Blog Love: The Goodwill King!

For a while (until two days ago), Will and I were living pretty much on one salary. So I have learned (Will may disagree) how to penny pinch, and shop for bargains for the home. We were going over all our furniture recently, and pretty much all except a few pieces were steals from goodwill, or craigslist, or markets. 
I LOVE to see people making amazing homes on a budget..and I have found the KING of Goodwill Hunting. He actually calls himself Mr. Goodwill Hunting
Here's what his nifty blog has to offer...




Fold out tray that he painted and turned into a coffee table..clever!



Must say I am in love... and it seems that he will be a guest on the Nate Show. Well done Mr. Goodwill Hunting!!

I found him a few weeks back and I guess that makes us the Goodwill Queens...All of my Thursday's thrifts are Gw {code word}. I did not know this about you...I just posted my living room and breakfast nook spaces and most of it is GW. Here is to many happy finds...Dawn xo

Great pictures from his site. I love his idea for a coffee table.

I did a post today on thrifting as well! http://artwinedesign.blogspot.com/

holy moly, that first shot is to die for! I had a client recently who had a card cataloge, but they were not as stylish as he is. Thanks for sharing!
