Goodwill doesn't disappoint!

Chris and I were running errands on Thursday and randomly decided to stop at the Goodwill. I wasn't expecting to find anything really, we've actually been donating to the Goodwill for the last few weeks, so we don't need any more stuff! Of course, though, I found some awesome stuff that I really couldn't pass up.

I bought a white braided belt (that I didn't photograph) for $0.99 and this little kitty print (which Chris HATES!!!!) that's found a home propped up on my spool holder. Only $1.99!


The real treasure of this thrifting trip is this amazing chair.






It's not my usual style, so I tweeted about it asking what people thought. Everyone who responded said go for it, and that I can reupholster it if I want (the beautiful ladies who responded seem to have overestimated my crafty abilities, reupholstering sounds about as fun as getting teeth pulled!). It definitely has grown on me, the olive color is one of my favorite shades ever! The best part? Only $4.99. Yup, five bucks for this lil' (big) beauty. It's pretty over the top and the tall scrolled back is ridiculous, but I love her! So does Jeans, he's been sleeping under it since we brought it home...!

What's your favorite thrifted find??

  2. Goodwill is the BEST for kitty prints! That chair is awesome - looks like one of ours but in much better shape. I keep pretending that I'm going to reupholster ours, but let's be honest...it hasn't happened yet and I don't even know where to start!
