Thrifty Home Tour | Hallway
This post is sponsored by Goodwill SA
I first fell in love with thrift stores when I was in middle school. I loved that I could buy almost an entire new-to-me wardrobe for around $30. I also began collecting knick-knacks to decorate the walls of my wild teenage bedroom (I had a big think for 60’s and 70’s zodiac ephemera). I’ve carried on both the clothes and home decor thrift store shopping well into adulthood, and I thought I’d start a series of posts sharing how I’ve used my favorite thrifty bits in our home. Today we’ll start with the hallway (because it was the cleanest!).

Although they’re not being used to their full potential, my husband built these shelves around our bathroom door about a year ago (there’s another built-in on the other side that was original with the house).
My favorite thrifty finds on this wall are the child’s bust which I found at Goodwill (isn’t it perfect that he’s reading?), and an unfinished embroidery of the United States found at an estate sale (I mounted it with sewing pins onto a piece of foam board). I also dream of having a huge vintage globe collection–I actually have another not pictured here, and this one I found at Goodwill, too.

Most of the children’s books we own are also secondhand, like this nearly completes set of A Series of Unfortunate Events* I got for a couple bucks. And the mini lantern in the middle used to be a lamp, I just took the wiring and stand out (another Goodwill find).

The opposite wall holds a collage of frames from all over. The framed piece in the upper right has a beautiful prayer of blessing embroidered on it–this was from a giant church sale. The iris next to it is a painting I did in high school art class. The chair was a roadside find (we’re big on those), and the basket is another from Goodwill (I have a thing for baskets, too).

I also adore this cardboard print of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The fancy plastic frame suits it perfectly. Thank you Goodwill!

And I couldn’t end without highlighting the beautiful vintage doorknobs and hardware my husband has hunted down for us, either (he installed the vintage door, too).
Yeah, we’ve got a thing for old things around here.
How do you display your favorite thrifted finds in your home? Stay tuned for the next room of our tour!
