headboards and chandeliers

i hit the jackpot thrifting last week - finding good stuff is a better high than drugs!

i got accepted to be a vendor at the revival in atlanta this summer and my festival brain has been spinning. i took a break from festivals this past year because of some unfortunate experiences, but when i read about this one, i knew i had to give it a go.

so last week, joy and i headed to one of our secret locations (actually it's two thrift stores right next to one another). not many people venture here because it isn't in the greatest part of atlanta, but really, it is all in your mindset.

this headboard was my find of the year. why, you might ask? well, because it is $5. yes, $5 for the head board and foot board combined. i went right out and bought some lovely yellow and grey chalk paint and i cannot wait to give this piece a make over.

the other thing i have sworn off is chandeliers. i really love giving them new life, but it is a logistics thing for me - they just don't travel well. but, i am going back on this break as well. one is a brass and white ceramic chandelier and the other brass one is a 3 tier chandelier. it is huge and beautiful. i plan on spraying it 3 consecutive colors of blue to give it the ever trendy ombre look.


  1. I can't wait to see those chandelliers all done up!!

  2. You are a trip! Old habits die hard. Can't wait to see the finished products. You have your work cut out for you missy.

  3. I am loving all of your finds! I am so glad that you are doing chandeliers again because you do such a fabulous job! We are going to be doing some local festivals so I hope to see you out there! :)

  4. Hadn't heard about Revival but it sounds awesome (and super close to my house) and I'll bet your secret thrifting spots are close too! Found you through Artful Blogging which kind of cracked me up since I've lived on Jefferson Ave in East Point for 5 of the last 7 years. Loving your blog :)


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. i love reading each and every one and am thrilled you decided to visit linwood avenue!
