Projects, Chairs and The Happy Dance



Hope all you kids had a sensational weekend. I know I did. {{Snuck off for a little I'm-not-done-with-the-beach trip}}. I've also ticked off a little project that's been waiting in the wings for a while.

I picked up a frame from an op shop for $8 the other week. Not for the Government Dept. advertising, but because the frame was incredibly well made. Add to the dags-ville frame a little left over black paint, and a gorgeous print from the very talented Emma Leonard, and I'm fully stoked with the outcome. Love it to bits.

OK, so I also promised a run down on some of my eBay loot too. These images are lifted from the auction pages, as I'm still waiting to take delivery on one piece and the others are temporarily ensconced in my workshop until I have figured out what to do with them and/or get my real estate dreams to come true.

  • So, there was a set of six antique chapel chairs {complete with bible holders} for $130 (yep for all 6!).
  • Then there was the brass and lucite coffee table, $3.25 thank you very much.
  • And probably my biggest happy dance was for a Philippe Starck Bubble Club Sofa for a post auction sale of only $200.
 Yes, it was a pretty sweet week indeed!
