bit of extra fun to our Christmas playlist!
Now it’s your turn! Have you done any thrifting recently? What have you found?
