Goodwill Thrift Store Homeware Haul
Goodwill Thrift Store Homeware Haul

A few weeks ago I took a break from my current house project of painting the kitchen table to make a trip into town to do a couple errands and check out the Sunday sales at Goodwill. I didn't find much in the clothing department except for a Target brand crop top for a buck, but I as I ventured across the store there were a few half off decor items that caught my eye.

The copper pineapple is among one of my favorite finds from the trip as it's so bright and will look adorable hanging somewhere in the kitchen. I thought the little items would fit in nicely in the new curio cabinet my boyfriend built in the living room, or placed on the shelf above my vanity. I'm still not quite sure what the worn wooden basket is meant for, but I thought I would use it for a catch-all for coupons or any small papers floating around the kitchen.

The mirrored tray was something I contemplated buying as there were some chips and cracks around the edges and the glass was not in flawless condition, but I couldn't resist the $4 price tag after my half off coupon. To salvage such a great piece, I decided to enhance its shabby state by painting the top with white latex house paint to cover up some of the blemishes. After a few thin coats and about a day of drying time, I hand sanded the corners and sides with a light grit sandpaper to scratch off some of the paint until it had a worn, authentically vintage look.

Have you been thrifting lately?
