Before Christmas Mr C bought me an old dark wood, glazed cupboard. He could see it's potential and knew I had been looking for something with deep enough shelves for some of my bigger books.
He gave it a coat of Farrow and Ball in 'Lichen' and polished up the old hinges and it has been completely transformed. All I need to do now is fill it !
This very old rustic pine chest was found at the local recycling shop. Mr C has also painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk white, rubbed it back a bit and given it a wax. He will be taking this down to the unit at Brackley Antiques Cellar when it is finished.
This old suitcase also came from the recycling shop and has a lovely blue silk lining.
I recently bought a carrier bag of fabric from a local charity shop for the princely sum of £2. Inside were all sorts of pieces of vintage fabric including an unfinished patchwork bedspread.
