You may already know that I loooove me some thrift store shopping. I've done it for years. I enjoy it even more than antique store shopping because the bargains are better even if the selection isn't. There's no regularity to my thrifting. I just get out and hunt whenever the feeling hits me. It's more fun that way. Yesterday after I picked up the boy from school, we popped by Sally's (aka Salvation Army) on our way home and I got quite a good haul all for under $20. Some of it will be refurbished with paint, some will go into my etsy shop, and others I will keep. Can you guess which?
And here is another little find I picked up from a prior thrifting trip for just $1.95. I finally brought it in from the garage, wiped it down and used wood glue to better secure the legs to the seat. The seat is a little warped but I think imperfection adds to the charm. Up next, is a coat of paint (not sure if I'm going to use white or black--I'm leaning toward white) and maybe some French accents. You'll have to check back to see how it turns out.
