More eBay goodness 🙂
I was so going to bid on this, until I remembered my vow to get rid of some stuff before I brought anything else into the house… A 1948 Box Brownie in working order… isn’t it prettyful? Ends in 18 hours so hop to it.
Denys Fisher First Edition Spirograph!! It dates from 1968 and it’s located in the UK. I remember the hours of fun I had with one of these as a kid…. get moving though, I just found it and bidding ends in 5 hours.
Here are two fabulous examples of worn out, drab old furniture being brought back to life with a little TLC… (aka from Eeew to Ooooh! :P)
First – Claires’ boring, old fashioned telephone table… she took one of the most un-hip items of furniture imaginable, and made it into a bright modern piece that anyone would be proud to have in their hallway.
Next, Eily found herself in posession of various pieces of furniture when she bought an old cottage, and among them was this pretty scary fireside chair. Several layers of fabric had to come off, but what an elegant transformation – it’s barely recognisable as the same chair!
Inspiration to go stick paper on stuff….
