In response to Thrifty Decor Chick's Goodwill Party

Thrifty Decor Chick (see her in my blog list to the right) is having a Goodwill Party where she is encouraging readers to showcase their secondhand finds. I have been pretty busy hitting craigslist and garage sales to find my various treasures and so far I think I've done pretty good. Here are just a few of the highlights!

I found a solid wood bookcase/hutch thingie on craigslist for $20. I forgot to take before pictures until after I primed it, but here it is.

After 2 coats of white paint here it is in it's new home in the corner of my living room.

There's a little spot in my master bathroom that I had been searching for some sort of vanity for. Originally I bought one of those plastic storage containers to go in it as pictured here.

However I hated the way it looked inside my bathroom. I found this little green number at a garage sale for $5.

A coat of primer and several layers of white paint later (that green was a pain to cover up) I now have something a little more acceptable for my bathroom.

I'll take pictures later of my parent's room which I almost completely furnished secondhand except for the bedding and TV which I bought on clearance. Not including the bedding I spent $100 total for all the furniture pieces and it looks great! I'll try to get to it in the next few days or so.
