Hello beautiful friends!!
Today I’m sharing my new haul and ya’ll, this is the BIGGEST thrifty haul of them all! I have been cleaning, reorganizing, and shopping and I have lots to share! Some I pulled from the depths of my storage room, some were still hanging around the garage, and I treated myself to several leisurely thrifting stops as well!
I cannot wait to get started!!
Let’s dive in!
Here is everything in this huge haul:
I didn’t even organize it in a pretty manner this time for the photos because there was so much, but let’s see what is in this pile, shall we?
I’ll start with several things I still had in my storage room.
First up is this metal wall art that I picked up at a yard sale several years ago for $5:
Talk about a steal! I actually bought a set of three of them. I painted one to hang in our old house; I gave one to my old neighbor; and this is the final one that has just been hanging around taking up space!
This next item was also one of three that I purchased for a mere $3.49 each:
I assume they were previously headboards, but I turned the first two into signs HERE and HERE. I found these several years ago and two of them made the move to our new home with us. This is the only one left.
Up next is this cabinet door that came out of our kitchen when we updated it and had to remove a cabinet:
The hoarder in me figured I could eventually use it for something!
Also hanging out in my storage room was this cute mirror I picked up for $6.25:
I’m always on the lookout for mirrors because they are usually good sellers, and this one is super cute!
This next item also moved with us from the old house. I picked it up in case I came across a child’s table or desk to pair it with, but it is too tall for the only kids’ table I’ve found, so it will be painted solo:
I believe I paid $5 for it, but it’s been a while so my memory may be foggy on that one.
Here is another mirror from my storage room:
As you can see, it was $24.92. I paid more than I usually would, but I had plans to use it in our current home. I ended up finding one I liked better, so this one was stuck in the storage room.
Here is another item I have had since our hold house:
I found this on a FB yard sale page for $15. It’s missing some veneer on top and so it has just sat…not anymore!
This boring mirror also came from the old house with us:
It came with this dresser that Jack and I worked on together. The dresser was only $30 and this seemed oversized for the dresser, so we left it off. I was tempted to donate it, but the mirror has a nice beveled edge, so I decided I would see what paint could do for it.
This rocker has also been hanging around my storage room for far too long:
It was only $19.95 at the thrift store and it has a super cute shape to it…might be cute for a nursery?
Here’s another storage room find:
This was $9.95 at the thrift store, but I thought it was well worth that for the weight of it and all the detail.
And the final item I pulled from my storage room is this table:
I paid $19.95 for it at the thrift store and it has been holding my lamp in there for ages. Time to get it out of there!
Now let’s see what I pulled from the garage!
I have been really good about trying to keep the garage as cleared as possible, but there are few things that have been hanging out in there for a while.
First is this twin headboard and footboard that I found a couple of summers ago at a yard sale for $10
A bed offers so many possibilities!
I also had this unfinished wood cabinet out there:
My dad used to build small furniture pieces back in the day and my mom would paint them. They did several craft markets a year. This was one of the cabinets they had left over and they offered it to me. I actually just remembered that I still have a couple of tables up on top of a storage cabinet in the garage that he made. I’ll have to tackle those next time!
My dad also asked if I wanted these extra four doors:
Sure thing! I’ll do something with them!
And the last thing I pulled from the garage was this set of chairs:
You may remember I redid two just like it HERE this summer. These once belonged to my mom and then I used them for years. I eventually sold them along with a table to one of my besties. She used them for years before deciding she no longer needed them and offered them back to me. So they will be happy to find their way out of the garage, I’m sure.
And now for the fun part…the goodies I found thrifting!
Finding furniture has been challenging lately, but I have found a few smaller things.
I scored this table for only $15.25:
It is in great condition and it will paint up so cute!
I also found this secretary/dresser:
It was originally priced at $49, but that was too much for me. When I stopped in again a week later, it was marked down to $34.95. More my price!
It has its issues, but hopefully they will be easily remedied.
Then I had a run on cheap chairs. I found this little chair just last week for $5:
I loved the shape of it!
I also found this cute chair at the same Goodwill where I found the table:
Isn’t it cute?? It was also only $5.
Then I came across a pair of these for $6.25 each:
I only picked up one as the other wasn’t in as good condition. I also had a full punch card that got me an additional 20% off woohoo!
I found this bench on the same stop. It was $12 with an extra 20% off:
And the last piece of furniture I found was this desk for $19.95:
The top is a hot mess, but nothing that can’t be sanded away.
I did find lots of non-furniture treasures!
First, I picked up this little case for $8.25:
That is kind of steep, but I loved it so I bought it! I originally thought I could just put it in my booth as is, but then I had another idea.
I also found this cute magazine rack for $6.98:
That was also pricey in my opinion, but I liked the shape of it.
This little box wasn’t too bad for $2.25:
I’m sure it was once part of a canister set.
I loved this rocking horse I picked up for $3.25:
That was well worth it!
I almost always find a few frames when thrifting. I found these at two different stores:
I paid $7 for both. Things just aren’t priced as cheap as they once were at my favorite Goodwill, but these will paint up cute.
I often find lamps also.
I picked up these two on the same day:
The smaller one was $5.25, and the larger of the two was $6.25.
This clock was a great find, even at $8, since I used my punch card coupon on this too, but the finish on it looked yellowed and dirty:
A fresh coat of paint will fix it right up!
I’m always drawn to anything made of wood. This little chest wasn’t bad for $4.25 (also with an extra 20%off):
The knobs do look like a face though lol.
Check out this gorgeous frame I scored for $4.25:
I’ve never seen a 3-D frame like this and with so much ornately carved detail.
This was just a simple mirror but too good to pass up for $4.25:
I also thought this simple wooden tray wasn’t too bad for $3.25:
Lot’s of possibilities with this one!
There haven’t been many yard sales to visit lately with the threat of this virus, but I actually stopped at one last weekend and picked up this basket for $1:
It looks like one of those baskets that was part of a gift basket at one time, but it should paint up nicely. Oh how I’ve missed yard saling!
This metal thing was kind of cool for $6.25 :
It would be cute above a doorway.
This sign wasn’t a bad deal at $3.25:
It has some pretty detail that will be pretty painted.
I thought this huge basket was a deal at $6.25:
I have a plan for this one already!
And finally, my sister was going to toss this cabinet she removed from her bathroom wall:
Of course, I took it off her hands real quick!
And that, my dear friends, is my biggest haul of them all!!
I cannot wait to barrel my way through these makeovers! I’m even more excited to have lots of new inventory for my booth!
But first, I will return on Thursday with a tour of my Halloween decor!
I know Halloween isn’t for everyone, but we really do it up around here, and I think you’ll enjoy it even if Halloween isn’t your thang!
UPDATE: See my Halloween Tour inside and out HERE now!
OR, you can skip to my first makeover from this batch HERE! It’s a good one! 🙂
See ya then!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
