thrifting galore

Almost every other Saturday, my mom and I goes out thrifting. And I enjoy it very much. After many years, we found something in common and it became our quality time together.

So last Saturday we found this.

$25 antique worn down dresser. Mom said it was ugly and expensive (for $25!!!) and she didn't want to haul it but I had a vision so insisted.
I am so used to restoring furnitures I can do it with my eyes closed!

Voila! After about an hour! And my mom wants it so bad!
It looks perfect in my studio!
Inside are my fabrics and flowers and other trims.

My 'new' antique chair we are fighting over. I love it next to my fireplace.

You can never have enough ornate mirrors! I want more! This is now in the living room, remember, I took the one that was here for the bathroom. I'm still thinking if I should paint this black. What do you think?

You can never have enough glass lamps too!
Another vintage mirror!
