6 #thriftscorethursday Umbrella Stand

Hello my friends! Happy fridayeve! Hope you have some fun plans this weekend! The leaves are just beginning to change and the mornings are getting chillier up here in the north. Not sure how to feel about that but considering it’s the first day of October, how fair would it be to complain?!

#thriftscorethursday Week 83 | 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: Bre from Brepurposed

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 Bre from Brepurposed!

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

I had to part ways with my last make-shift umbrella stand (which was actually a large deep blue slightly opaque vase) recently. Within a week this tall and slender piece practically fell in my lap. It was one of those, “pick anything you want before we sell it, if it doesn’t sell its all yours” all kinda deals. Never been to one? Well get friends that know dig freebies then!

I’ve recently redecorated and went back to my one true love: black and white, with simple splashes of color for spice, but I’m not quite sure the green/blue will go well. And since my favorite thing to do is dream up fun things to do with them (and hardly follow through), I’m thinking *gasp* white with black words similar to this.

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

I can't even. The color. The shape. That black frame. ANND it has a TWIN?! Hot dang, Dena, you're my hero!

I just HAD to pick these chairs Sarah posted mostly because I, too, have a thrifted three some (you can see my unpainted versions here) and have yet to add a little sumthin' somethin' to their plain look.

Back to Sarah's chairs, how about that bright green?! Sarah isn't a fan and plans on giving them a whole new look. Here's to hoping she'll post an "after"! (aka hop on the instagram train and beg for an after)


Well that’s all for week 83, 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.

Thank you for stopping by today, hope you enjoy(ed) the Instagram Party this week!
