Fun Furniture Finds

As y'all know, I'm always on the hunt for a good bargain for furniture and other home accessories. I've scoured countless thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, and even Dumpsters to find and salvage furniture. 

The best kind of furniture bargain is a free one! My mom and I discovered that there is a shed behind the apartment building we are renovating that contains all of the furniture that previous renters have left behind. Some of it is gross and needs to take a trip to the dump, but the majority of it can be used after getting some TLC from a quick sanding and a coat of paint. 
The mirrors we found are amazing! Since this space is small, we're going to use a lot of mirrors to reflect light in the rooms to make them appear larger (the single best trick I've learned when decorating a small space!) 
I want to paint some of these with bright pops of color to act as a conversation piece. I'm thinking a bright cobalt or maybe a sunny yellow. The chairs definitely need to be reupholstered, which will give me another place to put fun prints!
