Waiting in the wings......... for inspiration

A 1940's inspired red music table.

Well its really been a super busy week. I've broken 3, yes 3 drills. Two hand helds have worn out batteries and my Bosch hammer drill that has been doing all the work has blown up! Been out and bought a new De Walt battery drill and driver. Now feeling poor.

Sales at the antique unit are steady, lots of fabric sold, some toys and I'm happy so far.

Hope every one else is having a productive week.


  1. Congratulations on starting to get sales from your antique unit shop. I always love seeing what magic you make happen with old items.

  2. Goodness you have been busy! It great to hear that the sales are coming in at your new outlet. You have some lovely new pieces on the go, i especially like top of the pink legged table :) x

  3. Wow. Lots of lovely furniture. I especially like the chair with the grasses or wheat stalks.

  4. Fab news about sales from the unit! I like the pink legs on that table!! - I'd love a pinky, purply furnished summer house! (dreams..)

  5. Well done with sales from your Unit - very exciting. Hope you have a good week.

  6. Love the candy twist legs on the furniture, Not so easy to paint i guess.....xx
