I am so happy to feature one of my newest blogger friends, Sabrina from The Pink Little Notebook. We actually met at Blogpodium last Saturday and it was great to chat and get to know one another in person!
Your favourite thrifted item:
One of my favourite and most memorable thrift item has to be my bamboo side tables.
Where you bought/got the piece from:
I found this piece during my first visit to a thrift store. I wasn't too sure what to expect but I instantly spotted & fell in love with this piece. I can definitely say from that very moment I knew I found a new passion. I'm now a frequent thrift store visitor!
What drew you to the piece:
1-it is a sturdy piece of furniture that will probably last me forever; 2-I couldn’t resist the curvy geometric pattern; and 3-the price! At $10 a piece, I had nothing to lose!
Describe any work you did to give it new life:
It was a fairly simple process since the piece was still in good condition. A light sanding and a coat of primer was applied to prep my surfaces. I opted for a neutral colour and spray painted the entire thing (two coats to be exact). I finished it off by hand painting some of the geometric pattern in white paint and added some rope accent to finish of the piece.
how you use/display it:
Today the piece sits proudly in my family room as a side table. What I love about this piece is that it is also sturdy enough to use as a stool when I need the extra seating. It was definitely an awesome find!
What an amazing find for $10! I love how the rope adds a little somethin' somethin'. It definitely adds more interest and texture to the piece!
Thanks so much for taking part in Thrifted Thursday, Sabrina. It was great to meet you and we should definitely get together soon :)
