Now, once again I'm joining in with Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for her weekly Thrifty Treasures party.
I bought a few things at Sunday's car boot sale. One was a set of six heavy-duty wheels (another buyer told me they were wheels for shop cabinets). I have ambitions of building a pull-truck out of some old sheets of wood I have, to help transport bags of compost etc. around the garden. (I say 'ambitions' because...well, don't hold your breath.)
But you don't want to see those, do you? Oh, OK:
The star buy was this Singer sewing machine table, already painted and with a wonderful piece of wood on top:
It's not in working order of course and I got it for £20 which I was very pleased about:
I originally had plans of using it in the garden for plant display, but I can't possibly leave that wood to the elements so it's come indoors and into the 'breakfast room'.
The other treasure I picked up, and for a mere £2, was this pretty firescreen:
Beautiful embroidery but as you may be able to see, lots of water stains:
