12 #thriftscorethursday Craigslist Wish List

Welcome to #thriftscorethursday where my co-hosts and I hope you're as cuckoo over thrifted treasures as we are.
#thriftscorethursday Week 62 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from For My Love Of, and Guest Poster: CoCo from The Crowned Goat

If you're new 'round here, my co-hosts Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from For My Love Of and I, invite you to play along with our fun hashtag party on Instagram. The rules are simple: snap a pic of your thrifted treasure and throw the #thriftscorethursday hashtag so our hosts, followers, and amazing TST community can marvel at your goodies.

This week we're blessed to have CoCo from The Crowned Goat as our guest host! You see CoCo has been hashtagging along with us practically from the start and I've been oogling over her finds all along (like this artsy easel). I KNOW you'll fall in love with her spectacular feed, so get on over there and show her Instagram feed some lovin'!

Let’s kick this party off with my find, to which I have a little pre-story for you…

I had full intentions on sharing an old thrifted find that's been sitting in storage for far too long (perhaps giving it some limelight will push me to WORK on the piece) but I was in a hurry the day I snapped a couple photos. Of course only AFTER getting home and uploading the pictures did I noticed not-one-clear-shot. The photos resembled what would happen if a hyper kid held my camera hostage and took pictures during an earthquake on a moving train.

So instead, and after a minor panic attack, I made a spur of the moment decision. Since it's my birthday tomorrow, I thought it'd be fun to share with you pieces I'm really hoping to score this weekend (as a selfie b-day gift) on Craigslist. Who knows maybe the sellers will be kind and I’ll be able to splurge on a new office…

First up is this absolutely perfect mid-century modern desk:

Oh how I’d love to give this piece an update with a two toned painted makeover (perhaps mint and white and wood tone for good measure) and polish that hardware back to its former glory. I’d be in office heaven. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!!!

And the second piece is this luxe office chair:

I spied one of these elegantly modern chairs at Office Max AND a similar one at Staples years ago (and I think the OM one is still available here), and immediately fell in love. Hard. Now that there’s one on Craigslist for a steep discount… someone may need to hold me back.

The only hang-up is that the white leather is accented with chrome, and I'm the WORST at mixing metals (the mid century piece seems to have brassy knobs.

*photo cred for both finds goes to the craigslist posters.

And now for the dreamy features from our #thriftscorethursday Instagram crowd:

Ok, I'm seriously green with envy. Some day the Thrifting Gods will bless me with the best of the best baking canisters. In the mean time, I'll be oogling Tracy's glorious teal canisters.

Could this retro flamingo bar set be any cuter? I was totally unaware that the ice bucket can come with matching tumblers until now. #learnsomethingneweveryday thanks for sharing Kim!

I could sort of tell from those legs that these guys were luggage racks in their previous life... either way Kara did a bang-up job on these beauts. Those dipped toes had me at hello!

And what vintage/thrift store shopping spree would be complete without a perfectly woven tote bag?! Erica was spot-on scooping this guy up at her area Savers. Next time I'm in a state with a Savers you bet I'll be popping in!!

Well that’s all for week 62, 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, Garage 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!
*You could be featured next Thursday as your hosts Brynne, Cassie, Corinna, and I (+a surprise guest host) dish out our favorite scores every week.

So do you think I should take my chances and modern-ize my office?! Have you ever found some mis-matched pieces that go together so well?
