shopping scavenging over the weekend and found this:
We know, we know, it’s a little grody. But look at that gorgeous shape! It reminded us of some clear-glass ginger jars we loved in this room:
You’ll never believe what this beauty set us back!
It was priced at a whopping $9.50 at the Salvation Army thrift store…but because we didn’t want the stained shade that was on it, the lady insisted we take it for $8! Score!!!
We also found this old metal typing desk for $22:
It fits well with our industrial chic aesthetic.
Okay, so “industrial chic” is pretty much just code for cheap, used, sometimes strange pieces that can be reborn as furniture. And gray. Pretty much anything gray calls to us.
As you can see, the table and lamp both needed a good bath. After cleaning ’em up and digging out an old lampless shade we already owned, here’s our new side table:
We realize it’s a little tall for the chair, which really belongs at my desk (yet to be set up) and is currently serving as a placeholder in the living room.
Did you discover any good finds over the weekend? Are you also addicted to cheap and fabulous re-purposing?
