Vintage drinks cabinet and photos at home

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and grandads. We are in the car driving to see my Dad and step Mum who now have retired to the Central Coast. Just a last minute trip and we will pick up lunch on the way but we thought why not. Everyone is getting older and who knows how long we will have with these precious people. 

Here’s a few photos from around home. My friend, Jayne, gave me the beautiful lavender.  I just love it , such pretty colours.

Goes perfectly with my fake lavender in the dining room:)

The garden is slowing coming alive again after winter. The roses are going well and I think I’m going to have a bumper crop of orchids this year: so many buds. 

I wanted to share a gorgeous drinks cabinet I have available. While it’s originally for drinks I think it’s such a practical piece and could be used anywhere in your house.

Available:  A gorgeous vintage drinks cabinet with two cupboards and a drawer below. The top cupboard has a mirror interior: back and base and two adjustable slimline glass shelves. mirrored interior and glass shelves. 

This elegant piece has been painted in a warm pale grey chalk paint, white in the details, a smooth waxed finish and a little black wax for added patina. The interior of all areas has been painted in a beautiful sea foam green paint that is spray and wipeable for easy clean up. 

I painted one of these years ago and my buyer uses it in her bedroom to store makeup and perfume and clothes in the drawer and cupboard below. This would also work beautifully in a bathroom.

We are now home and I’m almost ready for bed. 
Hope you have had a lovely father’a day 

And more lavender in my parents’ garden. Gran sent the kids home each with a posy for their rooms. Aren’t grandparents the best?
