i found some great treasures at a local thrift store recently. at first glance, i thought i was out of luck, but with a bit of searching, i came across some things with potential. a little tlc and they will be looking great!
what i brought home:
two stools: $16 total
black wire crate: $2
two ceramic bowls: $1 total
red basket: $.75
tea candle holders: $.50 total
milk bottle vase: $.50
two pier 1 bamboo trays: $3 total
total for all the loot: $23.75
i have bought some red spray paint, orb, and some blue, to transform the stools, bamboo trays, and possibly the vase. i can't decide whether to paint the black wire basket a bright fun color, or leave it black. any thoughts? i might use it as a fruit holder, specifically for all the bananas we have (which is tons!).
the stools aren't really what i imagined for our space, i was thinking more like these beauties...
but for the price, the ones i got will work just fine until we can save up for something more permanent.
my favorite color scheme is blues, reds, and oranges. i love the combo... a little something like this...
i am still trying to figure out what my style is and what colors i like best, but i do know that i gravitate towards neutral with pops of ocean blues and reds, and a bit of orange and mustard yellow mixed in as well.
i will be revealing my stool and tray make overs soon, so stay tuned! what do you think i should do about the black wire crate? paint, no paint... i can't decide!
happy monday loyal readers!
