Today, I’m sharing 12 thrift store finds styled in my home for Summer.
It is currently summer.
Slowly the weather is getting warmer, here in Seattle.
Along with the changes in the air, I am feeling the pull to create light and airy spaces in my home.
One of the places I love to get inspiration is at my local thrift store.
I’m so excited to share what I found with you.
Here are my 12 thrift store finds styled in my home for summer.
#1. Large green jar – $6.99
What amazes me about finding beautiful things like this jar is the quality.
It’s hard to tell in the photo but this is a very large thick jar.
It is a beautiful vintage green.
I think it had a lid at one time.
The jar looks perfect alongside the large fireplace mantle that I painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint in the color Old White.
Finding something similar at Homegoods or Target would cost $15.00 or more. So this was a score!
#2. Tall grey candlestick – $3.99
On the other side of the console, I have a grey candlestick that is around 2 feet.
I found this the same day as the jar above.
It was one of those finds that didn’t require a DIY. Isn’t that nice?
It is painted in the same color as I have in my home. That was an unexpected find.
I love the detailed carving on the wood.
It has a vintage look to it.
Which I love.
Here is a complete view of this corner in my fireside room.
I’m slowly collecting old vintage books that are displayed on the bottom shelf.
I wrote, Summer ’22 on the chalkboard.
Other than the industrial farmhouse console, everything in this photo is thrifted.
#3. Delicate crystal candle holder – $3.99
I saw several of these on my Goodwill shopping trip.
They look so elegant and delicate.
And have a glam to them with the gold trim.
It says Mikasa at the bottom as well as made in Germany.
I looked it up online and found them for $9.99 each on eBay.
So, it was a deal.
#4. Crystal bowl with wicker handle – $7.99
What a unique bowl!
I have never seen a crystal bowl with a wicker handle before!
It is so pretty.
Along with that one, I found a copper planter that I will explain below.
To me, the bowl looked like it needed a plant inside.
#5. Copper oval planter – $3.99
I searched Goodwill looking for something oval to put into the crystal bowl in the photo above.
What intrigued me about this planter is the details in the handles.
It fit perfectly inside the crystal bowl.
I love how this turned out!
The first photo of this blog post shows this crystal bowl and planter with a Basil plant inside.
Sharing it again here.
It’s styled in my breakfast nook.
I love the fresh green leaves of the Basil plant.
Not to mention how amazing it smells as I walk by.
A perfect addition to add to my home for Summer.
#6. Oak vintage clock – $24.99
When I first saw this clock sitting at the front of the thrift store, I almost passed it up.
It is not the look I usually go for.
But after pondering in the line for a bit, I decided to take another look before I checked out.
Ideas started floating in my mind about how I could change it to fit the style of my home.
I brought it home and have some paint to change it into a one-of-a-kind piece.
I’ll share that DIY soon.
#7. Tin frame painted to look like wood -$6.99
I didn’t even hesitate when I saw it laying behind a row of frames at Goodwill.
It had the color to coordinate with some wicker baskets I’m hanging on the wall in my dining room.
Which I will show you later.
I came across a blue floral embroidered piece online.
I took the original art that was inside and replaced it.
They work well together and coordinate with the colors of my home.
Touching it, I couldn’t believe it was tin.
It was painted to look like wood.
I think that is so unusual.
#8. Pack of 11 tapered candles. – $4.99
Buying candles brand new isn’t cheap.
Finding these were perfect.
What a deal, huh? I love this deal.
There are 10 candles in the photo above.
I placed one in the crystal Mikasa candle holder.
The above photo is the price tag for the candles. Pretty cheap!
#9. White milk glass bowl with frog insert for flowers – $7.99
This antique was a find!
It’s unique with the glass floral frog inside.
I plan on finding small flowers to put inside.
Here it is styled on the granite window sill in my kitchen with two hobnail milk glass candle holders on each side.
I love small things like this.
It’s a sweet addition to my home.
What do you think?
#10. White pitcher with tiny hairline cracks – $1.99
This is such a cute pitcher.
The hairline cracks are so subtle.
It gives it an old look like it’s been around a while.
It has a different shape than the ones I’ve seen.
Which is what I like about it.
It fits perfectly with the other white pitcher on this dresser.
I placed some bright pink hydrangeas inside the larger vase.
They look so realistic.
This whole look is simple but has an elegant look with the crystal decanter and matching glasses.
#11. Chunky weathered frame – $3.99
Photographing this frame does not do it justice.
The muted color gives this frame that rustic look that reminds me of the olden days or that it was from a long time ago.
I’m putting it all together with the clock.
Which I will be painting soon.
So, it sits propped for now until I can get that project done.
#12. Second chunky weathered frame – $3.99
This is the last of the thrift store finds I styled in my home for Summer.
Finding two matching frames is rare.
These frames fit perfectly next to the clock.
Sometimes things come together like that.
It’s kind of fun when it does.
I love all of the recent thrift store finds styled in my home for summer.
