New Old

Something needed changing after the introduction of these chairs. We talked over a few ideas and decided that something MUST be done, a pendant light, caster wheels, orchids... or a new glass cabinet?!

My darling mum generously passed this sucker my way and I have to say, I feel like a grown up having it in my house. It's currently a pretty heavy, dark piece of furniture but a coat of white to the inside should liven it up a bit. I shuffled the frames around and stole the chalkboard from here.

An improvement? 

jackie, what do you think?

While you're here- have a look at what the postie sent me!


  1. Looks so much better now! And I think the little cabinet thingy will look great just painted on the inside! It's funny how some things just need to spend a little time sitting around before you figure out what works!

  2. LOVE it! What a great space! Those chairs look perfect and I love the blackboard. Just fabulous!

  3. Love it, lucky you! I personally like it the way it is as your space is so light and airy but you have to live it it haha, so I'll be keen to see what you do :)
    Ps. loving the table now with just those gorgeous four chairs :)

  4. Looks like such a lovely space-and so tidy!!! Please tell me you only photographed the tidy side of the room;)

    PS Beautiful teacup...

  5. I think it looks gorgeous and stylish. A lick of white paint would only enhance the look I think xo

  6. That tea cup is stunning! Beautiful colours.

  7. I do love a good cabinet... xx

  8. Much less cluttered without the other chairs. Love your little hanging baubles too! Jx

  9. Looks fab. Love those chairs - such a great find!

  10. Looks great! Love your cushion.

    What colour if your feature wall?

  11. This is such a beautiful space, love it all. x
