Apologies for the appalling title, but I couldn't think of anything better. I was chuffed to bits last week when I found this perfectly sized small.. (sideboard sounds a bit grand) cupboard for my kitchen/dining room. I've been scouring chazza's, auctions and junk shops for months to no avail when I suddenly remembered a furniture recycling centre near my Dad. I couldn't believe my luck when the first thing I clapped eyes on was this.
For a change I had remembered to take along my tape rule and once measured I snapped it up for the bargain price of £20.
It's quite scratched and a bit knackered but I've been reliably informed the Yew veneer is suitable for a paint job, so all being well, watch out for the big reveal.
I've been working on something else recently - a peg bag.(can you contain your excitement?) My previous Poundland peg basket had disintegrated and as you can see, a replacement was urgently required. How hard could it be ?
After googling a few 'Peg Bag' tutorials I cobbled this together with some left over curtain fabric, random buttons, ribbon and a coathanger.
Whaddya reckon ? I'm never going to be a contender for the Great British Sewing Bee but it can't look that bad as I've already got an order for another one.
I'm linking to Magpie Monday and Op Shop Show-Off. So come on, what bargains have you found recently and what have you made ? Do tell.
