Showing My Thrifty Side

In December I made an impromptu trip to Goodwill. Every now and then I find a good or even great deal. That day I found a great deal. I've been looking for a furniture piece to place at the end of my bed. Low and behold, there it was, for only $10.

The pattern is lovely. As you can see the fabric is worn on the seat and in desperate need of cleaning. Even then, the upholstery may still likely be stained in a few places. In that event, I will make a slip cover for it. I've been doing a bit of research and believe that I can make one that is true to the lovely lines and curves of the piece. I'm VERY pleased with my find.


  1. I love it and it's perfect for the end of a bed. I like the fabric.

  2. Ooooh, you lucky girl you. That is indeed a great find. Show us again if you decide to recover.

    Bravo. You have a great eye.

  3. I do love that pattern. Very classic.

  4. you are certainly lucky to have found a great piece...and that price is phenomenal! keep us updated if you cover it!
