Do you love thrifting around for the best deals? Wait until you see my thrift shop finds and how I styled them!
With all the thrifting I’ve been doing lately, I thought it would be fun to share not just what I bought, but how I styled it!
Now that we are moved in and updating spaces, I’m pulling them together with some of my flea market finds.
It’s so fun to hunt around and find the right piece for the proper space!
And while it’s easier to hop online and buy something from Wayfair or Amazon, it’s a whole lot more fun thrifting around at the local antique malls, flea markets, Facebook Market place and thrift shops.
You can find something that is more unique and not mass produced for a song!
Wait until you see what I found and how I styled it!

My Thrift Shop Finds and How I Styled Them
While I loved my old house, I couldn’t find the right spot for some of my finds.
So once we moved here, I am making it a point to include them in my decor.
Vintage Wrought Iron Basket
At my former home, I was using this vintage wrought iron basket in my cut flower garden as outdoor decor, but here in the new house, I stuffed it with some pretty faux ferns and paperwhites.
When I first filled it with my faux greenery and flowers, I decorated my coffee table in the family room with it.
But after painting the front entry hall?
I am loving it on my painted piano.
Doesn’t it look great there?
Old Vintage Mirror
Speaking of the front entry hall, when Shana was home a few weeks ago, we went thrifting and found that awesome mirror.
There was no price on it so we asked a store clerk who told us it was originally marked for $250 but felt it was going to break on the floor so we could take it for $40.
And let me tell you it is totally worth it.
The weight of it alone is tremendous and the vintage design is made of wood.
It had a brassy finish on it though? So I went over it lightly with some gold Rub ‘n Buff and voila I’ve got a cool vintage mirror that goes so well above the piano.
Vintage Wood Frame
So I bought that cool vintage wood frame I was telling you about for several weeks.
By the time we went with Shana, it was still there for like $20, so I bought it figuring I would eventually refinish the wood or find a vintage botanical print to cover the painting.
Well, I haven’t done any DIYs on it yet, but it is also currently situated in the front entry hall above our antique chess table.
And the back story behind that chess table is my father-in-law won it in a poker game decades ago.
We love that table and have been looking for the right spot for it.
After remodeling the front entry hall a few weeks ago, I moved the chess table in here and added that vintage painting above it.
It works for now. My husband isn’t the biggest fan of the painting so eventually, I’ll do something with it.
Thrift Shop Jugs and Crocks
I never met an old vintage jug or crock that I didn’t love.
You can find so many different spots for them, am I right?
I used to keep a collection above an armoire in my former living room as well as the bay window with some of my houseplants.
But now, I have them sprinkled around the house holding pretty faux flowers and greens.
Do you guys remember that urn I snagged on my way out of the antique flea market in Vermont?
That was such a great find.
I used it in my old home but it’s found a permanent spot in my formal living room with these gorgeous faux roses.
Old Wood Butter Churn Bucket
I’m not sure when I found this one, but when I saw it in Vermont I knew I had to have it for my plants.
I LOVE IT!
And I know I didn’t show it off much in the old house, but I didn’t have it in the best photographic location.
But here in the new house?
It contains my gorgeous Monstera deliciosa in the family room.
Don’t you love it too? GAH!
Old Wood End Table or Plant Stand?
Do you guys remember that wood end table/plant stand I bought a few months ago at the thrift store?
Well, here it is all lightened up for the family room.
I haven’t decided whether to use it as an end table or plant stand yet though.
It has great stability to lift my split-leaf philodendron off the ground so I’m leaning toward that direction, but I don’t know, what do you think?
