Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Todays finds are very different from my usual fare. I found some awesome pieces of furniture.

The two white chairs are my most recent addition to my living room. I got them both for $10.00. I also found the rug at the same garage sale for $15.00. We went to this sale at just the right time because they were getting ready to finish up and just wanted to get rid of their stuff.  I took off the slip cover on one chair and left it on the other. I can't decide if I like it with or without. First I need to see if the slip cover will clean up. That will be the true deciding factor.


Here is a close up of the chair that does not have the slip cover on it right now. 


After I bought the chairs I went home and went to the Ikea website because the lady who sold me the chairs said she bought them there. I had a nice surprise waiting for me when I visited the site. There was my exact same chair with a $129.00 price tag on it! I was so shocked. I just paid $10.00 for the same thing, and I got two chairs. I think I did pretty good. I thought about buying a new slip cover for the chair, but they cost $50.00, so i am just going to enjoy the chairs and if they get dirty I will just remember that I only paid $5.00 and their are other chairs in the world that could replace them. 



Here is a peak of my other find, but because it is so heavy we are waiting for my brother to bring us a dolly so we can get it into the apartment. Will hopefully post tonight or tomorrow pictures of this amazing find.


Just to tease you on another post I am working on here is a sneak peak of my apartment decorated for Christmas.


Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!

Smiles,
The Joyful Thrifter

  2. love the chair and like the one with the slip cover the best. I have a pair of ORANGE rocking chairs same shape as that but with button tuffed backs .... orange is not my choice of colors (cast offs from when relative moved) I tied queen size sheets around them ... wish I could find white slipcovers that would fit.

  4. Those chairs are amazing. Gotta love the price. I say use them and when they are marked and dirty, get rid of them. Can't go wrong at $5 a chair. So jealous.

  6. Great chairs! I like the slipcovered chair the best. I wonder if you could dye them once they get dirty or stained?

    I had some luck with chairs this week, too. If you get a chance to stop by my blog, you can see my deals.

  9. Thanks for sharing. Your chairs are awesome either way, what a deal. And the rug looks great with your couch and the chairs. I really love the coffee table as well. Is that a thrifting find?

  15. I think, style wise, the chairs look better without the slip covers. The couch has similar legs to the chairs when the cover is off.
