4 #thriftscorethursday Green Glass Vases

Welcome to #thriftscorethursday friends! Hope your week has treated you well! One of my friends posted a weather screenshot via social media which predicted snow. Thankfully a friend of theirs was pranking them.

Surely it's a wake up call though- because I am NOT ready to bust out the winter boots or the whole scramble-to-get-everything-prepped-for-snow panic attack. Maybe I should get on that...

#thriftscorethursday Week 85 | 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: Nicole from Design it 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 back to Nicole from Design it Vintage! This girl is a thrifting goddess.

Ok, do you fear decorating with big d├ęcor pieces? It’s super intimidating, right?! Unless... it’s free. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll give yourself the freedom to branch out like I did:

This is week three (holy cow!) of all the goodies I scored from a friends estate sale before they donated the rest (click here and here for the previous freebie posts). These green glass vases, let’s just say I knew right away that they would break the habit.

At first glance I wished they were grey or black or white (duh!) but then I channeled my inner Cassie (uhh just look at her latest house tour) with her impeccable taste in greens and blues and decided to add some color in my life.

After un-bubble wrapping them I went straight to Etsy to see what similar ones fetch, and huzzah. If the bubbled one had the topper it could have gone for around $75 (like this pair), not bad for a freebie huh? Although, I’m really not one to care about value though, so it’s staying. They make a pretty vignette on their own, no?

For this weeks features, I have a bit of a theme for you. Presenting some truly inspiring makeovers:

There are close to a bagillion ways a tired worn-out wooden dresser could go. But when you have the right mix of paint, wood, pattern, proportion it equals pure awesomeness. Bravo Reeves!

Not enough brilliance for you? Check out her other geometric furniture makeovers right here.

Vintage desks are cool in their own right, but when you add some pink and gold and that's how little rockstar girls are made! Perhaps Alaya channeled her inner Avril, Pink or Hayley Williams?!

Can we just bow down to Rachel's pure awesomeness?! I mean just look at this before! A drab to fab you don't want to miss!

Oh and isn't it cool how Rachel tossed in the green on green striped flooring in the middle? If it were me, I'd miserably fail and get a little too carried away with black and white patterns…

Well that’s all for week 85, 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.
