thrifty adventures

This has been my biggest thrift purchase ever. Both in size and dollar amount.


I actually saw this little couch last week. And didn't think much of it at the time. But I ended up thinking about it all weekend, dreaming of where I could fit it in my already full house.

So I went back on Monday morning and it was still there. Just sitting there all covered in its majestic purple velvet. With pure Victorian style. Ready to be painted white and covered with new fabric to go in my bedroom. I'll have to find some inspirational pic's to share with you. I am just so excited to get to it!

A little rickety, but such gorgeous details and pretty much intact. Plus, I asked for a better price and got $100 off. And yes, I told my hub that I was going to buy it. He is just worried about when it will be out of his garage.


When I saw this gorgeous face, I could resist no longer. I buy what I love!

That is amazing! I cannot wait to see what you do with it. You said purple, but somehow I had pictured a less royal shade. But that purple, well, it's splendid, isn't it?

Katie Jean, it's spectacular! Not too sure about covering up that gorgeous wood with paint, but can't wait to see what you do with it! What a great find! And thanks for taking the time to comment on my mug rug swap - Carla did do a wonderful job and I love them!
