more transformations

last time i showed you my entry i said i'd finished. well, i lied ;)
i've changed it a few times since then!
you can what it looked liked before here.
the mirror was from a deceased estate garage sale, and i've finally given in and painted it white.
the candlesticks were found at the Chandler markets last week.
not bad for $10 each!
they got the white treatment straight away.
they were very 'Balinese' looking before.
i love how over sized they are on a smaller table.
they team well with the mirror i think.
Mike has gone to Melbourne for a few days to attend a Maths conference for work.
he bought me these roses before he left :)
I saw him off in the taxi at 5am this morning.
i was then up, so got stuck into the house work and some painting.
i started and finished this boudoir stool.
a bit of white paint and some very soft pink chenille type fabric
got stapled around the foam base.
it has the sweetest love heart back.
pretty in the bathroom or corner of a little girl's room.

here are the before pics....

only one more sleep till market morning :))

  2. I love the job you have done with your entry way, it looks fabulous. I just love the chair too. I want one for the girls bedroom but have to wait till we get a four bedroom house as there is no room with 3 kids sharing one room. Bit of squeeze to fit anything else in there. Have fun a at the markets tomorrow, can't wait to see what you find.

  3. Great creations Kate...absolutely love what you've achieved!!
    Always a pleasure coming over here to visit

    Happy weekend to you, Gail xx

  4. Lovely. I have some pieces that need to be re-done and don't know where to start.

  5. Love all of the pieces, they are gorgeous. You did a fantastic job. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs Marty

  6. It's gorgeous! You have a lovely blog here :)

  7. Fabulous work! I've got some balinese candles like that, think I need to give them a lick of paint too, they look great in white
