Thrifty Finds for condo...

I don't know about you but I am ready for the week-end! We had a few days of rain this week so I used that time to do some more work in the condo and go thrifting. I had found a dresser at Goodwill back in the fall  so I finally got it finished. The plan was to use it in the guest room but Mr. Vintage got a bigger TV so I decided it would work as an entertainment center.

Like everything that comes into the condo,  it got cleaned and painted white!

The pull handles were original but two were broken so I replaced them with wooden knobs to match the knobs on the top drawers... well almost. I found some very close for half price at Hobby Lobby. It will also have to do double duty to house some linens in the bottom drawers. Space is a premium around here.
The decorative items are all thrift items . The little Easter tree is the one I showed in a post earlier undecorated. I found the little eggs at the Dollar Tree.

This lamp was free. It was in my attic back home and was an ugly brass. I sanded it lightly and spray painted it with Rustoleum white.

The picture frames and tissue holder were earlier Goodwill finds. I love the vintage look of the larger one.

Finally, I found this little cherub wooden box thrifting this week. I'm sure I'll find a place for it.
