Today I went thrift shopping and boy has it been a LONG time since I've done that. In fact, I had the whole day to myself...without my 2 kiddos. I took advantage of an opening at my awesome home daycare that I use during the school year and enjoyed some alone time since school got out in early June.
I thought I'd share a few of the finds I purchased today.
The first was this glass jar and top. It's funny because they don't really go together. I think the lid is from something else, but they work together and for $1.50 you can't beat it.
The next item I found was this simple wooden crate...is it a crate? I thought I could either stain it or paint it and this fall, fill it with some small (fake) red and green apples. I can also envision flowers in it during the spring. This, too, was around $1.00.
One of the pillows on my couch has colors in it that I am pulling from: turquoise (muted), mustard, and dark red. This piece caught my eye because it fell into the "mustard" category. It was $2.00.
The above picture makes it look a bit darker than it actually is. This picture is lighter and truer.
The last piece I purchased today was a candle holder. I was pretty excited about this one being priced at $3.88. It was hollering "SPRAY PAINT." The colors are endless, but I will probably stick to something close to the natural color..maybe rubbed oil bronze at this point. Some day though, when I want it for another place, I would love to spray paint it a vibrant color.
This is the truer color...in the natural light.
So there you have it--my thrifting for the day and all for under $10.00.
Hopefully soon I can write another post about how I am utilizing all of the things I bought today.
