Thrifted Table//Fall Inspiration

I just have to pinch myself when I see treasures like the table above.  I feel my heart start to race as I look around to see if anyone else is eyeing the prize that sits only inches in front of me.  Luckily, in the case of this find ~ no one was. 

I snagged this HEAVY old iron table for $16.00 ~ and it's sitting on my back patio.  I pulled up a couple of chairs and topped them with some linen pillows for extra comfort.  And then...

...With fall finally arriving to Texas (kind of), I can't think of a better way to complete this spot, and usher in autumn, than by adding some easy fall touches to this setting.

Simple things make up the fall vignette:  A white pumpkin, an Antique hydrangea, a recycled gallon jug, an ironstone platter and white candles.

Thrifting is one of those things that continues to surprise me.  It's not that I go that often, but invariably when I do, I luck into something wonderful like this table.  I have high hopes that this thrifted find will include a cup of coffee or tea and some long, lingering conversations with family and friends.  I'd love to hear about your favorite thrifted find ~ Happy Tuesday!

  1. i love the colour of the hydragea xxx

  2. verfy nice Dana did you have to paint it or was it already done? I take it you drive a pickup truck.. ha!

  3. Me too Aimee ~ hydrangeas are my favorite flower and I do believe the antique variety is my fave as well! I couldn't get over their limey green color with purple tips. XO

  4. Thanks Gary! I bought the table in it's current condition ~ all I did was give it a good scrub. Yep ~ a truck and a good ole mini van (the seats all fold down into the floor). Maybe not the hottest vehicles on the block, but hey they work for me. :)
