These old theatre letters are amongst my FAVE vintage pieces & so appropro doncha think....?! I've had the mirror for almost 10 years...Another HR find it's actually the door of a wardrobe....!
And it's sitting on the hutch I bought at the market AGES ago....Mr SVJ cut the base down from a HUGE wardrobe & we found some old ply to back it marrying the three....
When I come home from work I chuck my $5.00 vintage leather op shop satchel at the base of my dress form, hang my jacket across her shoulders & any bling I may have worn to work that day around her neck & make a bee line for the fridge for a chardy....!!
LOVE thes vintage suitcases & they are chokkas with my vintage Christmas Treasures....!!
One of two French doors I found in the HR....Another of my FAVE pieces....The sign was a LUCKY swap meet find.
The ironstone bowl below is filled with bun feet from old club lounges & we use them in projects as the need arises....!
The table is also from the HR along with the pine top also salvaged from the street.
The chair with the pink (blecccckkkkk) cover is a green velvet piece that my little Harley can't keep her claws off of....Hence the cover....Bloody little vandal....!!
My FAVE green ladder & various Treasures in the cabinet Mr SVJ made for me....
And again.... :o)
1950's metal tulip garden spikes on my ALL TIME FAVE chippy red & cream stool....ADORE this stool just quietly....!!!
My tip shop trunk....ALSO filled with Vintage Christmas.... :o) !
Now this dining table is my ABSOLUTE ABSOLUTE favourite table....It was found in the Hard Rubbish in front of a Scout Hall....YUCKY laminate covered the LOVELY pine top which MR SVJ removed before sanding, trimming & staining....I cleaned off the legs introducing them to 'poly' & WALLAH.... :o)
The office chairs at the front are from the HR....LOVE these....And then there's a black Bentwood & two chippy green French farm house chairs around the other side.
LOVE the dark top against the pale wood floor....
.....hahahahaha....A friend came by tonight & asked "Why do you have that there...?" Ummmmmm....because I like it there.... :o)
I know it may seem a bit odd to have a vintage piece of gym equipment, a vaulting horse no less in my living area under my kitchen bench but it makes me smile....I was coming home from the HR one day & it was just there on the side of the road....HOW could I resist...?? Mr SVJ is going to put a base in it as it's hollow & then he'll cut into the front face & make a door which will hang off chains when open....I'll use it to store blankets etc in....I may change the pleather top out though for some cow hide....YEEHAW!!!
Well that's 240 degrees of our living space....I'll take some pics of the kitchen over the weekend to show you the rest of the room....!
Wherever you are, I hope your week has been happy, safe & filled with as much SVJ as you could possibly handle....!
Cheers for now,
