Around the House Thrifting- Final Edition

I've already blogged about many of my thrifting highlights that I have incorporated into my home, here and here.  Here is the final round-up.

I scored this linen waterfall table for $18.  It looks very similar to a Jean-Michel Frank piece.  I don't know if it really is one of his or not, but regardless, I love the smooth, clean lines of this table.  I have it in our downstairs den (formerly the man cave, now becoming the play room; I guess that's what happens when the beer fridge now holds sippy cups and juice) behind the ginormous (not-so-pretty-but-durable-and-comfy) leather sofa. 

Another one of my favorite finds is this lounger and ottoman.  It's not a real deal Eames, but it was made in Massachusetts and the quality is amazing.  Did I mention how comfortable it is?  I see why people love these so much.  (excuse my mid-project sewing mess in the background).

Thrift stores are a great place to find art to fill up a gallery wall.  Nearly all of the pieces on this wall are from thrift stores.  Some I have re-framed, and some I haven't.  

Camel saddles are trendy now, but you can sometimes spot them in thrift stores.  They make a great footstool  (or time-out stool for misbehaving toddlers...)

I found this lucite box etched with a tree and flowers a couple years ago.  It sits atop my dresser and holds some costume broaches.

And finally, I use this carved wooden box with an inlaid brass elephant in my little man's room to hold his baby hospital bracelet and little hat.  It holds such special memories of our first days with him- I will keep it forever!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing thrift store finds in my home.  Admittedly I haven't spent any time styling this last group of finds- my free moments are far and few between with two little ones!

The Eames style chair is a major score. My daughter and I tried one out at a high-end gallery recently. I thought she was going to cry she loved it so much but $4000 was a bit out of budget.

Great series--I so enjoyed it and am sad it's over. I guess we'll have to buy more stuff this weekend so you can most more on your finds :)

I could certainly go for another great chair in my home.

You will DIE-- guess what was rolling out of the Habitat on Wendover on Tuesday... literally a minute before I walked in the door (after making a wrong turn and loosing 5 minutes!)....a freakin' triple-front Draper chest. I actually started crying when the girl who bought it loaded it into her car. Mortifying, but true. There really is nothing you can't find at a thrift store!!

Melissa- I cannot believe that. That is seriously what I DREAM about. Did you offer to buy it from her on the spot?!

Great finds!! I also found that exact Eames knock off lounger at a thrift store - I was surprised at how comfortable it is too!! and it does not take up much space. If you have a sec, here's a link to see it in my living room.
