Home Decor on a Budget : Thrift Store Finds

I am a true lover of what my family calls “home shopping” in short This is basically when you change around all the junk you already have… 😉 I do get bored with the way things look around our house so I like to have different artwork or decor to change out. As we all know artwork can be so expensive! And as much as I love certain pieces at this point in my life I can not justify that kind of investment; so off to the thrift store I go 🙂

As with anything thrift store related it takes time to build a collection that you love so don’t rush yourself and also remember to see the potential in pieces. Like the crane painting in the nursery – it had a horrible cheap yellowing frame, but I just could not get over the painting so I bought it for a whopping 3$ and spray painted the frame. Now it looks like such custom artwork and I get compliments on it all the time. Also the first picture of the couple kissing was just a poster that I put into a mat and frame. The sconces on either side of it are also from the thrift store originally from Crate and Barrel with the tags still on them!

I am not ashamed to say that most of our artwork and home decor items are thrifted. I love to get inspiration from the “big box stores” (target, ikea, etc.) but I don’t like having the same things as everyone else. So when I am out and about I do take a lot of photos for inspiration in thrifting, crafts, or whatever else!

What are your go to places for unique items?

Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday!



Decor Trend : Gothic Chic

Gothic Chic

I know what you are thinking, excuse me Gothic? yes, Gothic, and I am not referring to the phase you had in high school, I am talking about a breath taking decor trend! I am so in love with this style that it is all I look at on Pinterest.

It not only incorporates rich deep colors, but also vintage and modern pieces. There are many details in this decorating style while still maintaining its elegance. I also love that there are elements of nature in each design.

I am itching to use this as inspiration for a room design, DIY, or maybe even my cube at work!

I would love to hear about your favorite decor trends currently and what makes you gravitate to them

I hope you are having a great day wherever you are 🙂
