Shared Treasures-Discount Decorating

I was “thrifting” yesterday despite the snow, then rain, then sleet. Pickings were pretty slim but I did buy a neat, scrolly iron wine rack & sweater for myself. I have to share some of my past finds though. I am in the process of redecorating a room around one! It is by far one of my favorite prizes-a queen size Waverly comforter in shades of mustard, coral, & teal. I bought it at the Salvation Army for $9.99. It was new & had never been used. I found a pair of matching coral linen pillows with cream embroidery at
Target for $8.99 each.

I got even luckier at JC Penney when I was shopping for curtains for my Mom & Dad. I found 100% silk plaid panels for 80% off of the original price + an additional discount for their newspaper ad. I saved almost $800.00. My room is really coming together-all I have to do is paint...ugh! I am thinking coral for the walls and ivory trim on the woodwork. Any suggestions?

Another find is this Flue Cover I bought at a co-op for $2.00 & the little twig chair it is sitting on at a yard sale for $2.00.

The crystal horn was a thrift shop find for $2.99.

Don't ya just love a bargain!

Leigh said...

Those are some great bargains! I tell you what I am really loving is that bed! It is gorgeous! I can't wait to see the whole room put together!

Suzy said...

Great bargains! I think your room would look nice painted a soft green but coral would probably come out nice too.

That is my bed, is that in your home?
Years ago I took a photo of a bed so simular if not almost exactly like this in an antique mall, dreaming of having one one day like it. Still have not got the bed, so guess I need to come stay at your Home aka B&B in that one, lol!
Lovely! You find some great things at the thrift store, wow.
