If you have been following me, you know I am a thrift store addict and love to turn trash into treasure. I randomly pop into these second hand shops or thrift stores when I am out and about. Continue my journey with me and I will teach you that this can be achieved by all. I will also teach you what to and what not to buy.
The main reason for this post is to share my most recent find. Once it is finished, it is a piece that Pottery Barn or Anthropologie would be selling for a ridiculous price of $1,500-$2,500. I found it at Goodwill for $32.50. It was originally $65, but had the 1/2 price color tag.
The piece is a SOLID wood hutch. It is a vintage piece from Bassett furniture. The drawers are dove tailed and open and close with ease. All of the original drawer and door pulls are still there. The piece is nothing but perfect.
Let's do a little comparison. Remember, I paid $32.50 for my piece. Here is a unique piece from Anthropologie....
The price for this is $2,998.00 It can be viewed HERE. The size is substantially smaller than my hutch. Yes, there are some birds decopodged in the background, but this look can be achieved on your own.
Here is a piece from Pottery Barn. The bottom alone is $999.00. But no worries, you can purchase the top for an additional $899.00. You can see the details HERE.
Please know this post is not saying "ha ha, I got this for $32.50". What I am saying is that I would love for everyone to follow me on my journey and learn how to find pieces such as this and make them over on your own for next to nothing.
The makeover on this piece has already begun. The majority is done and I am excited to share the reveal with you tomorrow....
