7 #thriftscorethursday Wicker Plant Stand

Welcome back to #thriftscorethursday! Collectively our Thrift Score Thursday Hosts took the week of last week to enjoy a bit of summer. Although most of us were still thrifting behind the scenes because we’re nothing but a bunch of addicts.

#thriftscorethursday Week 74 | 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: Paula from Virgina Sweet Pea

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.

Occasionally, we're blessed to have a few of our favorite hashtag blogger friends guest hosting alongside us. This week, please give a warm welcome back: Paula from Virgina Sweet Pea!

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

One Thursday afternoon, during my lunch hour, I was heading to the grocery store for a bite to eat when I spied a promising yard sale (addict right here, I tell ya!). There were a lot of fun pieces like chairs, mirrors, and vintage trinkets. It was hard not to walk away with more but thankfully I was in my tiny car. PS the plant stand came with this fake plant that I'm on the fence about:

Pretty sure I got more than a few looks from the neighbors moving stuff around so the planter would fit juuuust right. All in the name of thrifting.

When I rounded the layout, I spied the wicker beauty and immediately thought this guy would be right up Corinna’s alley (with her wicker basket as a plant holder).

Sure the pots I have right now don’t quite fit, but I haven’t figured out which one of our house plant is worthy of such beauty any how.

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

Speaking of wicker-ish, I cannot begin to tell you how envious I am that Karen was able to snag those Bentwood Rattan Bamboo Chairs for a killer deal; 2 for $10.

Have you ever seen a knob-less dresser look so sleek?! And one of these day's I'm going to slather that green somewhere in my home. I'm sure there's tons of people who discovered this already, but isn't it genius to use a dresser in an entryway? One of the commenters said she uses her dresser to stash hats, gloves, and games (outdoor games would be perfect for those grab-and-go situations).

Nicole's perfection game is quite a bit different than the one I remember playing with so naturally, I was curious to see what version she was able to snag. After a quick google search it's from the 90's. Of course that initial search lead to spotting this completely different layout from the 1960s, how cool!!

Well that’s all for week 74, 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.

Now tell me, what have you thrift-scored lately?!

  1. Your plant stand was a great find! I loved playing Perfection when I was a kid and bet that my mom still has mine stashed away somewhere. I think that mine had a dial that was turned.

  2. I LOVE IT. naturally ;) it looks like it's in great shape, too!

  3. awesome features and i love that plant stand you found! so great!

  4. Yep, you're totally channeling Corinna with that plant stand! I love it! I am all for fake plants, btw, as long as they're convincing! I'm trying to bring more greenery into the house, but it needs to be of the fake variety both because I kill EVERYTHING and because otherwise my cats just view it as a snack, lol!

  5. What a great wicker plant stand to highlight your favorite plant. I definitely need more plants in my room. :]
