We're back from a wonderful week away skiing and other activities. The snow was fantastic but the weather not so good. Low visibility and very cold and windy. But we all had a great time and the kids picked up skiing very quickly. I wish I'd learnt as a small child! I felt very proud watching them woosh down the mountain with no fear!
It's back to normal here now. Kids went back to school this morning after 3 weeks holiday and they were very happy to see their lovely teachers. After doing the reading in kindergarten, I finished a little white cabinet that will be for sale in my booth.
It is solid timber with 2 doors and a shelf and one drawer. Original hardware. Painted white, waxed and distressed.
and the cabinet before painting:
My heart is going out to the people of Norway as they deal with their grief. It's just not what you'd expect is it?
I found this photo below at Provincial Kitchens after I'd chosen my colour scheme but it was great to see that what I wanted would work! I spoke to Provincial Kitchens and they said this kitchen below has since been painted black! Shame really....
also from the above source
below is a bit more industrial - gorgeouslights and clock
The next 2 are so similar (although I'm not so much a fan of stools at island benches)
Love the rangehood below and those skylights/sloping windows
Source above is possibly The Kitchen House I think?
Love all this crockery!
Is this Martha Stewart's?
And I love the beadboard on the rangehood below although I didnt end up doing this.
I picked up this leather armchair recently from a guy who had bought a 3 seater, 2 seater and this single. When they were delievered he realised the full set didn't fit in their loungeroom. So this is basically brand new.
It's extremly comfortable and in gorgeous condition.
I bought this gorgeous wardrobe at auction a few weeks ago and was comtemplating painting it white but the oak is lovely ....and it's really massive and I wasn't sure how to get it home. So I put it in my booth, cleaned it and oiled it and thought if it didn't sell quickly then I'd bring it home to paint.
The kids and I popped into my booth today and it has sold which is kind of a relief! (I've got enough to paint in my shed already and it's school holidays so not much is getting done at the moment).
