Thursday evening 10.45 PM; what happened with the day?
I've been working; had a meeting at work until 7.00 PM, came home, had a tuna/pasta salad for dinner, got two phone calls and made some pics of the garden. (coming soon)
And now the house. I am showing you a few pics before and after, a few peeks of things I've been working on and a few tags I just made.
We are waiting for new lighting (sold out now but back in the store soon) so these pics are just a few. And more pics to share in a few weeks.Please; be patient with me:)
Our side table;We bought the mahogany side table 8 years ago. It's antique and when we bought it it was in pieces. For a reasonable price but it defnitely needed some severe restoration. Marcel did a terrific job and it's one of my favorite pieces of furniture. The bowl in the right is one of the things I inherited from my parents. The bowl is more than 80 years old. It belonged to my great grandparents on my fathers' side of the family.. They had a bakery and it was displayed in their store filled with traditional sweets.(As far as I know)
The glass bowl on the left was given to me for my birthday by Marcel a few years ago.
The little buddha was given to us by my niece. She travelled a few months in Asia and brought this back home for us
The little white porcelain bowl on the plate is etched with roses. When you light a candle in it it looks amazing. The clock? Another birthday gift for Marcel and me from our best friends.The silver ware is something that I am collecting. I am buying a piece now and than. The round bowl up front is originally made to serve jam in; the two large small pillars are sugarcastors The light? A bargain; €9 bought by me last year...
We bought two of these chairs; yes...grey and gingham
Next is our closet. Found in a container 21 years ago Imagine; why do people want to get rid of it??? But we are thankful; now it's ours :) And restored with love by Marcel:
This beauty needed a new color - Polar Blue by Histor- and knobs of white porcelain:
Before; storage space beneath the stairs:
And after ;
I am working on 2 of these boxes; I am giving them a "coat" of polar blue too
Adding a few knobs:
And show you the result this upcoming weekend!
And at last; two tiny tags I made:
I hope you enjoyed the mini tour and loads of pics.
