I haven't posted anything thrifted in forever! Mostly because I haven't gone much. Boo. I've hit a few yard sales this summer, but nothing too exciting.
Anyway, I recently decided that our (previously thrifted) patio table was too small and too wobbly, and have been trolling the classifieds looking for something just right.
And I found it!
Ignore the chairs. They're next!
Anyway, a few years ago I was at a yard sale of an older woman who was selling a beautiful chrome + formica table for $15. It was gorgeous. I wanted it SO bad but had nowhere to put it. I kept my hand on it for a while (while other shoppers hovered) and then finally gave up. Unfortunately, I never thought of keeping it out on our covered patio. Darn it - that thing was gorgeous.
This one is pretty too, and while it isn't exactly like the old one, I love the bright yellow.
The legs are cool, right? And seriously, new chairs are needed. I don't know what kind, though...
It makes me want to dress up the patio a little - maybe make a summery bunting for back there and some candle holders like these? Twinkle lights?
Anyway, the only other purchase of note lately is this set of vintage pyrex bowls. They are so pretty I couldn't leave them at the yard sale. Also they were only $2 for the set!
Yeah, I do not have room for more bowls, so I'm giving these to a friend - but they're super cute.
Have you scored anything awesome lately?
