Buying furniture, spring flowers and eclipse…

We’ve just bought a table and four chairs to refurbish for whopping £10 (15 USD).

As you can see, the table has fair amount of scratches, but I kinda like the dark veneer.
( And I just love this jar!).
I’m planning to go crazy with spray paint color when it comes to painting table & chair legs (they are metal).

I love the ’60’s style’ shape of the chairs!

And here’s some furniture I didn’t buy for various reasons (size, hubby threatening to leave):

I really liked this 60’s dresser. And look at the price!

60s dresser I loved  the unusual, quirky shape ! I was planning to completely change the color though.

Still, I decided that this lovely dresser is too big & overwhelming for our living room. I’m still on the lookout…

Vintage school desk. I wanted it to be hubby’s desk, but again, it’s to large!

Also, we’ve experienced an spectacular eclipse this past Friday, so here’s hubby snapshot of that occurrence.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

  5. Mila, it looks like you picked up some great finds! The table and chairs should transform beautifully with paint. Melissa

  6. I love the old antique desk. I wish we had a place in our house for it. Though, I’m sure that I would be nervous about someone breaking it or spilling coffee on top of it. The tulip photos are beautiful, too.
