Somehow or another, I ended up in the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Saturday Morning. Though I was on my way to brunch, its flashing light was calling me (much like the "Hot Donughts" sign at Krispy Kreme). I've since found out that this particular SA location is notorious for having a great furniture selection. I got a fab etagere there last year, so I should have remembered. I'd only made a semi circle in the entrance when I came across the diamond-in-the rough below. Marked $70, it had been on the floor greater than 40 days (and waiting for me) which entitled me to a 50 percent discount. Can you believe it? I couldn't. I thought I would hyperventilate. Yes...it's banana yellow. Yes...it'll take a little elbow grease to turn it into the perfect piece. I'm OK with that.
I'm thinking that I should put it in my home office (since so many big deals are being brokered in there these days). I've decided on this little sofa from Nate Berkus (and, y'all, don't discount HSN!)
Won't it be lovely painted an orange-ish red...maybe blood orange? I am OBSESSED with the blood orange/Tiffany blue combo these days. I'm currently hunting the perfect pink/white fabric for drapes as I continue to outfit the room from which I shall build my empire! *rubbing hands together*
Do you shop at thrift stores? Which ones in your area do you recommend?
