Went thrift shopping with my husband in tow recently, a very bad idea as he "hates all this old shit" as he so charmingly puts it.
He rushed me through the thrift shops but I did manage to grab this divine stool for $2. White, chippy paint with a roses tapestry seat.
The stack of books are old car manuals that my dad gave me to sell on ebay for him. I have more than enough of my own to sell at the moment. We want to put our place on the market so I need to sell all the things I am not in love with anymore in preparation for a house move.
I also bought this huge tray from the 1950's with lovely ballerina decorations.
It is currently on the bottom shelf of this ikea coffee table holding all the remotes and xbox accessories.
I just HAD to paint this coffee table white. It has inserts where you can display things under glass. At the moment I have put in old plates, sea shells, fairy stones and old photos. Even ikea can be made vintage chic!
