Furnishing Your Home with Pre-Loved Finds

It’s no secret that there’s much treasure to be found at your local Goodwill shops. When I opened my photography office back in 2011, I needed to furnish  it on a budget. While perusing Goodwill at lunch one day, I discovered two matching lampstable lamps for $4 each! I initially thought I would just give them a nice coat of glossy, white paint… but after tossing on some inexpensive shades from HomeGoods, I never did, and I’m glad! You see, after having that office for two years, I decided to go back to working from home, and in that time we were also building a little beach getaway and were needing to furnish that space. The lamps that I’d previously loved in my office became a perfect addition to our new living room!


In addition to those lamps coming from my old office, so did the end tables & coffee table… both of which were found at the Cornelius ReStore. The coffee table ($40) was actually a dining table my husband cut down and the end tables were a whopping $7 each! The two chairs were from Craigslist for $25 each, I sewed drop cloth slipcovers over them. I love it when my pre-loved items, find the perfect spot multiple times!   lamps-1005
