Thrifty Finds 8.1.11

So it has been a loooong time since i've been thrifting... we are saving our monies around here for Baby G so i've been holding back...this is way harder than i am making it sound :)
Anyway last weekend i went to a thirft store called Providence in Fort Oglethorpe. This thrift store is awesome because you can haggle! 
Here is what i walked away with!

I found this adorable rocking chair for the nursery for $5!
I love the distressed chippy look but i may need to put a clear coat on it to keep it safe for Baby G. Anyone know anything about that??
 I got this utensil holder for $4 a little high but i asked them to come down on a couple other things and didn't want to push my luck :)
 i have the same one in brown but thought this would be a fun pop of color for a while. And i think i'll use the brown one as a candle holder.
 and my FAVORITE purchase. This lovely Chandelier. Now at first i was thinking for the closet but it's a little big so i think we're gonna put it in the bathroom.
 It was marked $10 but i asked them if they could take $7 and they said yes! 
We are gonna paint the walls in the bathroom blue or maybe green so what color do you think i should paint it??I was thinking something bold but i also thought maybe grey, or oil rubbed bronze.. so many options!
Lemme know what color you think i should paint the chandelier, and if you know of any clear protective coat i should put on the rocking chair!
Thanks guys!
P.S. This weekend is the Endless Yard Sale!! I went with my friend Linds last year, you can read all about that here
I am going on Saturday and Sunday this year. We only went Sunday last year and got SO MANY DEALS cause people were ready to pack up and go! 
So hopefully i'll be back with some awesome finds for you next week!

Hey Alaina! What awesome finds!!
I think a low VOC protective clear coat (or 2 or 3...) would be a great idea for that rocker. You don't know WHAT kind of chippy paint could come off that thing, so keep the look but go for safety!

Have you considered white for the chandelier? If you were painting the bathroom walls a spa-like color, white accents could be really pretty!

Can't wait to see what you choose. :)

Benjamin Moore Has a Natura line that is NO VOC. It was amazing when we opened the can, there was no smell. We have 3 babes and we went the No VOC route and won't go back. Great finds! I like the Idea of a cucumber or mint green for the chandelier.
