Brass and Wood Tones End Table Styling

Hey guys! Recently I've been working on lots and lots of little projects around the house. Lots of puttering between things that from the surface don't look like a lot is evolving. But I'm chipping away and slowing refining and adjusting things to match what I've dreamed for these spaces for years.

Today I wanted to share a look at the end tables in my living room that just got a slightly new look thanks to 2 recent thrift scores. 1. The brass thing with legs. Reminds me of a trivet but the legs are much too tall... or are they? And 2. The cute wooden box with coaster "drawers." I love the little hardware and am a die hard lover of wood. So it came home of course!

The tray is also thrifted, the basket I've had for 10 years originally purchasing it at the Dollar Tree, the woven bowl and metallic "planter" (actually a votive, or a vase? Maybe? Now I realize I don't remember) were purchased a while back on clearance at Target. And the lamp I found second hand via eBay.

Now that I've shared my recent thrift scores, here are my favorites from the feed:

Wanna Play? 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.

All Instagramed out yet? I sure hope not! Because you’re not finished. Yup, you’ve got more thrift scores to look at. I know you’re not disappointed. Ha. Click on my beautiful cohost’s faces below to check out what they’ve scored and featured.
