It's time for a new series, peeps! I've been an avid thrifter since my teenage years (Mamarazzi taught me well) so naturally, this series is very exciting for me. I will be sharing the fabulous thrifty finds of some of my favourite bloggers. Pieces from good ol' thrift stores, flea markets, even Kijiji and Craigslist. So make sure you follow along every Thursday to see the unique items that have found a new life in these bloggers homes!
I’m going to kick things off with Laura Collins, a decorator and stylist from Toronto. Her and her partner share a beautiful 1920’s townhouse in Cabbagetown which is totally magazine worthy. After you check out these photos you will quickly see why. Beautiful colours which are all on trend right now and a mixture of modern and vintage style which I love.
Fave Thrifted Find: Vintage Glass Table with Brass & Lucite Legs
Where is this piece from? I purchased this piece from Kijiji, I had my eye on it for several months however it was located really far away (who knew brass and lucite could be found in the countryside!) I finally kept at the opportunity as the price decreased- and it fit seamlessly into our living space.
What drew you to this piece? I am a HUGE fan of retro pieces that incorporate modern elements into their design. I knew I wanted a glass top table, that was of this scale- the bonus was finding an original custom made brass capped lucite leg piece. Looks incredible with the Moroccan shag rug. It really tied our space together, it grounds all of the other pieces.
How do you use this piece in your home? I use it to display my coffee table books (I have a collection), and pieces I have thrifted over the years. I love vintage ashtrays, brass figures, and sea inspired decorative objects.
What an amazing find Laura! Thanks so much for sharing your favourite piece with us. Be sure to check out Laura's blog here to see what other loveliness she cooks up on the regular.
