H & W had a triple sleeper, we got it for them because when they had normal bunk-beds they would always end up sleeping together in the bottom bunk like a pile of puppies and as they got bigger it was such a squash got them a triple sleeper so they could at least sleep in a double bed.
Then this year they finally moved into their own beds and the triple sleeper went on eBay. So, we had to sort out their whole room as not only was the triple sold but we also picked up a new bed and wardrobes for them.
Of course this meant a big sort out, we got rid of loads of stuff and while we were at the tip we managed to pick up some bargains!! (Remember my sister tells her kids that the tip is Auntie Sarah's furniture shop?!!)
This cute little table that I am going to paint and sell:
And this was my most fabby find, I have been watching mirrors like this on eBay because I wanted one to go over our bed. The auctions have been ending on £40-£50 so way over budget. And they had this at the tip for £8!!:
Can you believe someone just dumped this? It has a couple of chips in the frame but I used a bit of gold Rub And Buff and you can barely see them.
We also found this art deco sideboard, which I know looks a little uninspiring but you have to look past dark and dingy wood to the lines and shape of the piece:
Yesterday afternoon I put "The Sound Of Music" on the telly and painted it whilst I sang away (much to the boys disgust!!).
Today, after waxing it, it's all finished:
This one is done in Annie Sloan's Duck Egg and Old White with clear and dark wax.
This furniture painting lark is becoming rather addictive!!
Hope you've all had nice weekends, we feel like we need another to recover!!
PS I'm selling a painted sideboard on eBay, will add the link when I've done it....
