It was love at first sight when I clapped my eyes on this cute retro sideboard! It just needed a bit of granny chic charm, how could I resist! A quick lick of paint and a sweet retro fabric lining later and here it is packed with all my goodies!
Check out my latest charity shop find, I am seriously loving it! It only cost me a fiver and after some granny chic styling it was good to go. I was chuffed to bits cos I got to delve into my stash of buttons and threads and even use my cute applique ducks!
Sure it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’ve made it my own, I love it and I aint gonna see it on anyone else!
If you are lucky enough to have a granny still alive, get yourself into her wardrobe, like NOW!
Those of us who love a bit of vintage and retro spice in our homes, probably love stores like Cath Kidston, Orla Kiely, and Laura Ashley to name but a few.
That’s cool if you’ve got the purse for it, but in this economic climate many of us haven’t, and if that’s you, I’ve got just the job!
Grab your coat and get on down to your local charity shops, boy can you bag yourself some great finds. Then you’ve got the likes of car boot sales and thrift markets. For these my top tip is wait till closing that’s when you grab the bargins they want to get rid of and you want to pocket!
The hottest thing with this kinda vintage thrift is, it’s unlikey anyone else will have it, you can pat yourself on the back because it was cheap and you were eco- friendly! Best yet if the kids, ( or being honest me ), break it it didn’t cost the earth!
So here are just a few of my finds, I’ve gotta be honest I need to scale down!
