Thrifty Tuesday

Here is the vintage bedroom set that I got an Estate sale this weekend. It has four pieces and was $60. Right now hubbie is not visioning it as a good buy. The good thing is it is going in Bella's room and my little mini boho is loving it. We are leaning toward an off white color. I love how people make shabby chic but not sure I can pull off the distressed look without looking used. There is such a trick to it or maybe I am just over thinking it.

Here is the side table…
We are off to get a new snail today. I need to see how long these guys are going to last - he did not do a very good cleaning job. Maybe we should get 2. So far the day has been spent letting the dogs in and out. I think this is their new game. Bark inside to go outside to bark outside. Silly girls. Tootles.

I LOVE it! Great lines! What a great find at a great price!
Are the other 2 pieces a footboard & headboard?
Now you need to come down here and find me a deal like that. :)

What a great buy! I also have a few items I want to paint white but have not started on them yet. I will need to check with you later to see how you started this project.

Hugs :)

I can see the shabbiness/chic-ness of this! Tell Carlos to have faith!
