Thrift Store Fun!


Sam and I went thrifting yesterday! We found some really awesome stuff! I'd never been before, it was so much fun! Then we got busy and my wonderful husband painted a dresserfor me. My grandparents gave me a dresser that was my moms when she was a little girl. It was in GREAT shape just needed to be clean and needed alittle paint! I decided to put this dresser in my guestroom. And I got to use most of my thrift store findings!! WARNING: Lots of pictures!



Before:




After: In my guestroom
Alittle blurry. The cross above the new dresser was a wedding gift, and it is from Mexico. One of my favorite crosses.


The turquoise piece, the candle holder, and the little heart piece are all from the thrift store.

This is one of my favorite pieces that I found yesterday. So pretty! I got it for like $5.00!


I found this adorable egg at the thrift store. I actually found another one with blue. Is it too early to put easter stuff up?!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

Love, Emily
