Happy Saturday! YAY weekend! Before I get into the POWW faves, I wanted to share a few recent thrifty finds that are for me. I think the master bedroom may be next on the list, and this past week I brought in a few new touches. Last week, I showed you our new quilt, and last Sunday we hit IKEA. I was searching for some pillows with a punch of color, but didn’t find any. I did, however find two pillows that were meant for our bedding. They couldn’t be any more perfect!
Anyhow, I tried out Tuesday Morning this week, and found a great little pillow with the color I wanted to bring in, and it had a $9 price tag! I actually bought 2 since they only had 2, and figured I could return the other one, but I don’t think I need to and you will see why in a minute.
Here is a picture showing all the new pillows, the white with blue dot pillows are the IKEA ones, and the red and orange pillow is the one that came from Tuesday Morning…
I’ve been hitting the thrift shops this week, and Sarah introduced me to a new one (Thanks, Sarah!), which may end up being dangerous. I found this chair there for $26! I just love its curvy legs, and it is in great shape! It now sits in the bedroom, and the spare pillow may or may not stay.
Here it is in the corner of our bedroom, next to our armoire. I also hung a couple family pictures in the corner. Of course, this room has yet to be painted, and the trim will get painted as well!
Another recent find was a GIANT map. I have been collecting several maps (I need frames for more), and wanted a large one to serve as the center piece of a map wall in the playroom. So the wall has been started now, thanks to this find, one I purchased at the Elizabeth and Co tag sale, and one of many I received from my friend Kathy. Here is where it stands right now…
The giant map had a price tag of $15 and was already mounted and ready to hang! I was thinking it would have been nice if it was more vintage as opposed to only 10 years ago, and then I realized that 1992 was not just 10 years ago, but 20. Really? 1992 was 20 years ago??? Ugh.
Moving on, let’s check out this week’s POWW faves!
This stained Union Jack table from Domestic Imperfection is, well, perfection!
Love this sweet play kitchen from Dans Le Townhouse, and it is accessorized beautifully. Emmy would love playing here!
The Junk in Our Trunks shared this fun chalkboard dresser, with paper dolls painted on it! Emmy would love coloring this girl in, too! It’s such a fun idea!
The Charmed Nest shared this awesome black dresser. I love the combination of the black with the natural baskets.
Shari from Turnstyle Vogue shared a great idea for spindles on chairs- wrap them in twine!
