I like this little grouping and I let the little bird out of my cage. The jug was a purchase from Ikea a long time ago and it just goes with everything.
So this is what the sideboard looks like…today! The lighting is not very good as it is cold and raining. The only thing that ever seems to stay the same come to think of it is the Vacuum Oil Co sign on the wall. We love this. It is part of an old crate and someone had taken the time to lacquer it so it has a wonderful sheen to it. It fits in with our floorboards so well.
I still can picture Mics face when the men dropped it off…he was horrified! I must admit, it was bad. A washed out blue, no door, bits of veneer missing, stained, had been in the rain for about 2 weeks and was on its was to the dump!!!
For $5.00 it was a great bargain. The men at the Shed thought I was a loony for wanting it!
I love it and it has been so practical. All of our chargers etc are in one drawer. Magazines I cant part with in one door, kids craft items in another and another drawer I still haven’t filled yet…and all for $5.00!
I also wanted to show you this which I picked up on my trip to The Vintage Rose a few weeks ago. Some of you wanted to know what else I bought. This was one of them. It smells divine, but I mainly bought it for the bottle. Once it is empty I will re fill it. The only problem is that I would love to showing you it beside my Belfast sink…but we don’t have one. It is on ‘the list’ and at least I have the bottle already.
So, now I am off to check if our raspberry and white choc muffins are ready to have with a cup of coffee, then to see what else I can change….
