If you can’t tell already, I love finding inexpensive ways to update my decor. With the money I save, I am able to blend the cheap chic pieces with more expensive items that I really want. I’ve collected some great finds over the past few years and wanted to share my favorites.
Rustic Wood Basket:
My mom used it to store tools in her garage and was going to throw it away. I love it to stack up my throw blankets in next to the fireplace.
Vintage Chair, Antique Jewelry Stand, and Fancy Plate:
I don’t even remember where I found this abandoned chair. I gave it a coat of white paint and use it as an endtable in my living room. The jewelry stand and plate were from Grandma. I use them to hold a vase of flowers (or gold painted branches in the winter).
Vases and Endtable:
These are my favorite cheap chic find. Although I pretend these vases are royal family heirlooms, I got them at a Hallmark sidewalk sale for $5 each. The table they sit on was another $5, plus a coat of paint.
Bedroom Side Tables:
Straight out of my college dorm room! They were lime green and needed quite a few coats of white spray paint to be rescued. I love having all clean, white accents in my bedroom, so they were a perfect fit.
So I guess I mostly just find stuff and paint it white. But I always try to keep my eyes open and imagine what objects could be!
Do you have any favorite finds in your home?
