#frugalfashionista: fashioning your favorite rooms 

In moving to Boston I needed a lot of new furniture. I swore I was done with my thrifting phase, however when my sister came to visit she pulled me into a thrifting trip. During this trip I came across two chairs that I saw so much potential for! One being only $4 and the other $2.50!!! I bought paint to re paint and then fabric to re-upholster. And voila after a few hours o had two beautiful chairs for my living room and bedroom!

If anything the fabric cost more than the chairs themselves! Though they weren’t expensive either.

Much love – MA

   
   
I even had extra fabric to make a pillow for my bed

  

#frugalfashionista: thrifted treasures

Thrifting on a New England Sunday. My sister and dad came to visit me in boston during this long Columbus Day weekend and we made a trip to the thrift store to start out our Sunday. 

My finds: 

  
I fell absolutely in love with the charms on this necklace. It perfectly reflects my love for travel. Picking it up was a no brainer!

  
This was what really made my heart jump in excitement. It was a collection of Emily, Anne and Charlotte Bronte books. They were editions from 1922! I have a large place in my heart for classic novels and period films, so this was a heart warming find! 

I also found two pics of furniture for my living room. Those I will share In a later post once they’ve been restored. 

Today was a successful hunt. 

Much love -MA
