Good Will Finds 2023 And How I Styled Them!

You know the days where everything seems to be aligned in your favor. Well, that happened to me on one of my visits to Good Will. It seemed like everywhere I looked there was something I could not pass up. Best of all, I did not have to fix, paint or tweak any of the pieces. They were great just the way they were!

Wait until you see what I found!

I will admit that I passed these vases up the first time. They were beautifully had painted, but I was not a fan of the content on the front.

I went home and told my mother-in-law Audrey about them, and she said just turn them around. I was lucky enough to go back and find both vases and purchased them for $10. This is the backside of the vases, and she was right.

I fell in love with this plate the minute I saw it. I have seen plates like this at Good Will, but never with detailing like this.

What do you see when you look at these?

I saw bookends but as it turns out they are shelves.

A woman was carrying this tray around and I was bummed that I did not get to it first. Then I saw her a few minutes later minus the tray and backtracked until I found it. Yea!

Lastly this beast of a mirror. The frame is wood, and the edging on the mirror is made of wrought iron. Hence the nickname beast because it is very heavy. I plan on replacing my current mirror in the foyer with this but because it is so heavy, I need to make sure I have the right hardware before hanging it up.

Now the Styling!

A trick I use often is placing a one-dimensional piece on a stand. It immediately becomes a statement piece that can be used anywhere in your home. I chose the dining room, but it could have gone on a side table, shelf. kitchen counter etc.

For now, I am using these as bookends, but I reserve the right to use them as shelves in the future.

I placed the vases on the buffet in my dining room and the colors go perfectly with the painting and the buffet.

I am excited about projects I am currently working on and can’t wait to share them with you all!
