Thrift Store Score: Vintage Seaside Artwork

Happy Monday! Quick question for you: have you watched this video on my YouTube channel yet? It’s the one where I take you room by room through our house talking through all of our very favorite secondhand furniture finds. In keeping with the tradition set by my #ThriftStoreScore series here on the blog (the first…

Thrift Store Score: Round Coffee Table

Ever since adding a sectional to our family room, I’ve had my heart set on a round coffee table. I just felt like something round would suit the L-shaped couch so much better than a rectangular one because we could scoot around it easier when we wanted to have a seat on the sectional. The…

Thrift Store Score: A Mid-Century Ceramic Lamp

While I love to pull design inspiration from books, magazines, movies, HGTV shows, and (of course!) other blogs, I can’t stand the idea that our house might look exactly like those inspiration rooms. I want to make sure my own iteration of those ideas is unique and one-of-a-kind, that it doesn’t feel like an exact…

Thrift Store Score: A Retro Barometer

The thing that first caught my eye about this cool retro barometer was the look, not so much the function. But after getting the little metal, glass, and leather device home from the antique store it occurred to me that maybe it was worth the effort to try to figure out what, exactly, a barometer…

Thrift Store Score: Retro Light-Up Table

MAN, it’s bothering me now in retrospect that the piece of art looks like it’s sitting right on top of that table lamp. Oh, well. Live and learn! And since I just pointed out a major flaw in my work that you might not have noticed had I just kept my mouth shut, let me…

Thrift Store Score: Wooden Candlestick Holders

Okay, guys. I’m going to let my craziness show here in a second, but I figured it was only fair that I demonstrate just how OCD I am about home decor—and, really, about everything in life. Late last year, I bought this pair of vintage wooden candleholders from one of our favorite antique stores here…

Thrift Store Score: Vintage Handmade Pottery

These days catharses comes in the form of finding that “needle in a haystack” type of thrift store find. The rush from spotting the perfect piece is my kind of mental refresh, and since I’ve been cutting back on antique hunts as of late because I’m trying to keep more money in the bank and…

Thrift Store Score: A Boho Stool

Sorry for all of the quick posts around these parts lately, guys. Like the rest of the world, I’m attempting to slow down a little bit since this is summertime, after all, plus I’m keeping my head way down as I focus on bringing a few big ideas to life (including FINALLY launching a newsletter,…

Thrift Store Score: $20 Oriental Rug

I recently realized that I haven’t shared a Thrift Store Score story with you guys in a long time, so I spent about 20 minutes earlier this month wandering through our home photographing the latest secondhand treasures that have made their way into our possession. First up? This beautiful oriental rug that I actually caught…

Thrift Store Score: Vintage Landscape Paintings

You know what’s sad? I’m so ram-rod focused on styling perfection, that I just got lost in a rabbit hole of hunting for the perfect “mid-century digital clock” to replace the cheap Target one you see pictured above. It’s embarrassing how desperate I get to replace things that are perfectly functional yet imperfectly designed. I just thought I’d…
