Free furniture - 4 drawer chest

On Friday I got an SMS from my friends "hi, we have a set of drawers/filing cabinet cluttering up our lounge room. would you like them?"

....umm  YES PLEASE!!

I immediately jumped in the car and raced over there to load this beauty up.  Aren't I lucky to have such generous friends who think of me! Viv and Shan, thanks so much!

I had sold the vintage turquoise sideboard last week, so I thought I'd paint this one turquoise also. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Photos below of it in my space at the Balmain Road Antiques Centre. For sale $450. Fantastic storage for tight spaces.

I also sold the pink vanity yesterday to a lovely family who then sent me the photo below of it all in place in their little girl's room.  Doesn't this look sweet! 

I love meeting the people who buy my furniture and knowing that they are happy with their purchase and with what I've done. It's so rewarding!

Tomorrow I'll post about our dinner on Saturday night at a fantastic Italian restaurant and what my husband did for me. 

Anyone else got good stories from the weekend?
