Hobnail milk glass lamp and perforated lampshade

Hey There!

While I'm definitely one to "ooh" and "aah" down the aisles at Target and West Elm, there's something refreshing about looking at a space and being unable to completely replicate it. I've grown more and more to love this style so as I redecorated bits and pieces of my bedroom, thrifted lighting came in.

The first piece was the ceiling light. The short story of this light is Brynne found it and being the awesome person that she is, shipped it to me upon my request. It's perfect in every way imaginable.

The next piece that came in is the hobnail milk glass and wood table lamp. I found it at the Goodwill (I freaking love that place! Didn't know I had one so close until recently) for $5 and the size is perfect and I enjoy the unique look.

And the last piece I brought into the space is this perforated lamp shade. I just picked it up last weekend. I'd seen these before online but never in person. It's so pretty and girly. The contrast with the sleek modern lamp is a treat.

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.

  1. That lamp is great! I love milk glass and have seen it mixed with metals but never with wood. Cool find. There were lots of great boho finds in the feed this week I love those plant hangers, they look like something I've seen at Urban Outfitters.
