I enjoy shopping second hand stores and finding treasures I can use in my home. In the past I have found so much and saved a lot of money. Of course there are times when I walk in and find nothing, but on a recent trip I was genuinely surprised by the selection.First up, I found this pineapple gold leaf lamp. What immediately caught my attention was its unique appearance. After doing a quick search online I found a similar lamp priced much higher than the $20 I paid. The lamp online is brass, mine is not, therefore I have no problems painting over the finish.
While in the same store I found a pair of scotch glasses. Although my husband and I do not drink scotch I thought they would be the perfect accessory for a bar cart. Which leads me to my next purchase...I finally found a bar cart for the family room (man cave)! I've been searching high and low, up and down for one at a reasonable price. The heavens parted and the angels sang when I found this baby on Craigslist for $30! It was originally $40, but I talked the seller down since the wheels weren't intact.
I considered painting it and posed the question on Instagram. I received some great feedback but, in the end I decided to back away from the paintbrush!
I do have plans for the mirrored top though and maybe a little rub n buff for the wheels. I can't wait to share the finished cart once I'm through styling it up.
Have you found anything while thrifting lately?
