1.99 Thrift Store Finds
Gussying up my front porch with a few thrift store finds. I put a fresh coat of black paint on my old bench and dug out a few things I had tucked away for summer. These embroidered (crewel maybe?)Pottery Barn pillow covers where a steal at the Goodwill for a $1.99 each. I used some feather pillow inserts I had on hand and just popped them in a trash bag before inserting them. I also added a few rocks so they don't blow away in the wind. It has been crazy windy here!
The vintage cotton tatted (is that what it's called?) tablecloth was 1.99 too! I'm usually not a lace girl but I liked the texture. I'm thinking I will dye it red with some Rit.
I still need to add potted flowers to the yard, I had a little bit of sticker shock this week at the nursery. The price of flowers has really gone up compared to last year. Is it that way in your area too?
It will be a cozy spot for my morning coffee. I hope everyone has had a nice week. My youngest and I are off to see Speed Racer at the IMAX. Should be fun!!!
