When we arrived in Brisbane, our first stop off the freeway was at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre where Sandy from Paint Me White has her booth. Sandy and I have become great friends this last year, sharing furniture and paint news several times a week so I was so excited to finally meet her in real life.
Here is her beautiful booth. I love everything especially those pompoms. If you ever are in Brisbane this place is a must see. She paints beautifully, has a great eye for lovely pieces and very reasonable prices. The WAC must also really appreciate Sandy's style as she has a prime position at the end of the main walkway. Very easy to find.
Sandy and I spent 2 hours over coffee chatting about our furniture, paints and waxes and our lives. It is wonderful having a friend who shares the same enthusiasm and passion for painting furniture. I'm sure I bore many of my other friends to tears!
The cafe at the WAC is great also. My kids loved the pear and raspberry bread (even if I had to tell my son it was banana as he was sure he didn't like Pear and raspberry bread - but he managed to eat 2 slices when he thought it was banana....kids!!!)
Below is a photo of some of Sandy's divine furniture that she has transformed this last year. Although I'm sure if you are reading my blog, you would already be reading Sandy's and know her lovely stuff.

I'd love to hear your comments about any blog friends you have made. These friendships are my favourite part of blogging - being in touch with like-minded and inspiring people (women) from all over the world.
My kids went back to school this morning and I'm about to start painting a lovely french desk. It's perfect painting weather here today!
