Ok so I didn't get to the charity shop this week, I know I know...Shocking! I've been quite busy and My 11 year old was off school with a cold so I didn't get round to going. For this weeks Magpie Monday over at Me and My Shadow I'm going to show you some items of furniture I've managed to get my hands on for next to nothing.
Firstly when I moved into this house 18 months ago I had no wardrobes because my old house had built in ones so I was living out of boxes at first and felt so frustrated. Then after being here about two weeks Papa popped to the tip to throw away some junk and as he got there he pulled up next to a fella who was dragging a wardrobe from the back of a 4 x 4.
Hubby asked him "Are you throwing that?"
The Fella answered "yes...would you like it?" Then added "It is brand new...I had it handmade for my place a couple of years back and never ended up using it. It's been collecting dust in my barn ever since"
I was thrilled and I know pine is a bit dated now but it is a really good, solid piece of furniture and I'll probably end up painting it eventually with a nice Cath Kidston paint.
My second item is a bench set that I won on ebay for a fiver. They are still selling in Ikea for £46 per stool and £90 for the bench. That's a saving of £224! Result!
