3 #thriftscorethursday Garden Stool

Holy Cowabunga dude, has it really been 90 weeks of thrifting goodness?! Thank you, thank you for sharing our passion for resurrecting sad and tired pieces.

#thriftscorethursday Week 90 | 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: Tiffany from My Eclectic Nest

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 Tiffany from My Eclectic Nest!

Let’s kick this party off with my find:

So you know how Garden Stools fetch a hefty $100+ brand new? Well this simple beauty was another freebie from a friends families estate sale leftovers (yes, the same one I've been going on about for the past few #thriftscorethursdays).

Sure the garden stool has a few bumps and bruises and may not have been quite the color I would have picked-- nothing a little spray paint couldn't fix. If you didn't pick up that ultra subtle hint, this garden stool is actually a finished project update (for once!). Of course late sunrises and early nights with a bonus rainy few days (beats snow- no complaints here!) have ruined any chance of snagging a proper after.

So if you blur and squint your eyes, then imagine the perfect shade of mint- it'll give you an idea of how the garden stool turned out. Fingers crossed I can snag a shot for you guys over on Instagram this weekend!

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

In my area, we have stacks of wooden and brassy horse head bookends (equally beautiful, no?) that are begging for a good home. It definitely made me giddy to see a slightly different take on the traditional bookends when I saw this one from Instagram user: mariaski63.

Tracy found a pair of these regal Marsala colored velvet chairs. They would go so well in a dual home office, or really one of those swanky home libraries. You know, the ones that require expensive cigars and vintage tobacco pipes.

This year, admittedly, I'm trying to ease into the Christmas. It's a wonderful time of year, but it can get overwhelming quickly. That's exactly why I was really excited to see Turena's, simple, yet super adorable Elf shoes in the #thriftscorethursday feed. Wouldn't it be perfect as a mini-tree base?

One last thing before I let you go, we're collectively taking off next week for Thanksgiving, but if you score any fun pieces while you were out and about, feel free to tag away. We'll continue to drool and comment over on Instagram.

Well that’s all for week 90, 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.
