The mirror, the hats and the pillows all came from Goodwill. The chrome lamp from Home Goods.
Next that secretary was purchased from Craigslist for $75 and has been a very efficient piece for such a small space. I plan on doing a make-over & modernizing the secretary and the chair a few projects down the line. If you want to see a fabulous secretary makeover go here.
The chair was from Gracie's thrift and the turquoise and glass vases came from Marshalls.
I just have a couple more pictures to add to this collection and then after I frame some of them we will call this wall collage good. My favorite one is the picture of my aunt in 1944. I bought the lithograph of the two women for $5.00 and after doing a little research on it may be worth close to $1000.00. It is signed and numbered by the French artist.
All of the items in the secretary were purchased @ thrift stores except for some of the trims. Oh how I love my trims.
Love all of the cork top containers.

It wouldn't be polite if I didn't sit down to break in my new work spot by first thanking all of the discount and thrift stores.haha.
I'm so excited for my very own little spot!!!
I finally got the below book and I can't recommend it enough. It will really get a treasure hunters pulse up. The pictures are beautiful and it is hard to believe many of the refined and modern spaces featured were decorated by those who frequent flea markets and thrift stores.
