Love Thy Neighbour..

My good friend and neighbour was clearing out her backyard shed and she asked me if I would like this before she took it the tip.

Of course I said "Yes Please!!!!"

From glossy black to wonderful white.I love how the black came through when I sanded it.

It now sits atop my handy mans tall boy..And I'm quietly pleased with the result.
I added this little lamp later...

My fab neighbour also gave me these gorgeous glass candleabras..

Yes ...Definetly Love Thy Neighbour..


  1. Dont you just love a suprise piece you never expected coming - and how gorgeous it can turn out to be with a coat of paint (and some effort from you)!! Well done it looks great. I love the candelabras...

  7. So, so pretty and a beautiful lamp!!! May I ask, did you prime then paint, or just paint right over the brown. Crazy question I know, but I have a piece with that finish that I'd like to do over. Again, what a beautiful piece!!! Alyssa
