A little while back, Grandma and Grandad had the grandkids for the day, which meant that me and the Mr could have a peek around our local antique shop:
Imagine an oldy-worldly shop with loads of little rooms, filled to the rafters with odds and ends, with not a level surface to be seen anywhere (not buggy-friendly in any way, whatsoever).
We love it!
And so, we purchased the lovely pine dresser for our kitchen and also this little, unassuming pine shelving unit:
All it needed was a coat or two of spray paint (I'm just too lazy for the real stuff) and voilà! A great set of shelves for our downstairs cloakroom!
Not the best of photos, but I think you get the idea. I also found some great vintage photos in the antique shop too:
I also raided my stash of lovely vintage books to provide some kitsch reading material, should anyone require it. My fav is probably this:
A first-edition 1963 copy of some good old Enid Blyton. I definitely didn't buy this, so can only surmise that I must have 'acquired' it from mum and dad's. . Hmmmmmmmmm. Not a word.
