French Grey Drawer Makeover

Usually when I pick up a piece of furniture and they are already white I am  releaved as sometimes if saves me time painting them. However with this lovely set of drawers all I could see was French Grey. 

Love the way they have turned out and I even kept the original hardware.
The gorgeous tall lamp base was a find from a few weeks ago that I finally got around to painting as well.

I love those spur of the moment decisions that you make in your life and this weekend we decided to head off for five days and enjoy this beautiful hot summer weather. 
These shots were taken this afternoon down by the beach in North Queensland of my children having fun in the sun.

Making new friends with the locals.
Thinking of all the things I should be doing at home and all that furniture that needs painting. Oh well it will all be there later in the week. Next stop is the Sunshine Coast where I just may to do some thrifting and some relaxing at a local day spa.

Weekend Drawer Makeover

I particulary love the style of legs on these drawers as they are a little different and a little fun.  I did live with them in their dark timber state for a few months but always new they would look amazing white.
These roses are fresh out of my garden - and this colour is just stunning. I have not edited the colour at all.

I am selling these gorgeous linen table runners if anyone is interested. They are soft and luxurious and have beautiful vintage style faint black stripes.
Price is $26 plus postage.

Tea Towels are $12.90 for a set of three (3).

This gorgeous desk only lasted one day in my shop and I can see why. I left the timber top as is but painted the legs white, could be used as a desk or even a small dining table.

Chinese Vase Collection Find

Every now and then something out of the ordinary stops you in your tracks. Whilst out thrifting I found these twelve gorgeous chinese vases in this beautiful black timber shelf. The vases were all in perfect condition dated & stamped and totally gorgeous colours.

I have been snowed under with furniture makeovers these last two weeks and have lots of exciting pieces on the go. Hope to visit all your beautiful blogs soon.
