Thrifting Finds

Last weekend I went shopping with a friend of mine who was visiting from out of town. We went to all the usual spots, and ended up at my local Salvation Army. They had a huge selection of furniture.

The upholstery on this sofa has definitely seen better days, but we really liked its clean lines. The sofa and matching loveseat was $150 for the set. 
The fabric on this one was also really gross, but the chair had a great shape. Only 20 bucks. 

This solid wood chest of drawers was a great deal at $70.

This handsome wingback chair came home with me. It will go in our master bedroom after I have it recovered. It was only $30.

This little guy also came home with me. I'm not sure yet where we will put it, but at only $30 I couldn't pass up its potential.

Won't it look great reupholstered with one fabric on the inside and a different, coordinating fabric on the outside?

My lucky friend snatched up this smart buffet for only $120. It is in perfect condition, just needs to be refinished or painted. 

Sometimes you find something, sometimes you don't. I'd say that this time, we totally scored! 
Now I just have to figure out how to go about getting a chair reupholstered...

Have you have any luck lately finding the perfect piece of furniture at your local thrift store?
