Hello! Yes this week I was off work Monday and Friday and have bought nothing, I've changed man, nah, haven't really, just trying to be good! I've been thinking about thrifting instead of actually thrifting not quite the same buzz! So today instead of the usual showing off of my thrifty finds I'm going to show you my favourite furniture finds. Nearly all of the furniture in our house is second hand, we picked bits up through the years in charity shops, boot sales and hand me downs, I love the character of a pre-loved item and the history that comes with it. Love it as it is or follow the up-cycling trend. You can be a bit more creative with a piece of furniture you've only paid a tenner for, sand it down give it a lick of paint, cover it in decoupage or simply change the handles and voila your own unique piece of furniture and you've saved yourself a small fortune! With all that money saved it'll be burning a hole in the old pocket....I can think of one way to spend it....
My favourite furniture finds...
|The big lad spotted these drawers in a charity shop, it's vintage nursery furniture|
|My favourite chair, I bought this about 11 years ago|
|My Granny and Granddad's coffee table, I can still see it in their living room, it used to sit under the window, I love this table|
What's your own favourite find? Or how have you up-cycled a vintage piece of furniture?
Have a lovely week everyone!xx
