Thrifty Thursdays #4

Thrifty Thursday is back!  I've been hard at work on a ton of thrifty projects, and can't wait to share them all with you here.

Thanks to everyone who added links last week - let's see if we can break last week's record of 14 posts! 

Here's my thrifty score of the week - another ReStore find. I got an email on Saturday suggesting that I brave the icky rain/sleet weather to visit ReStore because they were offering 20% off the Entire Store! How's a girl supposed to resist that?

 I went looking for old desk drawers that I could upcycle. Found them for $1 each (0.80 after the discount). But that's not even the best deal. My heart started beating a little faster when I turned the corner and saw this:
It was love at first sight.  It reminds me of a bedside table, but it's bigger.  I made up my own "sold" sign and slapped it on it, also removing the price to show to the cashier. I was so afraid someone else would buy it before I could! It's perfectly distressed - better than I could have done if I tried to do it myself.    I'm going to use it in my new shabby chic style studio as a place to display some antique sewing machines and other vintage goodies. Oh, and after the discount, it was $20! I'm going to change out the hardware, so I'll post "after" pictures when she's all done and accessorized.

OK, now it's your turn - what's been happening in your crafty/thrifty world?  Link it up below:

That dresser is much better than the free one i picked up a few years ago; good job.
I didn't have anything new for this week so i linked to an old post about making jewelry from found objects.
