For quite a while now I've been on the lookout for a sweet little desk for my boys to use for doing homework, looking up "stuff" on Google and working on projects. I have been very inspired by cute study areas such as these...
Aren't they all GORGEOUS?!? I have been itching to create a cute little study nook of our own and finally in Vinnie's this morning I found this...
A gorgeous wooden vintage desk for just $10!!! AND they now have FREE delivery! I LOVE it, 4 drawers for lots of paper and craft supplies and the 2 shelves will be perfect for books, mini-figs, pottery creations and whatever else the munchkins deem necessary :-)
I also spotted this fab chair last month at council clean up, FREE on the side of the road!
I am planning to paint the desk a lovely pale vintage blue (I won't need to bother giving it the distressed look, my boys will sort that out ;-), red gloss on the chair and lots of little bits and pieces on the desk such as the lovely retro orange lamp I got earlier this year at a flea market.
Tip: If you are ever looking for inspiration to decorate your kids' rooms you need look no further than The Boo and The Boy - a fantastic blog full of gorgeous rooms, designs and ideas!
There is no particular theme to the little collection of things I am sharing today, just some pretty items I have picked up here and there...
A pair of pretty dishes - $1 each.
A gorgeous turquoise Royal Winton jug - $4.
Another vintage Persinware scales - $3. I already have one of these in red, I love the fact that they were made in Australia.
When I found this little clay snail for 50 cents at a market I couldn't resist painting him blue :-)
A cute little birdie - $1.
A pretty jar with etched floral design - 50 cents.
Yes!!! Another Figgjo piece in the Market design - this little square bowl was only $1!
And finally, at last a piece of Pyrex in the Butterprint design in TURQUOISE! I have wanted this design and colour forever and was lucky enough to win it over on Emma's blog! Thanks again Emma, I love it :-)
OK, a little warning - you know I am a Christmas FREAK and with it being November I am officially excited and feel a festive post coming on very soon!!!
Hi, My name is Alice and this is my space to share my vintage finds and things I love. Having lived in Sydney, Australia for many years our family of five returned to Dublin, Ireland to live in July 2014.
Formerly a graphic designer, I'm currently a stay-at-home-mum with 3 little munchkins. I love all things vintage, particularly kitchenware and cute decor for my boys. My favourite way to relax is to go wandering through flea markets and op shops/thrift stores and I love sharing my favourite finds on this blog :-)
