On Saturday I went thrifting. I keep seeing amazing furniture finds on other blogs and I've been frustrated by what we're finding - or not finding - at regular furniture stores, not to mention the outrageous prices. So I thought I would give thrifting a try.
First I made my list of what I was looking for:
- mirror for the bathroom project
- entry way table
- end tables
- tall dresser
Then I made my route of places to check out for Saturday. This included about 5 different places, located all around Denver. I checked out everything from an estate sale, goodwill, and some furniture consignment shops.
And here's what I found -
Small server with fold out top for $100 at consignment shop (S actually gets credit for this find)
Long dresser at different consignment shop for $150
And guess what I came home with?
4 books from goodwill, and two gold artichoke candle holders that I will be painting white.
Lesson learned: Thrifting is hard work, and not good for the girl who is incredibly indecisive.
