thrifted :: coral

5_thursday

we remodeled our bathroom awhile back and i was looking for something to put on one of the empty shelves in a cabinet we bought. i wanted to do something very clean and white since the bathroom is very light and bright. i looked online for some coral and found some beautiful pieces, but at $70 minimum, it wasn't really fitting into my plan.

then, only a few days later, i find this piece at a garage sale for $2! (and that included the stand!) i wasn't so sure i was crazy about the stand at first, but now, i'm loving it.

it seems to fit right in with the rest of the room. (which maybe someday i'll actually photograph)

funny how i found exactly what i was looking only a few days after i was researching it online and being disappointed by the prices. have i mentioned yet how much i LOVE thrifting? well, i do. you can find just about anything if you're patient enough.

I swear, you see things at garage sales that I have never ever seen. ever. It always makes me wonder what else was at the sale - and what the owners were like...
Nice find!

It was meant to be! I love when things happen that way. It looks great on your shelf!
