Thrifty Finds

I'm back with some more thrift store treasures. I headed back to my new favorite store Savers, that I first posted about here. (For my KC girls, it's the one out South. The one in OP is not nearly as big.)

My first find was this silver-plated small serving platter-



I polished it up and placed it on our dining room table with a few mini-candle holders from Crate & Barrel.


The second steal was this sweet vintage table runner-


Which I set on our bar cabinet-



And finally, I picked this little chair up-

It was marked $7.99 but I got it 25% off as it was their 'household items' sale day. Sweet! It was in good condition but the microsuede was pretty dirty and needed to be replaced.

I picked up some burlap fabric for $2.99/yard (ignore Charlie's paw)-


and got to work-


I doubled up the burlap for complete coverage.

Less than $10 and 20 minutes, I had a perfect new chair for my new desk (part of a larger reveal coming soon).
