Junkin’ finds August 1

The organizer box that I made out of cereal boxes was ok
but this one for $3.00 is much nicer, and roomier
A couple of magazine holders to help keep me organized, for a dollar
Decorative panel moulding for $20! I can’t buy one of the larger ones for less than $20.
4 x 18x23
3 x 14x23
2 x 7x23
The find that I am most excited about is this vintage ironing board for $10. I don’t know if it’s old or if it’s a reproduction. And the little birdie was 99 cents.
The iron work and screws seem to suggest it’s older, but I know that they can also be reproduced. Who cares, I love it.
Lately as I purchase new items and change my place slowly, I’ve noticed that my decor direction is changing. I am really enjoying older/aged items paired with contemporary items. Hmmm…enjoying the journey and I look forward to where it takes me.

Linking up to the following parties:
Frugal Friday's at The Shabby Nest
Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday
Southern Hospitality's Todays Thrifty Treasures
Debbie-Doo's Garage Salen' Partay

  6. I love the ironing board. It makes a wonderful display area. Thanks for shaing.

  7. Thank you for sharing your wonderful treasures. My house reflects a certain junque shoppe chic (riiiiigggghhhttt). Since things cost relatively so little when buying things thrift I find I can change my home decor more often than I otherwise would. Enjoy the journey! And that ironing board is way cool, repro or not..

  8. Love that ironing board. It looks old and as long as you love it, Score!

  9. I have an old ironing board that I use all the time. It's a little more work to fold it up and down and it tends to pinch my fingers and smash my toes, but I just can't trade it in for a new one. My house is a mixture of old and new and I like trying to marry the two styles too.

  10. Love that ironing board! I have a friend that used hers as a sofa table and I have never found one for a good price!
