It’s Frugal Friday: A Thrifting Showcase

Posted on by Milla Posted in Furniture, Inspiration, Thrift Shopping | Leave a comment

The past two days we’ve browsed local thrift stores and took pictures of some items that we came across. Much like a local Craigslist feature post It’s Frugal Friday will showcase thrifty finds that we may or may have not purchased. Items that were purchased may show up in future Before & After posts. Yay!  And since we don’t want to become hoarders, items that we like but have no use  for remained at the stores. So maybe if you live locally or not too far you can pick them up.

The Real Deal in Teal?

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Furniture, Inspiration, Thrift Shopping | 1 Comment

A couple of months ago, I decided to make a change to my bedroom. And that change began with buying a dresser. I hadn’t even owned a dresser for the past two years given that I’ve been living out of an organizational system in my closet (thanks Ikea) but I wanted one anyway. There were a few rules I had to follow while on my search for the perfect dresser.

1. It had to be  tall
2. It had to have vintage details
3. It had to be less than $50
3. And most importantly it had to be small

Why did it have to be small, you ask? I hate to tell you this but my room is a box, 10′x10′ to be exact and that’s on a good day. The sacrifices you make when you insist on being a good twin sister.

After searching Craigslist and hitting up a few thrift stores I finally found what I was looking for at an Estate Liquidation. It was tall, had a vintage feel, $50, and small. Check her out below after some stripping and a good sanding.

Samaya’s Big Girl Room

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Client Projects, Kids Room Inspiration, Thrift Shopping | 7 Comments

A few months ago, a childhood friend of ours asked if we could decorate her two year old daughter’s bedroom. Of course we said sure yes! We knew that she would be moving into a new apartment and that we’d be starting from scratch.  After the phone call, we headed ran to the thrift store. And boy, did we really hit the jackpot that day; scoring a dresser, headboard, and footboard all in the same trip.

Samaya’s room began with just a mattress and box spring so it needed many pieces to furnish and decorate the room. We had to tap into our creativity to stay under budget while creating a sophisticated bedroom that she could grow up with. That means thrifting, thrifting, and more thrifting!

So without further ado…
