Weekend Junk #20

Monday, September 26, 2016

Wow! Can you believe it’s been over a year and a half since my last Weekend Junk post?! I’ve still been thrift shopping during that time, but I’ve been trying to limit my purchases to pieces that I have a place for and not just hoarding things. Anyway, I have a few recent finds to share with you today so let’s get right into it!

This is probably one of my best finds ever! It’s an oil painting of New York City and I only paid $30 for it! I found it at Desert Thrift Shop (same place I found my EKTORP living room chair). Can you believe that I almost passed it up? I was feeling super cheap that day and didn’t want to spend $30 on thrift store art. Of course I came to my senses and bought it anyway. The frame is a little beat up, so I’ll probably paint it black or replace it someday, but it still looks perfect in the master bedroom as-is.



I also found this ironstone chamber pot at the same place on the same day. It was only $4 and right now I’m using it to hold a potted plant. 


This jewelry box is from the same thrift store too, but on a different day. I’d been looking for a simple jewelry box to hold a few of my favorite pieces, but nothing caught my eye until I saw this one. It doesn’t hurt that it was cheap too!


I’m on a handmade pottery kick right now, so I was really excited to find this vase at Goodwill for $1.99. I love the colors and it looks great in so many places around the house. It’ll probably end up on my bookcase though.


I also found this pottery piece at Savers for $3.99. I’m going to use it to replant the faux succulents that are currently in a plain terra cotta pot on my coffee table. 



Has anyone else been thrift shopping lately? Any good finds?
