4 #thriftscorethursday Desk with Boomerang Copper Drawer Pulls

Woot woot, in case you haven’t been properly introduced, welcome to Thursday!! It just so happens to be favorite days of the week because it’s time for #thriftscorethursday!! And boy do I have the Score this week… Hint: it involves Boomerang Copper Drawer Pulls- you know if you couldn’t tell from the title.

New ‘round these areas?! Well my friends, my incredible co-hosts Brynne from The Gathered Home, Megan from Rental Revival, and I get together every week and drool all over YOUR dreamy Thrifty Submissions #thriftscorethursday on Instagram and/or #thriftscorethursday on Twitter.  We mingle, heart/favorite and chat up what you’ve found recently at your favorite second hand store/location. We then come back here and show off our favorites (which totally could be yours!!).

My favorite pieces this week are:
#thriftscorethursday Week 12 Features | Instagram user: brightgreendoor shows off this vintage card catalog.

Jess from Bright Green Door was all over this vintage card catalog while on vaca in Sarasota. I mean just look at that marble top- swanky!! Sadly she had to pass for lack of luggage space- arge don’t you HATE when that happens?! She definitely scores mega points for thrifting on vacation!!

Check out her other amazing finds-- including a rad old bull skull and some pricey portholes among other drool-tastic things on her vacation salvage shop recap.

#thriftscorethursday Week 12 Features | Instagram user: sandpaperglue shows off this Antique Fairbanks Platform Scale
Heart her photo or give her a follow here.

Stephanie from Sand Paper and Glue inherited an Antique Fairbanks Platform Scale from her father-in-law. Seriously, I’m entirely envious, especially since it was (probably?) free. Seems to be quite a bit older than the baby scale I spotted a couple weeks back. Oh and an Instagram Bonus: @markchera’s shares super helpful tips on sprucing up vintage iron pieces (in the comments on the photo). Gotta love those invaluable tips!! From the looks of it, the scale looks like it will fit in quite well amongst other vintage pieces like that change jug you can spot in the background.

And let’s get chit-chatty about my #thriftscorethursday find:

Heart the photo here.

It was reeeeeally hard leaving this piece behind (seems to be a common theme ‘round here). But I just couldn’t justify the fact that I only wanted the piece for those, what I like to call, Boomerang Copper Drawer Pulls! I mean don’t get me wrong the desk was lovely and all, but it was already (halfheartedly) painted and the drawers were of the old school wooden variety, the kind that you had to yank open with a pry bar.

Let’s get back to those copper pulls.

Heart the photo here.

You see I was never really a fan of copper/gold stuff until I met and fell in BFF love with Brynne and Megan (and coincidentally my cohosts). They’re the stylish ones that have been drooling all over the mixed metals pieces forever. Anywho, they totally reminded me of our Kitchen Hardware, and it would have been the perfect opportunity to add a little mixed metal love into our lives. However, the desk was set at $45, and according to my other friends- Ebay and Etsy, I shouldn’t be paying that, secondhand, just for a 9-piece set.

Well that’s all for week 12, my dearies! Please tell me you’ll follow along with us?! It’s crazy easy to play along my friends:
  1. Snap a photo of something that catches your eye or you decided to splurge on from anyplace secondhand (Craigslist, Thrift Stores, Auctions, Yard Sales, etc).
  2. Share your photo with the hashtag #thriftscorethursday on Instagram (if your profile is public) and/or Twitter, any day of the week!
Here’s where I turn the mic over to you, what have you been eyeing up at auctions and yard sales this season?!

  1. YAY! Copper love! Those handles are awesome. Too bad the desk wasn't cheap enough to make it worth it to buy for the hardware alone - those ones on Etsy are SEXY though... Trying to think of a way to use them in my house now...

    1. I know right?! Maybe if they were having a 50% off furniture sale or something... ah well win some, lose some right?!

      And.. uh oh, Brynne's on a mission HA!

  2. thanks for the feature! the scale was free- woo hoo! hopefully this weekend I'll get to shining it up to its' former glory.
    fun fact: the change is totalllyyyy in an empty $10 jug o' wine. HOWEVER, I do have it placed next to a much bigger jug my great grandpa used to make his own wine so I'm going to go ahead and assume that balances it out. lol

    1. Thanks for showing off your amazing scale and popping in with those fun facts! I think the new placement is even better since both pieces tie back to the family. A small area to remember some amazing people! I'm sure the vignette will look lovely!
