$60.00 nook!


It has been kind of crazy how all the elements of our house have come together. All of our decor and furniture was thrifted before we moved.

I love sitting back with Jeff and adding how much corner did not cost us!

Here is my $60.00 nook!
  • Buffet that we painted white - Goodwill $25.00
  • Fake Van Gogh in frame - Goodwill $4.99
  • Lamp - Tina's Consignment $15.00
  • Mirror with gold trim - Tina's Consignment $3.99
  • Cake Stands - Costco - $15.00
I went to Home Goods yesterday and had a hard time buying anything. My mind kept saying, "$40.00, I can find this for $5.00" Wow real stuff is expensive and I was at Home Goods!

What is your best thrifted item?

I LOVE your buffet! I've been looking for one for years here in utah to paint white but the ones I find are either way to expensive or gone. It seems like everyone is into thrifting and DIY here. Your nook is just dreamy!

That came together great. I love my colorful retro Pyrex from Savers!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come shop for me! I've been looking for a buffet for 2 months now and have almost decided to just go to a real store instead of re-doing it myself. *shriek*
Your couch deal is the best I've ever seen. You are my hero!

Oh Kristi!!! So fun to see some of your home!!! I loved the piggie in the window! What a great score on the couch!!!! Hello - you have some serious skill with looking and FINDING things like that!

Please tell me you are still unpacking!!! Otherwise I might be totally depressed!

I love that buffet! Jealous. And I can't believe those cake stands were at Costco! You are the master.

I've been looking for a tiny dresser to use as a nightstand and a bookshelf for Eva's room and have come up totally empty.
