I had the pleasure of meeting the incredibly creative and talented Katja at Haven this summer and I just know you will become a devoted reader of her blog if you aren’t one already! I got to see her DIY leather and felt laptop bag in person and couldn’t believe she made it herself!
Now, before we jump into this features and my freaking awesome find that I’m having a really hard time keeping quiet about, are there any #thriftscorethursday newbies in the house?
Join the fun by sharing a picture of any recent thrifty find on Instagram or Twitter (or both!) 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 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.
I went nuts for this amazing moose figurine posted by Stephanie from Sandpaper & Glue (Instagram: sandpaperglue) – apparently, she bid on it online and really underestimated its size! Haha – extra awesome! She might paint it gold – what do you think?
The second picture that stopped me in my tracks was this insane tufted yellow sofa shared by Jamala from Viva La Vintage For Your Home (Instagram: urvintagegirl) because there’s a shortlist of minor felonies I would consider committing in order to get my hands on it! (Just kidding. Of course.)
Do you see that price tag? $25. Oh the agony.
Finally, I just have to shout out Trisha’s (Instagram: bnwobsession) amazing vintage camping trailer she debuted at last week’s Thrift Score Thursday! I cannot wait to follow along with its transformation! Be sure to keep up with #projectskylarkreno on Instagram!
While I may not have managed to get my greedy little as-yet-felonyless fingers on that amazingly underpriced tufted sofa, I’m still pretty pleased and proud of the find I’m sharing this week!
I shared a picture on Instagram a few weeks ago and I am finally getting around to posting about my second brass coffee table Craigslist score, which you got a sneak peek of last week…
Meet my new bff – a vintage tubular brass coffee table attributed to Karl Springer! See one here on 1st Dibs sitting at a cool $2500. I kind of don’t want to post how much I paid for it because a) you will hate me and b) it sounds like a terribly exaggerated lie, but I found this awesome piece on Craigslist in a neighboring town for just… *whispers*… thirty dollars. And c) I already scored a crazy amazing brass and glass coffee table – my dream coffee table – for pennies earlier this summer, but I kind of like this one more (maybe?) and it fits the living room better.
I know. I hate me too.
But you guys, I’m having serious living room drama and difficulty pinning down a good furniture arrangement. And so I have three coffee tables right now because I don’t want to make any rash decisions.
It’s hard being a hoarder.
Any other crazy coffee table hoarders in the house? What’s your best recent thrifty score? Share with the party!
