Thrifted Wall Art

thrift score thursday12

For this week’s Thrift Score Thursday, I’m taking a trip down memory lane. Because sometimes I do a lot of thrifting at once and I forget to share the finds with you sweet friends.

The first is a set of sconces. The look like wood with a really cool woven detail, but they’re plastic. I picked them up and put them down multiple times before I finally took them to the register. I have a thing for sconces and excuses to pull out more cacti candles.

And this wall was still looking pretty lonely. I can’t remember if I ever shared that piece of art. Beautiful wood frame and a print of a kilim rug. How perfect, right? But the wall was looking barren nonetheless, so I went back to the thrift store with that in mind.

barren wall plus a love for thrifted decor means a mission to fill it slowly by searching through every second hand shop in town

And I found this really unique woven fan. The sticker stated that it was made in the Philippines. It doesn’t appear to be very old but the loops and curves really won me over with their pretty look.

I still have some more work to do on this side. I’m not sold on keeping the trunk of toys in this spot. So I’m leaving it alone while I work on the bathroom and dining room. Just in case the right furniture piece pops up that’ll fill the space out more nicely, you know?

Score any good wall art recently? Be sure to tag it with #thriftscorethursday. You know I wanna see!


This record console was a $40 thrift store find. Then my smart and handy hubby fixed it up so it plays vinyl, radio, and streams blue tooth from my phone so I can listen to pandora or my tunes. Then! He wired speakers throughout the house. Boom! It's amazing! And thank you for the recent tags, cool chicas @uptick_interiorstyling, @cccoombs @eclectic.leigh!

    that record cabinet is a great find! I was on the hunt for one for my brother, almost got him one, and it got bought out from under me while I was texting him a photo of it to make sure he wanted it.
