Can you believe May is already here and it’s time to show off my Thrift Score Thursday April Features? I just can’t. This year is flying by!
By now, hopefully you’ve settled into our monthly blog post format, with weekly features on instagram. With these new monthly posts and features, we’re all being a little pickier as we have one month of thrifted finds to squeeze into a handful of features. If you are new here (first, hi! I am glad you’re here!), let me explain just what #thriftscorethursday is. We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and treasures and how you style them in your home. That’s right… I am looking for gorgeous photos of interiors with your finds styled to perfection.
Don’t feel like you need to save those finds for Thursdays! Yes, features are shared on our blogs once a month and Instagram weekly on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it! And we love it when you tag your friends to play along, too!
The first Thursday of each month, Brynne from The Gathered Home, Maggie from Maggie Overby Studios and I will pick our favorite thrift scores to feature. So please note that by linking up with#thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.
It’s been a looooooong time since I’ve shared my own finds, but that’s because a) I have no more store, b) I’m a terrible etsy shop owner, and c) I am trying really hard not to spend unnecessarily, and that includes even thrift shops and yard sales. However, today I have an exciting find that fell into my lap. Last Summer, I befriended a girl who had just moved here and we started running or walking together with our dogs on the weekends. She and her husband have been working on their own home and adopting a second rescue dog; we also share a very similar dark and dry humor. Anyhow, she texted me last weekend to tell me her mom was giving away a pair of chairs and she thought they might be my style. #nailedit
Check out this awesome pair of bamboo swivel/rocker chairs her mom gave me! Currently I stuck them on the porch, just because we have no room, although I have some plans for them in the future. Aren’t the backs amazing?
They are in need of new cushions as the current ones are outdated. Whenever I get them in place, that will change.
Now I’ve got 8 features to share with you today. There were so many I loved, and usually I try to keep it around 6, but I couldn’t help myself.
First up, I wanted to share Rosie Case, because she has two finds I loved. Her home is light, bright, and beautiful, yet so quirky and unique. She can do no wrong in my book. She shared this lion she scored and rested on her table, because that’s exactly where the king of the jungle belongs.
She also shared this lip chair, and I will admit I am usually not a fan of the words “lip chair” when placed together. I imagine a chair in the shape of the Rolling Stones mouth. However, this sweet pink chair is glamorous, subtle, and lovely.
Emily showed off her comfy cozy midcentury leather sofa and adorable pup.
Audrey, aka Queen of Plewtopia, found a brightly colored Mexican blanket. I love the pattern on this one, and how cozy it looks in this room.Laura scored this fantastic leather chair at her local Habitat Restore. Let me tell you… last week I went into my own local Restore with Sarah Dorsey, and we saw SO many things we loved, including a pair of aqua midcentury chairs. Somehow we walked out not spending a dime.
Speaking of chairs, Connie found a mismatched pair of MCM chairs and they look perfect next to her stunning sideboard!
One more chair find for you today… I love not only the chair, but the story that goes along with it. Caitlin told her husband she was headed to the grocery store, but then came home with this chair. I’ll be shopping at her grocery store from now on! 😉
That’s all of my features for this month. Make sure you head on over to my lovely cohosts to see what they’ve found and featured this month as well!
