making our house a home | thrifty home decor

I'm always showing off all of my thrifted clothes, but I don't only dress myself with thrifted items, a lot of my home is dressed in thrifted decor!  Here are some of the goodies I've found since we've moved into our house:

My parent's found these bar-stools for us brand new at an auction & scored all 3 for only $80! My mom said they retail for about $150 each
Canvas Picture: Goodwill $3.99
I plan on putting it in our guest bathroom once I find a shower curtain & rug to match
Kirkland's brand new with tags picture in frame: Goodwill $12.00
This picture still had the Kirkland's tag on it that said $59.99!  Then the Goodwill had it marked for $24, but everything in the Goodwill was 50% the day I went in because they were having a moving sale... so it's like I got it for a total of 20% of the original price wow!
Wine Rack: Goodwill $3.99
Vintage Tin: Garage Sale $1
Pitcher: Bargain World Thrift Store $3 | Other Decoration: $5.99 (not sure what you call this but I absolutely love it and I based my colors in my kitchen and dining room off of this!)
Mail Holder: Goodwill $4.99
Brand new with tags ($20): Goodwill $5.99
Candle holders: St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store $1.75 each | Candles: Goodwill $1 each
Smaller vintavge tin: Garage Sale $1
Our house is slowly but surely coming along and hopefully in a few months I'll be able to show y'all a fully decorated room! Whoop whoop! 


  1. I really need to stop at the Goodwill and consignment shops for some decor. We recently moved and I have yet to begin decorating. You had some awesome finds!!

  2. I LOVE to shop at Goodwill for home goods! I am totally jealous of those tins from the garages sale, the canvas painting, and the mail holder. I have been wanting one of those :)

  3. I'm a thrift store/garage sale junkie!!!! If you get a little creative you just never know what you're going to find!

  4. Those are great findings! Especially the chairs! They are beautiful.
