I’ve been wanting to share this fun post for quite some time, and if you follow me on Instagram, you would have already seen a sneak peek of my fun little pool cabana. This has literally been a dream come true for us, and since we pretty much ran out of money after this thing was built, I had to get creative when it came to furnishing it. So…. thrift store finds to the rescue!!!
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.

I knew that I wanted some type of outdoor bed in my backyard pool cabana, but when I started checking out the prices, my jaw dropped. They were in the thousands!!! So, I went on my trusty little local buy & sell app and found this awesome daybed for a hundred bucks. I am an awful blogger that was so excited to put this thing together, I didn’t even take a Before pic.
My next thrifted item was this set of chairs. I found them for $12 each, and was originally going to spray them a fun colour, but when I put them in place flanking the daybed to get a sense of the layout, I decided that I liked them white after all.
A little accessorizing with some cute pillows, and I call this space finished. The stools were purchased on clearance at the end of last summer. August is always a great time to score some steals for the following year.
My new puppy has also taken a liking to these chairs and tries to eat them, so just ignore the little nibble marks on the arms.
I have some more thrift store accents to add to this space in the coming weeks, which includes a candle chandelier, which I’ll spray paint and outfit with some battery operated candles, and a large clock that will go on this empty wall. I’m about 90% done this space, so I’m in the home stretch.
The perfect spot for an outdoor nap…. Zzzzzzzz
At first, my husband didn’t think we needed a pool cabana, but no word of a lie if he isn’t out there on that bed Every. Single. Day. having a nap…. I’m convinced he loves it more than I do.
It just goes to show ya, that being creative and furnishing a space on a budget can actually be pretty darn amazing in the end.
And now for more thrifty goodness!
