Yellow and Grey Make Me Happy!

Another form of creativity that I have always enjoyed is decorating my home with the bargains I find at the Thrift Store. Almost everything in my house is second hand or repurposed. Below are pics of my red dinning room. It served us well for six years but it was time for something different.

Every single thing in this room is pieced together from my thirfty finds and cohesively brought together with a lovely coat of swiss mocha paint. Table $100 at Salvation Army, Buffet $25 yard sale, hutch $100 Grayslake flea market, two sewing cabinets flanking the fire place $25 each from the Volo antique barn, chairs $10 each thift store.

The chandelier was a find at the Rosemont flea market and came with two smaller chandeliers that hang in my foyer and mudroom. All purchased for the sweet price of $40.

Love the colors of this room and how it makes the room feel so much bigger. The splash of yellow scattered about the room really pop with the shades of gray. I love that my brassy chandelier is now a glossy black. That was a bold move and it turned out great!

Picture above the fire place was a Rosemont flea market find $10, vase with flowers thirft store for $2, candle holders are a mix of thrift store and Pottery Barn, clock was from the thrift store for $1 and I blew up a clock face picture and put it inside the glass, bird cage from the Grayslake flea market $2.

The glass candlestick lamps came from the thrift store for $10. I just bought new lampshades from Tuesday Morning for $6 each.

Everything in the new room was in the red room except the end chairs. I found these cool chairs at a thrift store for $50 for the pair. We painted them and reupholstered them. Love these chairs!

Happy decorating!
