Flea market my house..

Blogtober 4th

I found this great little cabinet and folding sides table at our local market on the weekend - very happy! Going to give them a super dooper paint job and transform them! I love the splayed legs and retro round corners on my funky cabinet, and I think the table will be very handy for big family gatherings, heaps better than an old card table.! Not sure yet if I'll paint it or restain it. Stay tuned for the big makeover photos!

Just thought I'd give you a quick look at how the tablecloth is progressing - quite slowly but steadily. The colours look good in this shot, I think it is going to be pretty when it's done.
I am joining as I go, which is different to the pattern but I think it will be easier in the long run.

Hoping tomorrow to show you a big ta da - I am nearly finished another crochet blankie, looking forward to showing you all!

Have a great day!

  1. They're awesome finds!! I can't wait to find some time this weekend to uncover some of my own! :)

  2. You have a great eye for bargains. Lots of fun.

  3. Wow, you've got lots of work ahead of you there. I agree that the fold down table will be HEAPS better than an old card table at family gatherings. Taller, bigger, and just much better.

    Thanks for joining in again this week. Lou.

  4. I just learnt to crochet is so much fun! I love it! I am still a bit shonky and things aren't always even but I think that's a good reason to practice! :) the cabinet here is great! All the best for Blogtoberfest!

  5. Oh wow what fantastic finds!!

  6. Gorgeous colours you have chosen for your crochet. Will look forward to seeing the furniture transformations - good hunting!
