And of course while we where away we managed to get the chance to visit a few local charity shops, junk stores, flea markets and one brilliant carboot!
So as usual here some of our booty...
This vist was no exception, I kick thing off by pick up another foot stool for £3, I had been looking for another one to recover as we are always short of extra seats when we have friends round and these stools and really comfortable. By chance this one had exactly the same legs as my little square one I got last year...
I also picked up this beautiful etching which now has pride of place in the living room.
We are going to strip the old vanish off as its been knocked or worn on in large areas anyway, we made a start with the sander at the weekend and I think they will come up really well with a little beeswax.
We have also been doing a lot of work on the G Plan sideboard we brought in Oswestry a few months back, it had some rather huge scratches up he front which is why we got it so cheap (£40!) so we have painted the worst bit and sanded and waxed the rest. Unfortunately its to big to fit in out Rav so Richards Dad will drop it off for us at some point. I cant wait!!
Phew...I could do with a holiday now.
