NEED ART? TRY GOODWILL!


I’ve been trying to figure out what to put on this wall for the longest time now. While on one of my weekly trips to Goodwill, I found a fun colorful piece of art that I thought was perfect!



hallway 001


hallway 007




For $15, I figure it was a great deal. The only problem is that now I have another place in my house that I think it would work much better!


hallway 009


So maybe I’m back to square one….But for now, I’m happy!

Karen left me a comment and said that the art reminded her of the Kim Parker's work. Guess what, it's signed by Parker! I did a search and found the same piece on Overstock for $226.99! Thanks Karen!






Have you found any great artwork at a thrift/second hand store lately?!

I love that piece, it looks like something from artist Kim Parker, one of my favorite contemporary artists.

Is the other spot in the home one where you spend more time? In that case you might want to move it so you can enjoy it more often.

That fits perfectly in your hallway!! Last week I got two HUGE (4x3feet) framed & matted art pieces from Goodwill for just $35! I bought them for the frames but the art is actually nice too.

That's gorgeous!! How neat that you scored an expensive piece for so cheap.

If you aren't going to use it in the hallway, do you have another place in mind to use it? I think you should definitely keep it, its really pretty.
