Goodwill Finds!

I think it's safe to say that I am obsessed with Goodwill. Ever since my discovery of blogland, I've been on the search for anything and everything that I can use to decorate my new home! Well, not necessarily NEW...we've been there for a year almost, but it still looks barren! Anyways! I don't shop Goodwill just because I have no money (which is the case haha) but also because I LOVE the thrill of getting a GREAT deal! And if it's something that I can re-do and make my own, that's even better! So, without further ado (is that the right spelling of that phrase? haha), here are my latest and greatest goodwill finds/transformations!

I found these great scrapbook paper holders! Normally $10 each right across the street at the craft store, but I scored them for $4 total! With a little paint and my all time favorite technique, decoupage, they look amazing for my office that will eventually be done! haha

I found this sturdy solid wood nightstand for only $16! It was 20% off furniture day so I couldn't resist! It helped Eric's side of the room go from this:

to this:

I plan to eventually re-stain it darker, and update the hardware on the drawers, but for now it is a HUGE improvement!

I have two more pieces that I will have to add to this blog later tonight, because I totally forgot to take pictures of them! So I will be updating later :)

Update! Here are two more of my Goodwill finds!

I found this side table for $13!!! It is Broyhill and in perfect shape! I will probably stain the top to match the rest of my wood furniture, but other than that it was perfect for my family room!

And finally, this desk I found for only $15! I was eyeing it for a while, but they were asking $40...too much for me. Then they went down to $35...still too much. When I saw it for $20 with 20% off, I had to get it! I love the detail on the front! It definitely needs some love, but I had to have it!

Those are my latest Goodwill finds! Since I'm addicted to the place, I will probably have some more to put up this week haha. Enjoy, and thanks for reading!


I am linking this up to Southern Hospitality for her Thrifty Treasures Party!

  3. Wonderful find! Yes, thank goodness for the Goodwill and all thrift stores! Why buy new when you can make it new! (for so much less)

  4. Paint/stain will cure most any furniture ailment, won't it? Your piece should look fun all done up with new hardware,too. Our GW is the pits- they probably would have sold this piece for $40. They think they are a regular retail store! LOL
    Good luck on your paint job.

  5. That desk is amazing! I love the swirling details.
