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! 🙂
