This Week's Happenings

Another busy week gone by during the school holidays. 
First up I found these gorgeous french looking nest of two tables. 
I love the detail under the glass and I will most likely give them a light coat of paint at some point. 

I was decorating with lots of Ashwell fabrics today so snapped a picture of the dining table. 

Some new pieces to the shop this week.

We also did lots of boating through the week and caught our dinner for the night. Nothing better than fresh fish. 

The kids in action casting out at the same time. 

Me getting ready to hop off the boat, after five hours of boating I was rocking in my sleep.

Another Weekend ahead of great weather - Enjoy.

Farmhouse Trestle Table

When I found this table last week I had the perfect image of teaming it up with a set of six rattan chairs that I already had in my shed. These chairs were meant for a more french style table that I am in the process of doing up but I just think this style of more formal chairs with a country table works just perfectly. The table is made from Tasmanian hardwood and is a gorgeous piece. 

Would make a great statement in a dining room with a large crystal chandelier above. 

The chairs were put in the too hard basket for over a year but then Ange came to the rescue and recovered the chairs pads for me in this gorgeous linen fabric. 

You can see to the left of the dining table is a gorgeous french Armoire that I haven't had time to make over yet.

The table top has been sanded and sealed with the base painted white. 

The table is huge and could easily be an eight seater if required. 

These were the chairs before they got new linen covers.

Lamp Makeover

I found this sweet blue and white ginger jar style lamp base at the thrift store during the week but instead of putting this one into my store I decided I would make over a shade and keep it. 
I actually didn't have a lot of confidence that it would turn out how I wanted so I didn't even bother taking a before shot of the shade. It was lime green and not the best to look at so I recovered it with this gorgeous pink and white candy stripe fabric.  
I put a lovely pink braid at the base and a vintage trim around the top to finish it off.

A huge pile of sheet music that I found on my travels this week some dated from the 1940's. 

I loved the look of the lamp so I decided to use the same fabric on another project which I hope to show you later in the week. 

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of you that read my blog and purchase goodies from my shop space. Lots of the comments have no email reply but you all take the time to send me a comment so - thank-you . Your support means the world to me and makes me smile.

Around The House

I love looking back on pieces that have come and gone and here are a few that have been made over this year.  Some I must admit will remain for a bit longer.

I have some lovely pieces on the go at the moment that I am looking forward to showing you all soon.

Enjoy your weekend.
