Farmhouse Dining Table with Grey Chairs

I love making over dining tables and seeing them come alive with a new coat of paint and stain. I have teamed the white table with some painted grey timber chairs which have been distressed so the timber underneath pops through. 


This piece will be available at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre this week. 



Check out my tuffed red chair. I call it my Santa Claus chair as it reminds me of a chair that you would see Santa sitting in at the Shopping Centre come Christmas time.

Numbered Wardrobe

I have been totally inspired by Atlanta Bartlett recently and when I was ready to make over this wardrobe yesterday I knew I wanted it rustic and to resemble an old farmhouse piece. The timber was already distressed it was just a matter of bringing all that character through once painted. 

The cute timber Rosewood clock was made over also with a french grey paint, cleaned up and a battery added and wella it goes.


My french chair that Ange covered for me recently. 







I love adding my signature numbers on large pieces and believe it finishes the wardrobe off beautifully. 



Plenty of hanging and cupboard space inside.  Going to be hard to part with this piece.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Rustic Cupboard & Some Winners

Thank-you all for your lovely comments on my previous post. I drew two lucky winners last night who will both receive a copy of the September/October issue of Australian Country Collections.
Congratulations to: the gorgeous Rebecca in South Australia lifeinthecountrylane.blogspot.com
and the beautiful Deborah in Canada http://purehunnybee.blogspot.com/ if you could both send me your address I will get these in the mail for you both.


Now we are having bucket loads of rain this week, which is great for the tanks but not so great when your trying to get pieces dry. I did finish this sweet little cupboard which has been transformed with a coat of french grey paint and heavily sanded to look old and rustic. 

Gorgeous piece of lace - a birthday present from a girlfriend.

Sweet Finds


I picked these roses today from my garden and have not edited them at all this is their true color - just the most beautiful shade of pink.

Some market finds - a Marcs white t-shirt, vintage coat hangers and a lovely wooden necklace.


Lovely tall white pitcher filled with plenty of white roses. 



These vintage metal wall sconces were a great find, already white they are going to look amazing in my bathroom either side of a large vintage mirror. 



Cake plates in beautiful pastel colors.

I did score some nice goodies this week including the old timber pigeon hole cabinet, a lovely white glass door cupboard and some gorgeous baskets. 





I hope your all having a lovely weekend.
