{Designer Tip} What a Gem!


I found this pair of nesting side tables that I am now using as my coffee table in my living room.  When I first saw it I was attracted to the bamboo-like legs and glass top.  I figured I would paint it once I got it home, but now that I've been living with it for awhile, I really like it the way it is!  There are some rough spots and the color is chipping off so I might go over it with some bronze paint to take away some of the shiny gold-ness of it.  My point is, if you can't find something you like in the mass stores, head to your local thrift and you might just hit gold!   ;) 

How about you guys?  What is the best thing that you have found in a thrift store?  Or what have you been searching for that you just haven't found yet?


  1. Love them! Great find! I never seem to have much luck at thrift stores, but I guess I need to keep trying...

  2. Love them! Definitely leave them AS IS. I love their look.

  3. those tables are awesome! thrifting can be a goldmine.

  4. Wow! Those are beautiful! I wish we had more thrift stores nearby.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to drop me a line!
