5 #thriftscorethursday Modern Bentwood Dining Chairs

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve had a marvelous week! I just wanted to take a moment and give each and every one of you a big ‘ol virtual hug. The #thriftscorethursday hosts and I just cannot thank you enough for popping in and playing along to our quirky little hashtag party.

#thriftscorethursday Week 76 | 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: Claire from Claire Brody Designs

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 to Claire from Claire Brody Designs (psst you should check out her DIY'ed horse head lamp)!

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

Remember when I said I won a repo-storage unit auction? (you can click here to catch the latest score.) Well, we attended that same auction with a friend and we both won separate units. While helping each other load up and take it all away, our friend set these Bentwood beauties aside in the “maybe pile.” He ultimately decided he had no use for them and had been eyeing up a couple goodies we scored. At the end of the day we had a mini-free for all on the maybe piles. I can’t quite remember what we traded them for (probably something rusty/vintage that fits his style better than mine). I obvs got the better end of that deal.

Some of you who have stuck around these parts for a while may remember a glimpse of them back when I met YHL. Like many of my treasures, these guys have been buried for a couple years-- mostly because they need a few screws in the legs and a quick furniture polish wipe-down. Another (totally valid hoarder) excuse is that I’ve dreamed of giving them a little extra ‘sumthin 'sumthin. In the past I wanted to paint them completely (similar to this one from West Elm), but now I’m leaning more toward letting most of the wood peek through. Or adding a splash of black and white triangles. Only in the world of finished projects and rainbow-colored-unicorns.

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

Hot dang, don't you just want to lounge on this antique wooden beauty that Karen (who says it's mighty comfy) found with a good book and a pina colada?

Erica got her lucky little paws on this lovely Rattan Breakfast Tray. Wouldn't you stiff arm your way out of the thrift store with this wicker beast? I know I would. Anything for a little breakfast in bed folks.

Nicole, who also happens to be a reoccurring guest host, is definitely one of my thrifting heroes. Not only can she score the best chairs in the history of best chairs, but now she's getting her hands on inexpensive MCM tables. Can you believe she was able to score this bad boy for a big 'ol $8?! Those legs...

Well that’s all for week 76, 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.

Here's where we turn the tables on you, what have you scored lately?

  1. love your chairs and i love that tray feature! i missed it- so cool!

  2. Sweet chairs! I don't think you could go wrong with them. Vinyl would be fun. That way you could change your mind :)

  3. Love your chairs!! Thanks for having me, this has been so much fun!

  4. Love the idea of black and white triangles - that is so you! I think it could also be cool to do a bright color (turquoise?) along the edges of the bentwood... Can't wait to see what you end up with!
