Welcome to our monthly thrift store challenge hosted by Emily at Le Cultivateur and Tara at stilettos and shiplap . Be sure to scroll to the bottom and check out all of these awesome finds!!!
Each of us will bring you items that we scored while thrifting or on marketplace.
This month I was super excited because I finally found a large coffee table on marketplace. BUUUUTTTTT, my paint hasn’t come in and no way I’m adding it as is to the living room.
Look at the pretty legs on her and the unique paint colors and textures (she’s taking a lot of sanding!).
So plan B… is there something that you always grab while thrifting, no matter how many you already own?
Btw you can SHOP MY HOME HERE .
For me I always pick up good priced doilies. Have y’all seen people display a wooden embroidery hoop with a ￼￼doily? I had a small hoop from my attempt at an embroidery piece and figured I would give it a shot.
It’s super easy and I will for sure make a large one soon!
Take your hoop apart and lay your doily in between each ring with the large one on the bottom. Then place the center hoop on top and tighten the ring up. You may have to pull each corner of the doily to tighten it up a bit.
Now use a piece of twine or jute rope and attach a hanger for the piece (or if you want to hang it with a nail then skip this step).
How easy is this?
Here is another easy way to spruce up a thrift store find.
This is a quilting piece that I found for $5 at a yard sale that our hospital hosted.
I love the rustic swatches and figured it would be great for fall, but I wanted to brighten it up a bit. I used this milk paint and painted the border and frame. I then broke the glass in true Danya fashion!! 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
What do y’all think? It’s a huge piece for $5!
I plan on hanging it along our stairs.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Don’t forget to scroll all the way down and check out everyone’s awesome finds!

I always see old frames but wonder if I could truly transform them, but you make it look so easy! I’d definitely have to try it.
Thank you. Just a little paint and that’s it. Super easy! Just don’t break the glass like me 🤦🏻♀️
I love the transformation of the frame, and that quilt is perfect for Fall! Great job!
Thank you. So simple ❤️
I like how you framed the little doily. So cute! That framed quilt is also so cozy looking the way you finished it and I just love it with your cozy mustard fall throw blanket. It’s perfect!
Thank you! I love the quilt. Wish I knew how to quilt!
I do but haven’t made any in so many years!
Great pieces, I have many very old lace pieces from my grandmother. This is giving ne an idea to display some.
The coffee table is a great find too.
Thank you and your welcome ❤️
Wow, what great finds! Love them both. They look perfect in your amazing home.
Thank you so much Jodi ❤️
Danya I need to start looking for doilies. I never do. I do look at frames and furniture. By the way I love the coffee table can’t wait to see what you do with it. It’s going to look amazing girl!
Thank you Terrie! I’m so ready to get it painted and in the house.
