Thrifty shopping!!!

Today I decided to share some of my thrifty shopping this past week and since we just finished building my budget is almost nothing! Still I must confess I've always loved thrifty shopping it excites me to find something I love and not pay full price!!!

This clearance find is for my daughters room and because the glass was broken I got it for $9 at Hobby Lobby!
 I needed some lamps and what I could find was so expensive so I stopped by a thrift store in town and found these for $5! I just need to find some thrifty shades now!
 This mirror I found in another thrift store in town and let me say he was very proud of his prices, but I just kept checking back with him until he finally came down! He wanted $40 to begin and I got it for $15, it's very heavy and has it's original mirror. I needed it for our powder room so it will be painted either glossy white or silver.
This mirror will be for my master bedroom and I got it at Hobby Lobby it was marked down from $99 to $20 and the girl  gave me another 10% off! I'm not sure about the color though!

This find was from Hobby Lobby clearance aisle, it's original price was $59 marked down to $12,  but I got it for $9 and I'm a happy camper because I always wanted one of these for a fireplace mantle and now I have two mantles to decorate!
I'm thinking of giving it a color wash in a cream  or gray, what do you think? See those cabinets they have to primed and painted to go on either side of my fireplace, I'll post pics when there done!

Well that's it for today I'm off to do some painting!!!
