Hey you guys! It’s our second Thrift Score Thursday roundup of 2017 and I have some absolutely stunning features to share with you today!
I’ve been thrifting a lot lately (a little too much, to be honest), so I have lots of fodder for future blog posts – now that the GIANT secret project is finally out in the open! If you missed it, you can check out my new DIY laminate floors right here!
Overall, a strong start to the year on the thrifting front, and it looks like it was the same for many of you guys based on your #thriftscorethursday posts!

Thrift Score Thursday Features
Oh you guys! There were such amazing finds in the #thriftscorethursday feed on Instagram this month! Every time I scroll through, I get such an irresistible urge to head out and hit my local thrift stores. If you aren’t visiting the hashtag and clicking around, you are missing out on some super inspiring finds!
Feast your eyes on the beautiful colors and patterns of this china collection from Cathy (@cathy_temple)! The pierced pot in the middle with raised flowers is her most recent find, but all the Chinoiserie designs are so drool-worthy.
Love Chinoiserie? Check out this post – C is for Chinoiserie for more eye-candy!
And just look at this insanely glam crystal chandelier Jennifer (@jenniferdimplesandtangles) found on Craigslist! I can’t wait to see where she hangs it in her home!
I love seeing a good shelfie in the #thriftscorethursday feed! Kim (@refoundvintagenewyork) styled her shelves with the perfect blend of found objects and nature touches.
You guys. Are you following Natasha (@natasha.meininger) yet? I’m obsessed with her style and the way she gathers vintage finds together! Specifically, those vintage busts and ginger jar on the mantel were recent finds and I love the way she styled them!
Now THIS is how you style a thrifted sofa! This is another new-to-me account that I stumbled across – Monica (@allsurreal) lives in a converted 1930’s church and you should totally check out the other pictures of her home!
So much inspiring color this month – perfect for dreary winter days! Jo (@jmwearing) added this bold thrifted wall hanging to her guest room and it’s the perfect amount of color in an other-wise beautifully neutral space.
The gallery wall isn’t going anywhere, nor should it, as this gorgeous scene from Claire (@clairedesignsthings) proves. She found the seated lady painting for $5 at a local thrift store, and that Mid Century lamp was a Craigslist find!
I’ve got to say, I audibly gasped when my brain figured out what was going on in this gorgeous photo from Erica (@ericareitman)! At first, I was mesmerized by the colors and textures, and then I was blown away when I saw the scale of this beauty next to the chair and read the full caption!
This 9-foot (NINE!) weaving was an estate sale find by Erica’s cousin who had the utter selflessness to give it to Erica… The stuff of dreams, my friend!
You’ve gotta love Charmaine’s Instagram account for the name alone – @mybestfriendcraig – in celebration of, you guessed it, her love for Craigslist! She says that everything you see in this shot of her dining room, except the rug, was thrifted! I want to shop where she shops!
So let’s hear it – which fabulous finds caught your eye and make your heart skip a beat? If you put me alone in a room with Erica’s wall hanging, Jennifer’s chandelier, and Charmaine’s dining chairs…. I don’t know which I would grab first, but I do know that I would die trying to grab them all!
Next, be sure to check out the features from Cassie & Maggie!
