Two of a kind

Have you ever heard of the ReStore Discount Home Improvement Center?  Did you know the proceeds from these stores help support Habitat for Humanity in our community?  I am proud to say these two beauties came from the ReStore and I can't even take the credit for them, but I really wanted to.  Nope, Mr.B found them one day while out thrifting working.  He sent me a picture of them and I immediately feel in love.  I couldn't call him back fast enough to tell him to not let go of them and RUN to the checkout as fast as he could.  He ended up paying $8.00 per lamp, oh yeah...that's right, $16.00 big ones.  Did you notice the light bulbs on those babies and they work too, we scored, didn't we?  I almost feel bad, nah..
Almost identical
Look what I found at Target a couple of
days later. Can you even believe it?

I picked up the shades at Target
for $12.00 a piece. 

All cleaned up and dressed!

Total cost for the set: Lamp x 2= $16.00, Shades $24.00, plus one happy lady= $40.00 and  some change, however remember one lamp base @ Target was $39.99.  This is why I love thrifting.  Have a great weekend!

  3. I ::literally:: just died. Why cant I ever find anything that cute at ReStore????


  4. I know Katie, you can understand why I didn't want my hubby to let go of those babies! It's hit or miss at our ReStore(he found those in a different city), just like thrifting and sometimes you hit the jackpot while other times nothing. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a good rest of the week.

  5. I love those lamps- what a great find! BTW, I really like the nest and bird cage in the bottom picture.
