A month back I went thrifting looking specifically for furniture. I needed storage in my dining room in a bad way. I was so happy to find this really large dresser for only $50 in really good condition at Salvation Army. PERFECT for my dining room. It holds all my candles, table cloths, napkins and placemats, some seasonal stuff and party type stuff. And it has a nice surface on top that can be used as a buffet. As for the decoratey type stuff, I found the star on clearance at Hobby Lobby, the grass thingy at Target and 'shopped' the other parts of the house for the rest. I may one day paint it, but I like it as it is for now. :)
This little side table I got for $8 at a junky thrift store. Remember these tables from the 60's/70's? This one is turned on it's side and painted bright red. I love how contemporary the lines were and the height it gives beside the chair for a nice nickel finished desk lamp (from Target).
