Thrift Scores for Decorating my Son's Room

Hey guys, Phew the week is kind of flying by. It's probably because next week is going to be pretty intense for the next 6 weeks! What do you mean by that, you ask? (pretend you're curious!) It's another round of One Room Challenge!

So naturally you can expect that I've been thrifting for other spaces of my home, right? Yeah, I'm terrible about this staying focused thing. For thrift score thursday this week, I'm going to share some fun thrifted finds I've picked up for the makeover of my son's room. Coming next fall. Goodness I have a bad case of Decorating ADD but I can't help myself when I find perfect pieces for a space.

If you're a regular you'll have seen this mirror's makeover as "Sunshower" wall art.


And then there's this cute owl basket that will also end up as wall art.

I found this rather large Native American statue and he and I love it.


And finally... Isn't this clock perfection?


Let's dive into my favorite pieces from the #thriftscorethursday feed:

That wraps up the thrift celebration here today. Be sure you visit and give me a follow on Instagram because I do, always, feature my features there as well. @adesignerathome. And the fun doesn't stop here. If you haven't been by to visit them yet, there are 3 other hosts of this fab party and they are the bomb dot com.

Here’s The Rules!

  • We want you to participate! Hit up your local thrift stores, craigslist, yard sales, estate sales, side of the road, anything! Thrifty doesn’t necessarily mean from a thrift store. We want to see your good deals, wacky finds and treasures.

  • Don’t feel like you need to save those finds for Thursdays! Yes, features are shared on our blogs and Instagram on Thursdays, but we’re all checking in on (and using!) the hashtag all week long. So, when you see/find it, feel free to share it!

  • Want to get featured? Add the #thriftscorethursdsay hashtag, Follow the hosts (@the_gathered_home, @primitiveandproper, @adesignerathome and @maggieoverbystudios) and tag a friend to play along, too!

  • Each week, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Brynne from The Gathered Home, Maggie from Maggie Overby Studios and Myself (A Designer At Home) will pick a favorite thrift score or two to feature! So please note that by linking up with #thriftscorethursday, you are giving us permission to share your finds via social media or on our blogs.

  5. I love thrifting as well! But usually for items that I can use as is because I don't have an eye for DIYing things like your sun shower wall art. Good Luck on the ORC!
