I know you have been just waiting inpatiently to see what this $2.00 piece of furniture was that I brought home from Value Village 2 weeks ago.
Well, wait no longer. It’s a bench!
I know it definitely doesn’t look like much now… but I don’t see the above picture when I look at it. I see the wood painted a soft white or a soft color and distressed and the top part recovered with some more batting and some fun fabric.
Like this… (found here)
It could even serve as an ottoman. I can’t wait to get started on it! And for $2.00 for a solid piece of wood furniture that will be a simple redo, I couldn’t pass it up.
I stopped in Goodwill – the better one in my town – and found this wood J for $0.99. Hoping to incorporate it into a wreath.
Later that week I stopped at another local thrift store. It is one of those dirty, sort of dig through things kind of store but I can find some great deals in there. The game was $1.00
The wreaths were 50¢ each.
And the glass pumpkin was $1.00. Got something fun planned for it which you will see in a later post.
And I found another piece of furniture! This French provincial nightstand was $12. Again, couldn’t believe the price. I LOVE this style of furniture – have already redone 2 dressers like this that I use for entryway/console/storage. My entryway dresser redo post is here and my hallway dresser post is here.
I was actually looking for 2 nightstands – 1 for the guest room, and 1 more for the master bedroom. And I want them to mix and match. This one was too big for the guest room so it will go in the master bedroom. I may try to salvage the top and stain it and then paint the bottom. Just have to see if it looks good enough to stain.
So there’s my finds from 2 weeks ago! Not often that I find furniture those kinds of prices and to find two in one week was pretty amazing too!
Here’s some of your frugal finds from 2 weeks ago:
The Creative me and McG found all of this for $1.50 at a yard sale. Loving that vintage bedsheet!
Jennifer from Decorated Chaos found some new lampshades at the thrift store a few weeks ago and then found a lamp too! Total for lamp and lampshade – $8.50. Love her decorated foyer table too.
Marlin from Life between Potato and Rice found this bamboo coffee table (with the glass) for $20 at a thrift store. Can’t wait to see what she does with it.
