Thrift Store Finds

Welcome to another post of thrifty finds. It sure is great to hand over a $10 bill and still get change for 2 awesome pieces to furnish a home.

Like this beautiful swirly wine rack.

Not that I have a collection of wine waiting for storage, but I just couldn't pass up these beautiful metal swirls. It really is pretty all on its own.

I just love swirls!

The nice metal finish goes perfectly with the design so I decided it didn't need any painting.

Price tag: $2.99

I haven't found a place for it yet but there are many other ways besides wine that you could store in the circles.

You can place some rolled up hand towels and add this to a bathroom or hallway area.

And for quilters you could place rolls of yarn in the circles too.

Now, number two:

Ain't she a beaut?

I couldn't pass this up either. The shape reminds me of a ceramic vase.

Just a bit of dusting and touching up and this lamp will be well on its way to a nice piece of home furnishing.

Yeah, that price is the icing on the cake!

I can't wait to get started. Details in my next post!
