Wednesday's Cheap and Chic

I popped into Old Time Pottery the other day, and once again, it didn't disappoint!  I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but I found a Greek key doormat for my front door for $9.99!  I love that it adds a touch of Hollywood Regency style to my front porch.


Then, it was time to drop off some clothes at Goodwill, so I ran in to see if they had any good furniture to show you.  Of course they did! 

I think sometimes it is hard to visualize thrift store pieces in a pretty room, so I've included some inspiring examples of how I would use these thrift store pieces.

Someone beat me to this set of hot pink lacquered French chairs with green leather upholstery.  You don't want to know the price.  $19.99 for all of them.  Seriously.

You could keep them and use them in an all-white room, or re-do them.

These nesting parsons end tables would be adorable lacquered white (or a color!).  Or upholstered with fun nailhead trim. 

Something along these lines:

Brass lamps galore.  The large ginger jar style was my favorite.  Just add a black shade!


Use it like Eddie Ross did here.

I have a weakness for bargello.  This hot pink bargello piece is horribly framed but could be totally adorable in the right frame or on a pillow.

I would frame it with a white mat like Phoebe Howard did here for Coastal Living.

And lastly, there is something fabulously chinoiserie about this large bird print (it was REALLY big).

Okay, so let's be honest, maybe the print isn't quite as fabulous as de Gournay.  But I still like it!

Have you found anything good at Goodwill lately?

I love the idea of framing bargello. They look great in a gallery wall!

Such great finds! I always go on scouting trips when I'm outside DC, just to marvel at the wonderful finds. Unfortunately, DC is so picked over, the local Goodwills are for the most part not checking out. Jealous!
