6 #thriftscorethursday Ornate Lamp

I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the #thriftscorethursday feed was this past week. Really, you guys find the BEST stuff! Those MCM pieces have me so green with envy as I’ve been on the hunt for a hefty credenza for a month or so now. With a little patience and luck from the thrifting gods, I’m sure the perfect piece will land in my lap.

#thriftscorethursday Week 82 | Trisha from Black and White Obsession, Brynne's from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from A Designer At Home, and Guest Poster: Brittany from White Dog Vintage

If you're new 'round here, my co-hosts Brynne from The Gathered Home, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, and Corinna from A Designer At Home 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 Brittany from White Dog Vintage!

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

Do you remember that repo-storage unit auction that I've referred to a couple times? (here or here)

Well, this beautifully ornate lamp is another one of those storage unit finds. To my surprise, this gem was stashed away in a Rubbermaid packed with peanuts.

The iron base reminds me a bit of the base of a globe that Brynne was gushing about the other week. And the creamy ornate flower detail has me swooning. I have yet to plug it in but really hope the ball glows.

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

#thriftscorethursday champion right here! Can you believe she saran wrapped the bed to the top of her Camry?! That would be a site to see and pure dedication, no?!

You may remember Jess from Domicile37 as she has graciously been a past guest host numerous times. Well this time she wasn't so lucky as she let these brass triangle side tables slip through her fingers. Oh the Horror.

I just can't seem to be more envious of Erica's thrifty purchases lately. Sure there was only one of these door face plates, but you only need one to make a front door blingier (a word now!) than Lil Wayne's front teeth.

Well that’s all for week 82, 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 Fun and Fabulous guest host) dish out our favorite scores every week.

  1. your lamp is beautiful! and i love those features- i missed that bed and it is all sorts of awesome.

    1. Thanks Cassie! I'm really loving a lot of the pieces @kpick89 has been snagging lately. She's in Chicago, I may just have to befriend her!!

  2. I love [your] lamp! You're right - that base is totally reminiscent of my globe, and I really hope the lovely globe part of the lamp glows too! That would be so lovely! I would love to go to a storage unit auction someday, although I don't think I'd be brave enough to bid! :)

    1. It wasn't so bad, a couple friends of mine were the only ones to show up to that particular one. We simply bid at the opening price and they took it right away.

  3. That lamp is just too good to be true. I sure hope it works!

  4. So glad you picked Erica's escutcheon (a word I would never know about without TST, ha!). I almost picked it myself! Thank you so much for inviting me to guest host. I had loads of fun!
