It is Thrifty Thursday over at Bloggeritaville
You really need to check out her lovely blog and see what other thrifty people are coming up with this week.
I actually got these two chairs about a month ago, before I was blogging, at a garage sale. I paid $2 apiece for them. Yes, just $2. The funny thing is that I was just going to buy one of the chairs, because all I had on me was a twoonie (Canadian for a two dollar coin). But a sweet lady who was also looking at them told me I really should buy the two of them and handed me a twoonie. Isn't that amazing?! I had not planned to go garage saleing that day, I just happened to see the sign and it was tempting, so I went. They are solid, but covered in very dirty stinky gold velvet fabric. So I threw some fabric over them to see how it would look and I like it. So, I have painted the wood white and will soon reupholster them in the beige fabric. I think they will look marvelous, don't you?
My next thrify find was about two weeks ago. I found the table and chairs at another garage sale for $20. Again, they are very solid and in very good condition. I am in the process of painting them white, also. Then my little screened in porch will look ship-shape.
The only thing I will need to do then is to rip up the berber carpet and put down a rug. I saw an amazing give away over at The Old White Cottage and if I could win that rug it would be wonderful! But hey, it is open to all, so why don't you go over and see if you can win it. It is worth a try, I think. I may be painting the inside of my porch also, then it will all be brand new.
Thank you for coming by to see my Thrifty Finds, that I am quite proud of!! It is so sweet of you to leave a comment, I read them all and enjoy them to the fullest.
Have a beautiful day,
DIY children fun, batch cooking and etc:
