A few Saturdays ago, I had a lot to do and just wasn’t all that inspired to head out “thrifting” at some of my favorite Saturday spots. BUT, I had to run out to do an errand or two so decided to stop anyways. It seems like the days you don’t really plan on going or finding anything great is the day you find a ton of treasures!!
First I stopped at the flea market. There was a booth that they were cleaning out and I spied these old window panes. I asked if I could have them and they said “Sure, we were just going to haul them out to the trash!”
They had been out in the weather, so I will have to see once I get them cleaned up if they all will be salvageable or not, but for FREE, I will take them!
Then I also happened upon this chandelier. I bargained the seller down from $10 to $7 and I hope that it will become my new kitchen light (to replace a horrible fluorescent light!) And bonus, it is already a nice brown/bronze color so I save myself a step in painting it ORB (oil-rubbed bronze).
When I set out not-really-shopping, I had already decided IF I found anything, I wanted to find things in my new favorite color – WHITE!! :)
I have been obsessed with all thing white recently. I don’t know if it is because white looks good with pretty much any other color, or it is perfect for spring, or what… but I love white accessories!
All of the things below cost $6.00. I already showed you what I did with the 50¢ white plate.
I love these little white containers! Left to right, I paid - $2.50, 50¢, 75¢, 75¢. You can see what I am using the pedestal white bowl for in this post.
And the other white containers, you can see in various places all throughout my house looking something like this…
Did I mention I love pairing white with green? :)
What is your new favorite color or your favorite color to use in accessories in your home?
