I picked up this stainless steel lamp this week for $8.00. My seven year old and the lamp that used to sit on this desk had a little run in a few weeks ago. Let's just say, the lamp ended up in the trash. This lamp works much better on the desk and it provides more light.
Speaking of thrifty finds, I found this cute little desk and chair at an outdoor antique show last fall for just $15.00. It's a great place for the kids to sit down and color or do homework.
My next find is this little metal caddy. I can think of so many uses for this treasure.
1) gathering supplies for a lunch with my girlfriends (wow, four plates and about twenty five straws, guess we better plan on having a few fruity cocktails)
2) organizing the gardening tools
3) displaying a few potted flowers
4) keeping the kids' art supplies in order
Seriously, I could go on and on. It was definitely worth every bit of $6.00.
I bought this painting for $3.00 and I love the colors. It is hanging in our living room. I'm sure it's not some valuable piece of art and is probably worth all of $3.00, but I immediately fell in love with it.
What about you? Are you a fan of hunting for thrifty treasures?
