11 #thriftscorethursday Fancy Chairs

Can you believe its OCTOBER already?! Not only is it October (one of the fun months out of the year) but we're also celebrating just over 1,000 entries for #thriftscorethursday!! I'm still pinching myself!!

If you're new 'round here, Brynne from The Gathered Home and our guest poster Ashley from Bigger Than the Three of Us, invite you to hang out with us on Instagram. Simply snap a pic of your thrifted treasure and throw the #thriftscorethursday hashtag so we can all marvel at your goodies.

We shall begin with the features:

I have a soft spot in my heart for before and afters and boy does Jill and Kari's (from You Me and We) makeovers shine. Especially when 1. they're an item of abundance at the thrift store (at least in my area) and 2. the transformation just looks this good!

My heart aches for Katja (from Shift Ctrl Art) as she let these beauties go. At $3.99 they seemed like a pretty great deal. I could see them used for a really pretty gold fall tablescape.

I think Melissa (from A Prudent Life) was thisclose to having these beauties taken before she had a chance.... but good thing she snagged them. They're going to look swell in her entryway!

And we'll close this post off with my finds:

I actually scored these fancy chairs about three years ago (hence the 3-year ago photography) during the last day of a town-wide yard sale. They were $6 for all six chairs (mega steal right?!), I could hardly pay them quick enough.

At the time, I had a mid-size sedan and we some how managed to shove all six of them in the front seat, the back seats and in the trunk with the use of a little rope. I was driving with the biggest grin on my way home. It was quite the sight to see.

My favorite part about these guys are the details:

Back then, I wanted to paint the wood white and update the upholstery, but now I'm thinking I want to sand them down and stain them. I still want to put a bold fabric on the cushion area, I'm just not sure what stain we'll go with. Of course they're in storage now and we don't have a specific place for them planned in our house so I'm sure we'll have different ideas for them until we tackle the project.

Well that’s all for week 35, my dearies! We thoroughly enjoy scrolling through your entries every week and hope to see your thrifted treasures. It’s pretty easy to play along:
  1. Snap a photo of something that catches your eye or you decided to splurge on from anyplace secondhand (Craigslist, Thrift Stores, Auctions etc). 
  2.  Share your photo with the hashtag #thriftscorethursday on Instagram (if your profile is public) and/or Twitter, any day of the week! 
*You could be featured next Thursday as your hosts Brynne and I (+a third surprise guest host) dish out our favorite scores every week.
