Thrift Shop Booty

A few weeks ago, I popped in Goodwill to see if they had anything I needed.  I spotted this wicker queen headboard for $15.00.  I was on the fence about it, and we have only one queen bed.  But, I bought it anyway because I wanted to see it in place.

That place is the guest room.  And I didn’t love it.  Perhaps if I had painted it a fun color, but not with all the visual clutter on the shelves.  Handy Sammy didn’t like it either, so I returned it for store credit.


But I did keep a wooden bull statue Ev picked out.


And a wooden bison Christmas ornament for 79 cents.  I just cut the looped string off and nailed it in my mini gallery wall.


And then there’s this beauty.  Five bucks, but I didn’t get it.  I asked Ben and he said we didn’t need another lone chair, especially one so involved.


I did come home with a chair.  This brown vinyl rolling chair is perfect for my desk.  Super comfy and in perfect condition for only $3.99!


My first impression (at the store) was to paint it à la Little Green Notebook.  Now that I see it in the space, I’m second guessing it.  Sure, it would be super fun, but I kind of like the almost leather look.  Not with the current orange oak cabinets, but those won’t stay forever.  To paint, or not to paint?  What would you do?

  1. I agree with msot of these other ladies, paint the desk/cabinets and keep the chair this color. Then maybe after a while you’ll decide it needs to be changed.
