My Thrifty Threesome

Three thrift store finds that I'm still excited about!


Found in natural wood with ornamental doors, this $75 TV cabinet got a major makeover and has been around since 2001, in four different homes.



Then a large Knoll tulip table with a marble top for $10 from a liquidation sale of a storage unit (someone had fallen short on the rent). See the mini version in the background?


And thirdly, an $8 storage bench. All it needed was a paint touch up!

I can't believe you scored a tulip table for 10! Lucky duck!

Those are all great finds & I just adore your coastal home. Gorgeous!! I saw a bench almost identical to yours this weekend, but of course I have no room for it.

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

These are wonderful finds!

Have you seen Barbara Jacksier's new book Waterside Cottages? I have a note about it, at the Back Porch. I think you might enjoy this beautiful book. I'm already making plans to "borrow" a few ideas.

A Knoll Marble top for $10??? That wouldn't even cover tax on a new one! You go girl!

Tarva said...

Love the table. I could use that in my house. I also have a TV cabinet that I have had for 10 years that I am thinking about painting. I think you have just convinced.

Where ever did you find that beautiful sailboat on top of your white cabinet in the photos???? I'm just redecorating in a coastal cottage style, and am getting ready to purchase some decorative oars, as well! :)
I just bought a small one at Pottery Barn, but also want large ones like those you've propped in the corner. Stunning! Thanks for the ideas!
