Vintage bedroom set in navy (take two)

(republishing as hopefully the photos appear properly this time)

Happy Easter everyone! We’re watching I,Tonya curled up on the lounge. I bought a new iPad last week and am going to change my schedule with blogging as obviously blogging early in the morning isn’t working well anymore as I’m so erratic. Hopefully the iPad app makes my posts look nice. This navy furniture is going to look good anyway 😎

I bought these all from an estate sale. I ended up selling separately but decided to paint them all in navy. I love how it all turned out. I’ve found it difficult to photograph these and capture their true colour. They are a beautiful deep dark navy. So regal.

The bedside tables are just gorgeous. I love the legs. 
A lovely regular customer Deb bought the large chests of drawers and is picking them up on Tuesday. I’m sure she will love them. She already has navy bedsides that she bought from me a few months ago.

The bedside tables have a fantastic story. I received a message from a guy called Lee. He told me that his wife loves my furniture and had been ogling these bedsides the night before, and if they were still available could he buy them for his wife as their anniversary present. Husband of the year.  So I told him they were available and so he jumps in his car and drives from Newcastle to pick them up, and hopes to get home and to put them into place before his wife Jodie gets home.

The night I got a gorgeous message from Jodie
Hey! OMG I got a shock when I got home today. Thank you they’re beautiful.

Makes me so happy
