A Thrifted Nook

I have an unusual little nook in my family room. It's a small spot in between the fireplace and the hall. One of my first furniture thrift store purchases for this home was this bookcase. I fell in love with it's shape and size the moment I saw it.
It was the perfect piece for this nook. I filled it and topped it with more thrifted items. Yes, everything you see here (with the exception of the large finial)
were thrift store bargains costing no more than a dollar or two.
Even the beautiful framed photograph of doorways
was a thrift treasure.
It just proves that
it doesn't have to cost a lot to decorate

even the most unusual spaces in your home!

I have a spot just like this at the side of our fireplace. I have a neat little table there as well. But I put in the corner rather than flush with the wall. I'm going to try your idea and see if it works at my home. Thanks for sharing.
