summer thrift list

A recent trip to Restoration Hardware has inspired me to collect some of these items this summer (at thrift shops, discount stores, yard sales, etc):


vintage yogurt bottles ($29 each at RH)


retro wire baskets ($39-59 ea at RH)


cast metal letters, for bookends ($10-69 ea at RH)

all it would take is a little banging around and some diy with paint or whatever to get a darker shade on them.

super ideas. can't wait to see your space!
