Hello everyone! Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting a new party this week. I, like everyone else at this party, loves to go to yard sales, thrift stores, and just all out big sales. Heres a few things I have found in the last couple of weeks. We are redoing my daughters room. I will have more pics once we are completely through. But so far, we've been pleased with the results.
The first thing she needed was lamps. I found this one at a thrift store just up the street from me. It was a horrible brown/bronze color. Not very attractive at all. Sorry, I forgot to take a pic before. I do that sometimes. I painted it a nice shade of pink, which is the color we are adding to go with the green in her room. It looks totally different now.
For the other side of the bed, I found this little table that was perfect for a nightstand for only $6.00 at a yard sale. I haven't painted it or anything as of yet. Still deciding if I need to or not. I had the other lamp and spray painted it to match the thrift store lamp, then got coordinating lampshades.
Here is a pic of the two lamps together, what do you think? Can we get away with it? We might get the letter L monogrammed on the lampshades to bring them together even more. What do you think?
Lastly, the comforter was a find at Dirt Cheap. Its a small thrift store, so to speak, but usually its hand-me-downs from other stores like Target, etc. The comforter is a Martha Stewart find for $20.00 brand new. The pillows are from yard sales that I had put up for several months. I thought they went with it nicely. The pillows were .50 and $1.00 a piece.
Well, thats just a few thrifty finds of late. Be sure and check out Rhoda's blog at http://southernhospitality-rhoda.blogspot.com/ for more Thrifty Finds.
