I haven't been thrifting ALOT, not like I used to several years ago, but I still get that urge every now and then.
The thrifting animal in me will never die, not when I find things like this bamileke stool at my local 90% off store (otherwise known as the Goodwill outlet). It was worn as if it's been sitting outdoors and looked like children had been doodling on it. It was $2.99. It went into my cart immediately.
It was so similar to this bamileke table for almost $1500 at Jayson home and garden.
Or this one for almost $1,000 at Pieces Atlanta (one of my favorite inspirations).
Where was I going to put it? What color would I paint it? Who cares. It was going in my cart. Now it awaits the rejuvenating touch of my paint brush. It isn't perfect. Even after a coat of paint, it will have it's cracks, but for $2.99? Sold!
I love this sizzling red version. It's tempting to paint it some hot tropical color, like coral, yellow, turquoise, kelly green, fuschia or royal blue. But I'm leaning towards beachy white right now.
What do you think? Bold color? Or classic white?
