Shopping Eases The Pain!

I have been ordering lots of furniture from work as we are about to have a price rise (well that's how I am justifying it to the husband!)
I bought a gorgeous dressing table or desk which was the last of it's kind so I had to grab it. It is covered in mirrors like the Laura Ashley Venetian furniture range. The mirrors on the one I have bought have an aged patina.
Sorry, no photos of it as yet. I am leaving it on the shop floor for as long as possible as I have no room for it.
When we move it is destined to become a fab OTT entry table!

I actually got this mirror for free as the glass was broken. An easy thing to get fixed but one i keep forgetting about!

This chest of drawers is for my daughter. She has promised me that she won't draw on it!

I still love this cushion by Shabby Chic but at nearly $300 I can't justify the price.

I must have this cute enamel toothbrush holder! It is from an English web store called Berry Red.

Oh, and this fab antique brass tap! We do door knobs, lights, handles and locks in this finish at work, but alas, no taps or other plumbing fittings!

I adore the sink in this kitchen, it would be so much easier to keep clean than stainless steel. I love the free standing units on either side and the tea towel skirt under the sink.

I have wanted these enamel Reiss pots for years but have never come across them.

And finally, a picture of a to die for kitchen - pink, white, retro yet romantic. Bliss!

  4. Yes it is bliss. I would take it all. I have never seen those enamel pans. I love them! I love the new furniture too. When are you moving?
