Looking for budget-friendly decorating inspiration? Wait until you see my latest thrift store find and where I’m using it!

Have you ever seen a piece while thrifting around that you knew you needed but weren’t sure what you were going to do with it?

Yep, that’s my latest thrift store find.

I shared a sneak peek of it in last month’s thrifting adventure. So this month, I thought I’d share where it is in my home today and how I styled it.

For now anyways.

Wait until you see the details on this piece cause it is a beauty!

In the Thrift Shop

While we were thrifting at the Habitat for Humanity Restore a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this GORGEOUS cabinet with a marble countertop.

It was nestled in among some other finds so I didn’t notice it right away. But when I did? I knew it was coming home with me.

The details on this piece are unbelievable, right?

Chris was looking at other things in the thrift store when I found it so I was trying to whisper yell to him to come over.

Have you ever done that before to get your spouse’s attention? LOL

Well, he did not hear me and people may have thought I was a little crazy, but I was not leaving this piece. The Restore was packed with thrifters and I was not leaving it for one hot second.

I mean, the price is $100, it’s beautiful with great storage, and would make a beautiful bathroom vanity if we added a sink bowl on top. So the possibilities are endless what we could do with it and where we could use it.

Since I was on a mission to get this piece, I started crazy calling him in the store with my cell phone. hahaha

He eventually got the message and meandered over. And even he agreed this piece was too good to pass up.

So we brought it home.

My Latest Thrift Store Find and How I Styled It

Oftentimes, when I go thrifting I consider ways to make pieces over. Whether it’s painting, staining, stripping, and/or sanding, a laundry list of ways to update a piece runs through my mind as I’m perusing the shop.

But I’m not touching the wood on this piece. It’s too beautiful.

We may at some point flip it into a bathroom vanity, but for now, we are leaving it as is until we figure out where best to use it.

Since we aren’t flipping it anytime soon, we are keeping it in the foyer until we figure out what to do with it. And it may just stay here.

I’ve been looking for storage pieces anyway and this one fits the bill. It’s a good size, fits well between my window and front door, and looks pretty to boot.

See what I mean about the details in the wood?

Like, I can’t believe this piece was only $100!

And yes that is a real marble countertop on it too! It has a little dull spot on the top but who cares. It is barely noticeable.

I’d love to put this in the powder room on the main floor but it’s a little too big for the space. We need a vanity or sink that is smaller in depth or we won’t be able to close the door.

To decorate for spring, I added some thrifty decor on the marble countertop. I found that old painting at the thrift store last year.

And while I don’t love the painting per se, I LOVE that frame. I’ll do something with the painting at some point, but for now, it’s staying as is.

To decorate the top of this beautiful piece, I added a vintage crock with faux flowers for spring, an A-frame birdhouse, and some pottery.

What do you think? It’s so pretty, right?

We’ve found a lot of great pieces thrifting around, but this one might be my favorite find so far.

And now, I’m dying to back to see what other great pieces I’ll find.

  1. What a lucky, beautiful find!! And you styled it in such a lovely way. It looks like it belongs exactly there!

  2. I can’t believe you found this at Restore! You must have the best Restore in the country, lol. Seriously, that is an amazing piece and I love how you styled it.

  3. This piece is gorgeous & love the price! And I love how you styled it with garden style. Decorating with thrifted finds is so fun!

  4. Wow, Stacy, that piece is stunning! I’m such a sucker for carved wood and I would have totally wanted to bring that home with me! I have a lot of favorite thrifted furniture pieces in my home, in fact, probably at least 3/4 of our furniture is second hand, mostly the case goods. My biggest “deal” and one of my most favorite pieces is gorgeous wood entry table with drawer. It has the most beautiful carved wood details and turned legs. It was $80 on FB marketplace from a law office. When I got home with it and was checking it out, I happened to pull out the drawer and on the bottom was a price sticker from a local high end furniture store no longer in business for $1599! Nothing like a 90% off discount! Your cabinet looks great in that spot, and that art does have a very “springy” feel! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Wow, now that is a deal!!! I bet it’s beautiful! You can find the best stuff thrifting around – I love FB marketplace too.

  5. What a lovely piece of furniture – real marble and all that wood carving for $100, that’s a steal! That picture frame is gorgeous – don’t know how hard it is to get to the picture, but I’d come up with a ‘seasonal’ piece of art so that it moves through the seasons with your tabletop items – you can switch it out easily and then you have an area that just flows together as you can change things. You have the loveliest home & gardens – its a treat for the eyes to see what you do with it. I pick up a lot of nice ideas for outside from your posts….thank you!

    1. I really appreciate that so much Deb and I love that idea!!! I will def do something with it at some point – it’s on my list! hahaha.

  6. That really was a fantastic find!!! Looks great styled but will be so good as a vanity too!(can’t believe those are fake roses!!)

  7. What a fabulous find, Stacy! I am loving the marble top and the carved details. Your Habitat for Humanity has such a great selection compared to ours.
