Good morning lovely people! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Saturday was freezing and wet and I felt for our kids playing sport. It was cold enough standing all rugged up on the sidelines. Their little hands were so old they could barely catch the ball. I actually had to bribe Jonty to go back on the field for his last quarter of AFL. He didn't actually want anything for himself but had been asking to buy his friend a present so that was his motivation to brave the rest of the game and I'm glad he did as he had a cracking quarter with a fantastic kick to a fellow team member resulting in a goal.
Sunday on the other hand was a beautiful day. Sasah and Phil went to the Swifts netball and Jonty and I headed up to meet my family for brunch at Brooklyn. It was superb looking over the water. So close to Sydney and so peaceful.
In the afternoon I had a load of furniture picked up by happy customers. This chest of drawers below has been sitting in the corner of my dining room for about a month while the buyers were waiting to move house. Now my dining room looks very empty without it.
I painted these vintage drawers in a soft layered grey with a wash of white. I love the shape, the finish and these unusual handles.
These bedsides painted in a soft Dulux grey and waxed. I will be finishing the matching chest of drawers today.
These sweet drawers painted in ASCP Paloma. These are off to a little girl's room and the dad said to me thanks so much, her room is just beautiful now. Always nice to have lovely feedback.
This chair was also bought by the family for their daughter's room. A low Victorian chair I painted in a Porters french blue and upholstered in fantastic designer brand clock fabric.
And this little coat stand I made from a piece that originally would have been the back of a cabinet. I love quirky pieces like this.
I also spent the late afternoon finishing up our study and we are so happy with it all. I will share tomorrow.
have a lovely day
