Today I did a spot of charity shopping I came across a lovely kitchen dresser but managed to talk my way out of purchasing it, it seems that charity hops in Manchester have boomed in price they was asking £90 for a flat packed display cabinet. I don't usually give flat packed furniture a second look but it was the perfect wood finish with pristine glass doors.
Today is an exciting day we have decided to have a new kitchen fitted so we headed to B&Q as they are having a 20% discount on kitchens this weekend, and to make things a little bit more lighter on the bill we also have a trade card so an extra 20% discounted. I am in two minds of white or cream my heart is screaming white I hate making decisions so quick its a new kitchen and we have waited so long to decorate. You all have not seen the dreaded one half of the kitchen its hanging off the wall as I type. I will keep you all updated this week on ideas that spring to mind.
So onto the bench cushion, a mile away is a junk warehouse its full to the ceiling of junk some beautiful and the odd old mattress thrown on top. I swear you need a hard helmet to enter this place most of the men are polish their and they don't speak a work of English so asking them to climb over pianos and crawl in between wardrobes is a task itself then explaining what you can see is impossible. The poor guy nearly broke his neck pulling this bench cushion out from under the junk. It was £3 and he had another but he was not even going to locate it because seriously it would of taken a week. Somebody had hand crafted this cushion it was patch worked beautifully and not a mark in sight.
I really don't know why they threw this out, the junk shop is not charity run so its basically house clearances.
So I gave the seat cushion a lovely hot wash and it turned out lovely. For £3 its a bargain I hope to put it in the garden once we get the sunshine again.
Whilst on the way out I spoke to the owner and asked for some bizarre garden furnishings, the last time I was in there they had been donated the whole entire window display of House of Frazer, gigantic faux tree's with garden lights included. I came across this ladder he charged me £3 so I tried to fit it into the car but it would not fit so silly me said its ok I will walk home with it. So off I trotted in the rain one arm clinging to the ladder I had so many drivers looking at me I was just laughing to myself. I walked a mile and eventually got home without being mugged of a ladder.
Once the weather cheers up I will paint it up with a little distressing.
I love my little bargains this weekend I hope to find more after the bank holiday.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
