Found in the skip... Pfft some people have no respect.....I think its circa 1920...or should I say Google says lol...Its an Aluminum Metal Baking Flour Shaker. It looks Hand soldered. Good condition with signs of wear and oxidation. Nice addition to my kitchen tin ware collection.
I have been loving Black and white stripes for a while now and I've already incorporated the carnival stripe in my lampshade but I just cant get enough of monochromes so I bought myself some Chevron Riley Blake Fabric and made myself a sofa cushion...
Found some lovely items in the charity shop in Galashiels yesterday whilst out shopping with mummy.
First was a gorgeous circular tile that I thought would be a great pot stand to save my new oak worktops from any unsightly marks but decided it was too pretty so I displayed it on my car booty plate rack!!!
Next...A Cath Kidston bag...something I have been after for a long time and even better it was brand new.
Ordered some Oak from Ebay for the worktops. I made this little side unit out of a pine cabinet my mum gave me. I just added some legs off cut from an old tea trolley using some dowels and a drill attached them to the bottom, and added a worktop.
Here is a pic of the lamp base I found in the skip the other day. It was antique bronze in colour. Ive given it a plain white undercoat and im now thinking on hand painting it in a colourful Aztec design. turquoise, reds, yellows and all the colours of the rainbow lol...
I went to the local skip today to dump some of the rubbish I have acquired over the past few months from decorating the kitchen. In the skip were two lovely lamps. This one I only needed to give a wee wash its bronze antique in colour with a velvet lampshade.
My elderly neighbour gave me some dining chairs yesterday. They had belonged to her Grandmother and had been lying up in her attic for years. I mixed up some of my handmade pure white chalk paint and made a patchwork cover for the seat.
