Thrift Store Find + Book Shelf Styling

I scored this lovely curio at a thrift store last week for 80 dollars! This is one of my better finds this year so far. I couldn't believe the price! I love scouring thrift stores and flea markets because you tend to find unique items and real gems like this one.

I haven't quite decided what to do with it yet. I was leaning towards painting it white with a vibrant interior color but the wood is in perfect condition. I almost feel guilty covering it with paint. What I can decide on now is styling the shelves. Since it will remain without paint for a while, I'm thinking white accessories will really pop against the wood.

Check out these lovely accessories I've found so far.

Also, here's a little shelf styling inspiration via Pinterest.

  1. I love your curio and I know its in perfect condition but I'm loving the white idea! I think you should try it...

    1. Oh I think you're right Marie!! The white would look so awesome! I think it's the work to refinish it that I'm dreading. lol
