I am over the moon to share my new installment of “Using Thrift Store Finds For A..” series. If you haven’t seen my other posts, you should check them out and other thrift store makeover projects on my Project Gallery Page. I am still in the process of finalizing all the minor details of my dining room, but you will be able to get a sneak peak of the dining room buffet table. You will see that I’m going for a coastal cottage vibe in the dining room and I styled the buffet table using thrift store finds.
A few more of my thrift store finds were used along with the tray to decorate the buffet table. I found the small apothecary jar last week for $3.00. This was a little pricey for a thrifty find, but I knew I was going to have that jar on my mind if I didn’t purchase it. The green bottle is an old red wine vinegar bottle that I had saved for almost 2 years in the back of a cabinet. I loved the shape of the bottle and couldn’t bring myself to throw it out. The size of the bottle is perfect for a bud vase.
The blue glass candle holder was a buy from HomeGoods just this week. I love the cerulean blue color against the ivory white candle. They only had one size for the candle holder, but I think I’ll pick up another candle holder if I happen to come across another size. How great does that tray look with those three decor elements?
On the opposite side of the table, I used a big glass vase I found in the clearance section of HomeGoods for $9.00. The flowers are from Target, but I hope to clip some branches off the tree outside that is just about to sprout some flowers. Hopefully, the tree will start to bloom next week. I added the IKEA lantern and decided to go against the traditional pillar candle insert. I chose to use a small thrift store pitcher that was filled with candlesticks. The pitcher was previously on the entryway table, but it looks much nicer within the lantern.
I am so glad that the buffet table decor came together. Did you notice that I also changed the knobs on the buffet table? I saw these clear knobs on my way out of HomeGoods. They were $7.99 for a set of 4. The coral art on the wall was also a buy from HomeGoods. I am definitely HomeGoods Happy with the overall look! The main wall needs final touches and then I’ll be sharing the big reveal. Check out the difference thus far.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have found some inspiration in using thrift store finds for your buffet table.
