Think: Goodwill meets Home Depot!
Talk about educational. While we don't have specific measurements for our house yet - it really helped fuel our ideas. We ended up finding 2 stacks of tile we really liked- and for $3/stack we figured we could splurge and find a home for it eventually!
The real finds came when we ventured next door to maybe the largest Salvation Army I've ever been to- people we're talking WAREHOUSE big. And while my squirmy toddler didn't allow for a full dive in, we walked away with these two precious gems:

You might be asking- but do you have a fireplace?
And the answer is: not yet?!
The house we will be closing on in 15 days does have all the piping for a fireplace as it currently has a kettle "stove" in the family room. After we are done adding new floors + paint + redoing the kitchen cabinets (yeah... I'm tired just TYPING that), we are planning to remove the stove and add in a fireplace. With our family, we know the stove is way too easily accessible to curious lil fingers or God forbid Luci falls onto it and really harms herself.
So I would say we made out like BANDITS. Let the thrifting/bargain hunting begin!
Any fun thrifting for you??
