A thrifting we will go

I was able to hit two of my regular thrift store stops this week and wound up with a couple of treasures.  I'm always primarily in search of furniture but this week's finds were different.

I got these two great shabby framed floral prints.  I toned down the gold on the frames with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old Ochre.  These measure approximately 19x22.













I also found this great frame - it measures 11x13.
I toned down the gold on this one as well.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and then used the dark wax.  I'm planning to sell the frame, but I must admit I didn't put a price tag on it yet - that sometimes leads to items finding a spot in my home!

Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend!

I am fascinated by that bird on the architectural piece off to the left of the 2nd frame. I hope you will post something about that.

Nice finds Stephanie. I especially like that frame, one of my passions. Thanks for visiting me.

The frame looks lovely. I hadn't seen one in blue before, what a great idea.
