Last night, I indulged in what has become a favorite past time - a trip to Goodwill! Visits are pretty much hit or miss, but I struck gold last night. I'd been looking for some wicker and huzzah - two chairs for the bargain price of $20 (plus the entire store was 15% off). I made two trips to the car (they are light but very awkward to carry) and home they went.
Where, oh where, should these lovelies live? I thought for a few about the patio but alas - I settled on the perfectly practical solution - and now my dining table seats six.
Everything came together perfectly. The neutral wicker, the neutral seats, with the lovely espresso finished wood and fun table runner I got at Marshall's. Dinner party perfection!
This is just a baby step in the direction of total living and dining room area transformation. Til then, let me express - do not underestimate the awesomeness that can be discovered at the thrift store. Here's a quick look at some of my favorite home pieces that hail from there:
Nightstand/End Table: $10
Suitcase Table (solid wood): $35
Henredon Buffet/Sideboard: A steal at $45
Henredon pieces like this are going for $1,000+ these days
And many more! Lots of Hidden Potential projects to come thanks to my local Salvation Army. Hope you are excited :)
