Thrifty Thursday #14 - throw your two cents in!

Just a few pics today... I'm exhausted! Things have been so busy the last week or so that I'm really in need of some time out. Or an early night. Or how 'bout a day on the couch with popcorn and movies?? I remember the days...

I haven't decided exactly what to do with these as yet, so if you've got a suggestion throw it in the ring! You can comment here or on Facebook.

If you've been following along you'll know that this isn't the first Queen Anne stool I've made over, but I couldn't help picking this one up too! This time I think I'm doing white.

And how orange is this high chair! It is covered in so much lacquer she's a bit sticky, but she could be lovely. I'm tossing up between fire engine red ('cause it's unisex) or white, with tiny hand painted bunting across the back and maybe on the seat.

In case you're wondering, no I'm not expecting a new little person. Two is enough thank you very much!! I've booked in to do a new market (for me anyway) that tends to have loads of children's things, so I thought this piece would be a great one to take along.

Ok last one...

I shared this one last week, but it's still on my mind. I'm tossing up between a bright colour, like red or yellow (I'm thinking a great pop of colour for your lounge room) OR white, with a white / blue / green map page on the top. I have the perfect pages... Thoughts?

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. I'm really loving the trend for paint dipped/colour blocked furniture at the moment and have also been playing around with ombre effect....your chair would look great with either trend:) I've just done an ombre effect bookcase which was fun!!

  2. Oooh...I like the idea of the map page....I'd love to see you do that :)

  3. Ooh the hand painted bunting sounds gorgeous!! You have more patience than me! Are you going to use chalk paint so you don't have to strip the varnish off? Or sand and zinnser?

  4. I think white and a map page would look great! Hope you get a bit of down time soon :)

  5. Hmmm I'm thinking that the high-chair shouldn't be white. We mums all know why. Fire engine red sounds fantastic. How about navy blue with a seaside kinda vibe?

    I'm thinking zebra on the foot stool.

    And I don't quite know about the table. Maybe silver and mauve?

    Just my 2c worth.

    Have fun re-doing them.

  6. I like the white with map page idea too, I would love to see that. And the last piece - emerald green the colour of the season!!


I'd love to hear from you!
