I told you…horrid! We had no where else to store all the stuff while the doors were being put in…except in here! This was the corner where I had my little table, which has become way too small. All of my paperwork, orders and sewing was done from this little table! It has been turned onto the other wall, and is now my wrapping station…I needed one.
On Sunday, Mic, the boys and I went to Evandale Market and I found this lovely old Coogan’s table. Coogan’s is an old Tasmanian furniture manufacturer. It even has the old makers mark underneath. I got it for $35.00. The dealer turned out to be our towns second hand dealer, so he brought the table home the 60kms for me for free! It arrived this morning and I gave it a light sand to reveal the lovely wood on top, which will be waxed and the bottom will be painted white.
It now looks so nice with my made over lamp on it. I will show you during the week, the before and after of the lamp.
This is what you can see now as you look in the door, instead of a builders site! I was still in the process of vacuuming and organising at this stage, hence the cords on the floor. I still have to hang some artwork on the walls and tweak here and there
Eeew! Things that didn’t go are just shoved anywhere. I haven’t spent a lot of time in here recently…you see why! I didn’t like seeing all of my lovely bits and pieces plonked just anywhere.
That little two door cupboard was one of my bargain finds. I got it for $5.00! The bird houses are my Dads creations waiting to be painted.
After a little clean up, it looks better. My new Keep Calm poster arrived on Friday, and until I get it framed for the wall, I hung it over my old mirror. It worked well as the frame has a tiny fleck of gold paint around the wood grain from a previous colour.
Now I can’t wait to work in my finally sorted space.
