Great finds and some stripes!

My friend came furniture scouring with me this morning then we spent the afternoon sprucing up my space at Balmain Road Antiques. What a productive day! Some great finds as well as a totally new looking space.

Gorgeous chairs ready for a makeover. Check out those divine legs! Got these discounted by 20% - is it wrong to bargain with a charity??

A cute little nightstand with a drop down door. This is going to look fabulous painted.  

and a little coffee table exactly the same as the one I painted with a harlequin pattern. The previous was snapped up so quickly so I think I'll do this one the same.

After a quick lunch, stops at Spotlight and 2 hardware shops, and getting the kids from school, we added some great black and white canvas to the back wall and moved some furniture around as well as adding my new cushions and babies' singlets. Now it looks much more inviting! 

Now I'm off to do some market research on alcohol. After that busy day, I'm hopping for taste tests!




  1. Your space looks great :). I love your birdie dresser! The stripes look awesome!! Happy painting,

  2. You pieces look great! Thanks for your feedback about pricing my union jack dresser. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

  3. i cant wait to see the little night stand all painted i love the shape

  4. I can't wait to see what you do with those chairs and the night stand… I'm sure they are going to look fabulous like the rest of your furniture!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. It looks great! I hope the research goes well... ; )
