Lucky for me, Spokane has a ton of awesome thrift stores; plus, it's summer so there are yard sales and estate sales every weekend. Instead of being frustrated with my meager budget, it's been fun to search for bargains and see what quality used pieces I can find and refurbish.
Here are some of my finds. So far I've repainted the dresser I found and bought paint, fabric, and the needed supplies to re-do my dining room set. It's going to be a lot of work but I'm excited to see how it turns out. After pictures coming soon!
$75 vintage brass bed frame found at an estate sale
(similar bed frame at Anthropologie goes for $2,000!)
free nightstand from my parents' basement
$20 lamp found at a thrift store
$75 dresser found at Pine Street Market & Boutique
$65 dining room table with six chairs found at Union Gospel Mission thrift store
(This has definitely been by greatest find so far. I'm going to host Thanksgiving for my family this year with this table!)
