Mr. Goodwill Hunting

It is fantastic to see designers using thrift and salvage items in their design scheme.  I came across Rashon aka Mr. Goodwill Hunting on the Nate Berkus Show.  He transforms thrift items into special pieces for his clients.  

You can check out the Nate Berkus' video:

This is some of his Before and Afters:

Now doesn't this get you excited to find some treasures at garage sales or at your local thrift store!


  1. Love your blog posts, Tricia! Keep up the great work!

  2. The lamp is my favorite, what a transformation!

  3. Oh no....we can't have designers showing people these beautiful transformations....everyone will be at the thrift store now :) I love how that sofa turned out.
    I've been busy catching up on your previous the crib springs painted white and used as a jewelry holder. I saw one of these just this past week at a big junk/antique store. I thought about buying it for a memo board but it wasn't priced and I really don't have any more walls to hang it! It's just perfect for your jewelry.
    Your office makeover is fantastic! Love, love, love the gray. I have a gallon of gray paint for my son's bedroom (I've had it for a month now). I really want to get it painted....seeing your room has motivated me!
    Have a great weekend.
