Magpie Monday - A montage & a driftwood table

Today's magpie Monday over at Me and my shadow's blog I decided to show you a few of the second hand things I've used in my lounge. My coffee table that Papa made me last October is more 'upcycled' more than 'second hand' but I guess they kinda mean the same thing. I Love to see new usable stuff created from old materials. It was made from driftwood found by the river we live next to and You can read about here My New Coffee table. The union jack tray on the table was found in the charity shop for £1.50.

I love photo montage walls and I have made a start on one in my lounge. All the frames are from the charity shop and range in price from 50p up to £2 each. I still have the other half of the wall to finish so I'm still on the lookout for nice shaped frames.

Pop over to Me and My shadow to see what the other Magpie's have found.
