:op shop finds:

Yesterday when I was visiting my mum, we went to the local op shop to see what treasures we could find..
First up we found some chairs..

I bought 3 of them for $12 each and I think they will look fabulous with a re-vamp.
Re cover the cushions, back rest and arm rests(might even just take them off altogether) with some  fabric like this maybe.

Next we found some great old lights..

They are actually all wired for 240v but I am thinking that they would look great with some candles in them over the dining table on the patio for summer..
The top of the light is copper so I might even be able to polish them up a bit..
They were a bargain at only $5 each..
Because Kelsi was with us, we couldn't leave the op shop without a  toy  and some books.
I hope you all have a great weekend.


  1. Oh my, that light is amazing. Fantastic find!

  2. Nice finds - that fabric would be perfect for the chair


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I love reading them and try to answer each and everyone.Tanya
