For many of us, creating the home we want is an evolving and long term process. Sometimes it takes a long time to find just the right something.
What's the latest thing you purchased for your home? (Photos encouraged!)
A new drinks cabinet for my kicthen diner, the cabinet is vintage, but it's new to me!
oh might have to rethink as that wall back on to my shower so I can't do anything to it unless it's glued on or it's painted
What do you wish you knew before moving into your current home?
What's the latest in Glass Technology in Australia?
Latest plans house extension
Do you consider Feng Shui in furnishing your home?
Brandi, can you get it off again, like regular wallpaper?
Lyn hehehe may be not..plus I'm not as patient as any of you..I'll try it on something small first might think of something else for the wall :)
though Brandi's bathroom idea I can use on the laundry linen's cupboard door I've got ugly sliding ones down here..it's nice that don't have to cut just glue it all on..simple..lol and since I make cards got lots of paper to play with :)
anyone after a drink cabinet ?:) wandering in the Mill market Geelong
went to see if I can buy a coat rack..they must have sold my favourite coat rack :(
ended up with these instead lol locally made out of scrap..unit out of fence palings..the table mess mate and Blackwood :)
I'm having lunch will give you her details later..took a business card..reasonable pricing :)
left overs..lunch with a view
loved this piece too but looked a bit too dark so I gave it a pass :)
Great pieces Vy, are they going to beach house or home?
SueM ..you're welcome
looked everywhere..cleaned out my car as hubby booked it in for a service tomorrow ..no luck..cleaned out my back pack..my wallet no luck either..thought it might be down at the house..as was in such a rush getting back to avoid peak traffic..then it occurred to me..I had my phone out whilst browsing and well sometimes I slip things into the phone lol
so here it is lol
wuff for the beach house..I'm decluttering so will have to get rid of stuff lol we were given lots to furnish the house by relatives odds and ends when we first got it..I'm going through and sorting it out so anything that don't suit will go..just too much clutter..no room..
the table will be downstairs as a hall table ..the unit will be a bedside for one of the bedrooms.
I don't have room in our apartment for furniture ..
just got a quote for our dining chairs $225+ gst per chair to reupholster excluding the leather..leather will cost $350-800 per hide..will need 2 hides for the 8 chairs lol thought it might be a bit cheaper guess I was wrong lol
That's an amazing transformation!
looks great..you've got the magic touch Brandi
lovely find darylwright
I never knew you could paint upholstery! I guess it has to be a smooth cloth. And reasonably clean.
Here fabric gets ingrained with dust and salt. I vacuum it, but eventually it starts to rot and splits. And that too after just a few years. Our grand cats don't help. We are about to get them for their summer hoildays. Son and partner are going to Spain and Portugal for 3 weeks. Cats express their dissatisfaction by clawing carpets and sofas. ... ah well. I spritz them with water when I catch them, so they do it while I'm not looking.
That vase is fantastic. Wonderful how something pops up that goes so perfectly with something you already gave. Thst's serendipity.
Have you thought of getting an artist to sketch them? I have some, from Sydney. Was happy with all, except for my daughter's, will get that re done some day. The one of my hubby is a caricature and him to a T. There's one of me as a young woman, but not on display. I'm glad I got my first hubby and Mum done, as they're now deceased.
i did one each of my children when they were very young. They're ok.
Tribbletrouble ..yes the oldest two got theirs done as caricature ..not the youngest..when I have time I'll sit down and sketch them ..I can draw vaguely lol have done sketches of friends not of family..
of a friend ..
That's good! Have a go at your kids when they're watching TV. They sit still then! My daughter had her thumb in her mouth.
and another ..I sucked at art at school hehehe
I do them from photos much easier..kids can't sit still for very long
I can see the personalities in those people.
jacinta_08 oh they are so very cute..
@Gallifrey I would love to see more of your kitchen. Can you upload any more pics? (Could even put it in the before/after section if you also have shots of it before an update)
So many amazing ideas on this thread.
