Thrifty Thursday #8

Last week Mum found this on the side of the road…

I KNOW!! Can you believe someone was throwing this away!! She’s is in need of a huge overhaul, there are cracks, dings and broken bits, but that shape is enough to help me look past all her flaws. The cut outs on the shelves are beautiful.

 There are some fairly serious issues going on with the table top, so I’m yet to work out what to do with her, but isn’t it nice to look at?? When I pulled the little draw out (it’s sitting on the table top in the very first picture) a million ants came scurrying out (well, it felt like a million) but that’s nothing a little spray won’t fix!

I also visited a some local op shops this week, and came up with the globite suitcase above and the retro stool below. The suitcase is in great condition, though the inside needs a little love, and the stool is a perfect small project to reupholster. I’ve seen some great stools covered with retro tea towels which are definitely sparking my thoughts for this one.

So what about you? Found anything fantastic this week?

Thanks for stopping by…
