If you’re new to the game #colddeadfingers is a instagram hashtag to show off your favorite thrifted finds. You know, the ones that can only be pried from your cold dead fingers?! It is PACKED with drool worthy, jealously inducing treasures and was previously a hashtag related to guns, so sometimes the occasional picture of George Washington with a Glock will show up.
Man I’m glad we brightened up that hashtag’s life.
Now that everyone is up to speed I have to tell you about my recent couch finds. You might want to sit down for this. I’ve been out of the thrifting game for the last 9 months. Pregnancy and a new babe will do that to a girl. But with the most recent scores I feel like the thrifting gods are luring me back in.
About a month ago I found this little lady. Her fabric is the perfect shade of peachy blush and is in pristine condition…until you flip it around. It’s been totally sunbleached on the back. DANG IT! But still. $30. You cant pass it up.
Then last friday I found the score of a lifetime! Check it out.
$25. Not a typo. TWENTY-FIVE FREAKING DOLLARS!
The seam on one of the cushions is split and the finish is worn off on parts of the couch (weird parts like the fronts and legs, while the arm rests are totally fine) which makes me think that maybe someone was trying to refinish it. It can easily be spruced up with some Danish Oil.
Luckily I’m not the only one thats scored a fab couch lately…
This April I can check off another one of #mels40firsts – I signed up for an upholstery class! I am one step closer to my dream of rescuing ugly flea market finds, restoring them to glory, and selling them in my adorable shop filled with fabulous chairs and coffee, of course. ☕️ This settee was one of my favorite flea market finds. I kept the gold leaf frame as I found it but had the chair reupholstered in a sharp pinstripe navy velvet. It’s by far the best seat in the house.
Okaaaay! Who’s going thrifting today?
