Thriftaholic

Hi. My name is Erika and I have a problem. I am becoming a thriftaholic. Thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets you name it, I am hooked. But that’s ok because I am finding some great goodies and saving us a ton on furniture for our house. Here is a little preview of some of my finds-

I got this beautiful desk at a garage sale for $15. I think I am going to strip it and stain it to match the office. I’m thinking Minwax Jacobean, nice and dark to match the old world map that is going in there.

I probably overpaid for this shelf a little bit. But it has great curves and the green was so pretty. It is.going to be a tv stand in the sitting room off of our bedroom.

And I got this love seat for $40 at reTAIL, a thrift store that funds an animal shelter. Funny story- I got super paranoid about the  possibility of bed bugs so I left it.in the garage and didn’t know what to do. Well while I am out there cleaning it up and convincing myself that it probably has invisible bed bugs and kind of freaking out, our new friend Joe stops in with his wife. I had no idea, but Joe does pest control for a living! God send! So he checked out our couch for us and said it was a-ok! Thanks Joe!

I’ll share more goodies later. Right now we are headed to the Riverdogs game. I won free front row tickets. Woot! “Take me out to the ball game!”

I'd love to know you were here! Leave a comment!
