So my mom and I did a bit of thriftin/antiquing last week and I thought I'd share some of my finds. Normally I bring home my stuff and it gets stuffed in a closet, box, drawer or open spot till I figure out how and where to use it. This time I put all my finds into commish right away!
First up, the truck. It was dirt cheap cuz of the missing cab, but fine by me, the better to make this...
Saw this in a Country Living and have been wanting to copy it forever. Who knew succulents were so darn cute? And easy to grow? And cheap? Well I'm on to them now and seriously in love. Here's a few more pics
I also put that tablecloth to use. I know, I know, it's very spring looking and we currently have 10" of snow on the ground but hey, I'm trying to pretend its 70 and lovely out.
Some old ticking fabric and a vintage letterman letter was all I needed.
The other side of the room needs some work. I put a table in here for a desk but would like to find an old chippy white table and add some shelves to the wall. My sis gave me the awesome porcelain sign. She found it at a thrift store for $6.00. Yowzers! Wish that happened every day!
That's my thrifty finds for the week. In the spirit of Valentines day I'll leave you with a pic of my chalkboard in the family room (I am a little obsessed with chalkboards, I don't care if they are "so last year")
