Thrift Shifts for Bridal Boutique

Thrift Shifts for Bridal Boutique

Yard Work Style Hobbyist

French-inspired furniture pieces are usually pricey primarily due to the intricacy of its design. So the challenge was to achieve the look without going over the set budget. Luckily I found some old furniture pieces being sold at thrift shop prices. You can do the same for your own home if you’re decorating on a budget!

  1. Check out as many stores as you can so you can compare prices and see what’s readily available out there.
  2. Find good thrift shops, moving out garage sales, and even secondhand furniture online groups.
  3. Make sure you check the bones to see if it’s still worth the price and effort.
  4. Choose and order your fabric. (I immediately went to Shell Canvas.)
  5. Get a pro to do the upholstery and paint job for you. (I worked with Gilson of Chutick & Sons.)

THE FABRIC

Fabrics we shortlisted. I chose twill.

AS A RESULT…

Compared to brand new pieces, I was able to save over 50% of the cost! I hope this inspires you to go thrift shop hunting and get creative! 🙂
