I have to share this!
As most of you will know I am in the throes of interior design madness at the moment, determined to get the house the way that I want it. The Man Den is done (a post will follow on this!), the kitchen is 85% the way that I want it, the utility room now has the utility items I wanted but needs something to make it look less like a white appliance dump room, the playroom come dining room is done, our room and the bathroom is done. That leaves the boy’s rooms (Taylor’s especially needs so TLC) and the lounge. I have a curious mix of new and old in the house although ” vintage touches” is probably what you could call the style.
I’ve been scouring Ebay, car boot sales, charity shops and more looking for odd bits to build interest and my latest find, an absolute gem which cost a measly £5 and which looks fabulous is…………..
A gorgeous vintage Singer sewing machine.
Beautiful isn’t she?
I adore this piece and it is out and proud on my sideboard now looking fabulous. Being such a great price means that I can look at her without getting that “Oh My God – HOW much did I spend?” feeling.
I’ll be updating the blog with other finds as I go along. I have to know though – what do you consider your best bargain find for your home?
I love a bargain, especially when it comes to my current interior design fetish. I am transforming my home bit by bit and aim to record my progress here.
This morning I hit the charity shops with my eagle-eyed 6 year old looking for bits and pieces to work with or display and we weren’t disappointed.
First up we found some lovely vintage-looking sheet music for £1.99. I’m not 100% sure what I’ll do with it at this point although I have some ideas which centre around a photo frame and a black and white picture of the kids.
The second find was a £2.99 1955 copy of “District Nursing” .I plan to build a feature shelf of older books in similar colours and this caught my eye. Even better it is not just a pretty book, it is a fascinating book so it is a win/win.
So, what do you think folks? A good morning’s work?
