I've picked up some great pieces in the last week or so, none more so than this vanity table, that I think will work beautifully as a desk.
The best pieces come with a story right? I actually bought this one on eBay from someone in Newcastle. He left it out on the verandah for me, as the house was empty ready to be sold and he was at work. So I struggled with this thing up the steep drive way, lifted it into the car and realised that the mirror frame that was still attached on one side was never going to fit in the car.
Honestly I cried. Harry was chasing a cat he'd discovered in the garden and I couldn't even think. AND I had no chocolate on hand. So I had a bit of a cry there in a street in Broadmeadow over a table. Of course, there was no way I was leaving this thing behind, so I got myself together and walked over to the next door neighbours front door, little man in hand, and asked to borrow a saw. You should have seen the mans face - a grown woman, teary, with a two year old, asking for a saw! When I started to explain he held his hand up and said 'Yes, I'll see on the driveway'.
So I sawed that thing off, thanked the man profusely, got the desk into my car and headed off. If you follow me on Facebook you'll know that I then went to McDonalds where a brawl ensued amongst a bunch of men over who knows what. Harry thought it was great fun and as each man yelled at the other Harry would yell out random words too. So I inhaled a burger and we left.
I also picked up a few bits and pieces for me... a lovely old blanket to use as a throw rug now its getting colder, a great cane basket, and a little mirror.
In other news can I share that I am having THE MOST hideous time finding knobs for everything I am working on? I've had three sets delivered so far and all of them I've sent back. IT"S DRIVING ME INSANE!!! Honestly, if I was looking for a business idea that would be it. Or I suppose I could work out how to make my own ceramic ones... but on the bright side, I am LOVING working on this!
It's a very obscure photo, but you guys get the idea right???
