I found this old decorating book as I was going through my grandmother's belongings. I haven't read it yet, but I'd like to see what the experts were advising back then.

I'm turning a bedroom in our new-to-us house into my workspace. You can see the before pics of what I call "the disco room."
I wrote in this post about ordering a desk from Target, but unfortunately, it arrived really damaged and we sent it back the next day. We decided to not order nicer furniture online - and I didn't want to pay furniture store prices, so back to craigslist and found this desk....
It will be perfect even though I feel I paid a bit too much. Lesson learned and now I have a better plan for buying off craigslist.
And at a garage sale I picked up these...
I can use them for my lights!
an interesting shelf unit for our house!
And here is my BIGGEST, BESTEST THRIFTY FIND EVER....
a brushed nickel kitchen sink faucet for $2!!!!!!
Yes, used, but has all parts and looks good. It's still in the box since
the hub says it's a winter project. I would even say this find is
better than the vases and Thirty-One tote
I love getting a great deal and finding that special piece that catches
my eye and says "must-have!"
So how about you? What are some of your great frugal finds lately?
