Thrifty Treasures

Design, Interior / Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

I’ve posted in the past that I LOVE finding good furniture at thrift stores, Goodwill, or anywhere else where I pay a fraction of the price. I did some research and found a store rightly named The Bargain Store. Simple enough, right? The owner gets shipments weekly of furniture and goodies and she prices them accordingly.

I have been on the lookout for a large dresser for our bedroom since neither of our previously owned dressers were big enough to hold both of our folded clothes. I came across this beauty…


For $40.00! And it’s huge!

In the same day, there was family friend that was cleaning out her late parents’ house. We made our way over there and it is amazing we didn’t leave with all the furniture they had, it was all so vintage and timeless. I talked Evan into getting a vanity and he also got an old school ice cream maker that he just couldn’t leave without.

The mirror to the vanity and the small details are really what sold me.

These two gems are now sitting in our garage waiting their turn to be refurbished. It’s only a matter of time before I get out the elbow grease and get to work. I can’t wait!
