Thrifty Thursday

More thrift store love....

A great wicker chair I found at a thrift store in Austin a few weeks ago. $10! It's hanging out in the guest room for now. May stay there permanently. (My paint really does not look like a baby poop yellow in real life! Swear!)



A chandelier I found yesterday for $15. Wasn't sure if it would look ok since our kitchen table has wicker and black iron accents, but I figured it would be fine since we have silver/stainless accents throughout the kitchen (your thoughts on the mix of black and silver? I see it on HGTV shows and it seems to work ok).

It sure beats the ugly ceiling fan the previous owners had up there!



Not a thrift store find, but since we put up the new chandelier, Hubs and I bought a new pendant light tonight to go over the sink. It just had the ugly builder-grade brass fixture with ugly plain globe. I hated it. I've been wanting a pendant light. Hubs picked out this new one. Wasn't my first choice, but I like it.





And just for grins...we took Cissy to the dog park today...

I have the best memories of the dog park when my puppy was alive!! She had the most fun there. Super cute pups!

I LOVE silver and black together! Also...super cute chair! I can't believe it was only $10. Great find :)

I really like the pendant light over the sink. It's kind of making me regret my recessed lights.

I like silver and black together. I really like the pendant light over the sink. Great deal on the wicker chair.

Looks like Cissy was having fun! I can't take mine to the dog park b/c they won't come back to me! I have to make everyone remove their dogs (or wait til it just happens) in order for my dogs to finally take a little break and sit down...and even then I have to sneak up on them to catch them! They never want to leave.

Our living room/dining room color shows up funky in photos too. *smiles*

Love the pendent light and chandelier. They just really make a room. (small changes)

Oh and the chair is an awesome find!

Don't you just love how sometimes your camera makes things look like colors they totally aren't...like poop yellow walls? I did a post recently on my bedroom "makeover" and a couple people commented on the "nice blue walls"....and I was like...umm, they are brown. A darker shade of it too.

I can't believe the awesome scores you got at your thrift store! I mean wow!! I just always seem to find junk at mine.

Chris said...

Okay, I NEVER find deals like that at my thrift stores! Love the chair!

Candy Allen said...

Great bargains! I really like the new pendant light too. We need to do the same thing very soon!!

Way to go on the great thrift finds. Just recently I found a tiny little apothecary jar (in my latest post), plus LOTS of great jewelry to use as charms and such in future craft projects.

The wicker chair looks wonderful in the guest room! I also love the pendant light you put up above your kitchen sink! :) The chandelier in your dining room is beautiful! :)
