9 #thriftscorethursday Retro Lamp

Hey guys, did you miss me last week? It has been an interesting last couple of weeks of summer here that’s for sure. Hope you had a killer summer!

#thriftscorethursday Week 81 | 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: Emily from The Wicker House

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 Emily from The Wicker House! You simply must check out the wicker she has in her entryway, the round bag is def my favorite!

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

I’m not sure you’ll believe me that I scored this really cool retro lamp for free. Yes, free.

You see one random, late Saturday afternoon, I spotted a family estate sale sign and feared I wouldn’t make it in time. To my surprise, they were packing up and invited us to pick through anyway. We zoomed through and purchased a few goodies. After checking out she said, you know, you would save us a lot of time and effort if you wanted to give it one more look-through and take anything you want, on us.

Happily obliging, I went through one more time and grabbed a few things. Then I spotted the lamp in a sad corner without a price tag, and immediately asked if it was up for grabs. She said "You becha."

I could hardly contain myself. I mean look at these angles. I’m sure in its previous life, it was more of a sandy color with some peachy accents but someone [successfully] updated it with some glossy black. Definitely so much better.

It needs a little wiring work and a lamp stem, but nothing a couple bucks can’t fix. I cannot wait to slap this puppy in my new living room.

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

These abstract Wooden Placemats definitely stopped me in my tracks as I was scrolling through my feed. Aren't they delicious?!

Julia is my style icon. She is an expert on layering black and white, classic pieces, and throwing in something unexpected. #gushing

At any rate, this Settee. The color, the fabric, the lines, oh my!

You all know I'm a huge fan of anything from Jenn, and her latest #thriftscorethursday does not disappoint! I love how every piece brings interest and unique character without overwhelming the frame. I could stare at it for hours.

The way she styles her photos draws me in every time. Wouldn’t it this photo look lovely on a gallery wall? And since we’re already off-topic, don't you just want to pet that floor?

Well that’s all for week 81, 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.
