Happy Thrift Score Thursday!If you are new 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.
Don’t feel like you need to save those finds for Thursdays! Yes, features are shared on our blogs and Instagram 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!
Each week Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from For A Designer at Home, Maggie from Maggie Overby Studios, and once monthly a guest co-host will pick a favorite thrift score or two 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.
This week I wanted to share something I found a long time ago to do as a project and never completed… but luckily I have talented vendors at Sweet Clover and I passed the half done project on to Cloher Collections.
A friend texted me a couple years ago and let me know that there were some chairs sitting out for trash at their neighbor’s house. I hopped in my car, and headed over, and ended up grabbing a gorgeous balloon back chair with a seriously weathered finish. It needed reupholstery on the seat in a bad way, too, and I thought I might finally teach myself. (Insert laugh track here). I painted the body General Finishes Emerald Green, gave it their glossy topcoat, and then let it sit in my basement for approximately 20 months. It’s all part of the process.
Finally after allowing it to cure for 20 months, I passed it onto the ladies of Cloher Collections so they could give it that finishing touch to make it shine. Diane covered the seat in an amazing navy Zebra fabric and the combination is killer!
Now let’s get to the features this week!
Eirene found this amazing blanket; however it’s not the blanket but the styling that caught my eye. It’s making a blanket statement. (I told you before, I like lame word jokes!)You can find Eirene on instagram here.
Elise scored this great rocking chair and once again it’s the styling that got me.

Sara found this fabulous basket, and I found out she doesn’t live too far from me… might have to follow her and find out where she’s thrifting. 😉 Also, she sells her modern macrame on etsy!You can find Sara on instagram here.
