I really enjoy going to thrift stores. I find all kinds of cool stuff at great prices. One of my favorite things to look for at thrift stores is furniture pieces that just need a little TLC to bring them back to their former glory.
This piece was ok but was just blah. I saw so much potential and just loved the shape. I thought it would be fun to paint it and use it at my son’s Rehearsal dinner. I forgot to take a picture before I started painting, but here it is just after I sanded it and began the first coat of paint. Not very nice yet…
I also bought a desk at a thrift store and painted it the same day as the other piece:
I gave each piece three coats of paint. I added pink antique glass drawer pulls to both. The glass sliding doors on the china cabinet are original. The desk was only $3.98 at the thrift store! I really like how they turned out and now I’m trying to decide which room of the house I should put it in.
What do you think?
They both looked great at the wedding rehearsal dinner; they added a lot and were fun to decorate!
Can’t wait to visit the thrift store again! 🙂
