Thrifty Finds

So many of you have been posting your trash to treasure ideas. I thought I would give it a shot. Being in the businesses for years I have so many. I thought I would start with some projects that I have been working on during the transformation of my home.


I found these chairs a few weeks ago at a tag sale. I needed two for in front of my fireplace. The price was good ($30), the scale worked but the look was off. See below to what happened next.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog! Your chairs look great! I love that fabric on the seats. And what a bargain!

Oh, and I see that you have Breakfast Club listed in your fav movie list. That is one of my absolute all time favorites too!

Heather, now those chairs were a steal! I've never found anything like those at such a great price. Lucky you! I loved them before, but the after is nice too.
