I am definitely not in the market for shopping this week as we have spent the last couple of days clearing out a lot of my mum's house. Helped greatly by my mum's second husband's first wife (my step siblings' mum). We have a pretty amazing blended family! At mum's funeral, amongst loads of family and friends, there was my dad and his second wife (mum and dad were divorced 30 years ago), and most of dad's siblings and my mum's "wife in law" (her second husband's first wife) and her sister and brother in law! We do blended families here very well! So Brady Bunch!
But I thought I'd share some of the items for auction this morning at Lawson's in Annandale.Auction details
3 August 2012; start 9:30amI adore these vintage wooden folded chairs. They look very cool! There are 3 of them for auction as one lot. Lot 1277.
I love a good table makeover. I think this table would look good with its legs and apron painted and the top kept wooden. French Style Walnut Drawer Leaf Table Lot 1128
And these cross back chairs are always popular. Set of 8. Lot 1123.
And my final pick of what's on auction at Lawson's today is this French / Louis XV Style Carved Walnut Dresser, Fitted with Multiple Doors and Drawers. Estimate $800-1,200. Lot 1238
Sorry wood lovers but I would paint it white! Or possibly pale French grey.
If you decide to buy anything let me know how you get on, I'd love to hear!
I'm driving home today up the coast with my car laden and filled to the brim with fabrics, and other sewing stuff. And my mother's amazing sewing machine and overlocker. And a divine green suede coat my mum had in the 60s. (she really had style 40 years ago!) Will be nice to wear it and remember her by.
