It’s the first Monday of the month, that means it’s time for me to share my recent thrift store finds with you. The month started out slow with purchasing some small finds, but ended large with great free stuff. Since we’re in the dead of Winter, I’ve been looking for some smaller items to work on indoors.
Shopping with cousin Terry after dinner one night I came across these furniture pieces, but since I already have stuff in storage, I passed.
I did pick up these wooden bowls because I thought they were 50% off. When I got to the checkout I found out they weren’t but since I’ve been wanting some, I paid full price, about $1.99 for the large ones.
These items were at Unique Thrift Store on Preston Highway (Louisville KY). They had a lot of knife blocks (I didn’t get any)
I was trying to figure out what I could do with this wooden spice rack—turning it sideways and upside down, but also left it behind.
These loaf pans came home with me. I like their patina, and their size.
I got a great deal on these wooden salad bowls. I think they were only a few dollars.
I don’t have a plan for these small white shelves, but they got added to my stash for only $1 each!
This wooden cutting block is resting in the child seat of the grocery cart, so that will give you an idea of the size. I thought it was a bargain at $2.
I need another lamp, like I need a hole in the head, but it was such a good deal I couldn’t pass it up. I think it was only $4.
Have you seen my new truck? I wonder how many months I’ll refer to it as “my new truck”. I really do love driving it!
Rodney offered me all this free furniture months ago, and has been storing it until I had room for it. He needed the room and “delivered” it to me from across the street! This dresser is so heavy, I can barely lift one corner to put it on a dolly.
The drawers are very deep, and you can see it has a shelf in the middle section.
The headboard is also very heavy.
The chest of drawers had “shutter” doors, but Rodney used them on a hutch he made for their kitchen.
Here’s the bad news, none of this set is real wood. You can see here that it has water damage and the Faux knots and dry brushed green paint is just PAPER!
You can see in this nightstand that the tops to the furniture are the same way. The paper looks very realistic, but it’s all particle board. All of this is very heavy and I think it’s going to be quite a challenge to work with. Please share your ideas in a comment below.
SCORE! More great doors. All of these doors match-being very old, heavy and sturdy.
Three of them still have the doorknobs with old key holes in the door plates. This one is the only one without it.
ohhh, and did I forget to mention they were FREE! Rescued from the dumpster!
What good stuff have you found lately? Any suggestions for the goodies I picked up?
