Deals, Deals, Deals!

So I've been keeping my eye out for a tv stand for Emily's room redo. 
Here's a reminder of what her room looks like
I think if we rotate the furniture around a little and have the tv against the big wall it might flow a little better.  Well I seriously hit at Diversity Thrift yesterday and the price was I-N-S-A-N-E
You all are seriously not going to believe this!  I searched for the tag but I think they took it at checkout.
 I didn't think you would believe me!

Here she is in her current state of "Loads of Potential!"

Look at that beautiful bamboo detail!
The campaign style hardware details on the corners.
The bamboo pulls
(was hoping the 4th was in the cabinet, no luck)

Can't you hear her screaming "Paint Me!" Paint Me!"

The wicker part-not a fan.  But will look FAB with a little fabric mod podged on top to cover that!

So you want to know the price, right! 


Is that not the most insane thing you have heard !!!
 It was actually $5 but all furniture at Diversity Thrift is (or was yesterday) 25% off!

Can't you see this up against her newly painted paneling with a gallery wall behind it!?! 

Just to compare prices I found this similar one on ebay for $615!
but using this one as inspiration!

If you live in the Richmond area RUN to Diversity Thrift.  Their prices are INSANE!


  1. Wow that is a great price!

  2. Amazing deal. Your prices are great in Richmond.

  3. That is crazy! I seriously can't believe what a deal you found! Man I wish I lived there still!

  4. Are you serious? That is the most insane thing I have ever heard...

  5. It's almost worth it to fly to Richmond to get a deal like that. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  6. I absolutely love your blog! I was in Northern VA this week and passed thru Richmond as I was driving back to NC, I thought about stopping at one of the thrift stores you mention in your blogs hahaha...then I remembered my car is already full. You have quite a talent..I'm inspired!

  7. I just read your post about no-reply bloggers and I fixed mine..Thanks!

  8. Oh my...that is breath taking!

  9. I can't believe you gave out your secret shopping spot! I would have kept that place to myself...I'm selfish like that:) Can't wait to see the big reveal!

  10. Stop the presses! Say what? $3.75! I would have ran out of the store with that thing on my back and flinging my toonies at the clerk before they realized the mistake!

  11. My dear, you have the best "thrifting luck" of anyone I virtually know :0)

  12. I am looking for a new TV stand, too! I'll have to run down to DT tomorrow! Amazing! Hope I have some luck!

  13. I am your newest follower, Kassandra from Coffee and their Kisses. I seen you on American Crafter and I had to come over. A girl after my own heart, I love thrifting! I'm half tempted to come to VA to go thrift shopping lol! If I ever get some extra money, then I so am! I have an old record player that looks like this and I was trying to decide how in the heck to hide that ugly wicker, thanks for the idea. I despise wicker with a passion lol. Anyways, I'm rambling on now. Have a great night hun!
