The new dining area.

It's been a while since I shared some of my thrifty finds and I've been loving decorating the house with lots of thrifty finds (and a few special new purchases).

This table was actually found by my Dad on hard rubbish (when people put free items on their curbs) and it's really well made. I haven't had time yet but when I do I'll sand it all down and stain the top. I am unsure whether to paint any of it or just enjoy the real wood- any thoughts? I like having a dining room table that I don't feel too precious about. When we first moved in I used a range of thrifted chairs including those from my 1950's chrome table and rattan chairs (which were also found on hard rubbish ).
After browsing online I fell in love with these beautiful replica eames DSW chairs and browsed online till I found a coupon code. After selling my old dining room table, I had almost enough to get the chairs and I'm just loving the new dining room set up. The chairs are light, bright and perfect for our new space.

Next on the list is changing up the pale green curtains for some crisp white ones and probably some table sanding. The lovely flowers on the table are fresh from the front yard. I'm loving setting up the new house. Have you ever found something amazing for free?

  1. Love those chairs! We're building a new house next year so I'm waiting for that before buying and rejuvenating furniture! I will be sure to use your blog for ideas when the time comes!!!

    1. Thanks kirsty! How exciting to be building a new house. I look forward to hearing about all the great ideas you come up with and seeing any upcycled furniture xx
