$5.00 Sideboard is in place....

My bargain $5.00 sideboard is finally in place. This is it's second position, just near the living room. I love this combination of my favourite blue and white jars and this creamy, hand thrown jug and bowl my Sister bought me. I think the pink peonies and twisted willow set it off.

It is an awkward space, beside the back door and under an air conditioning unit.
I thought by putting it here, it would take the emphasis of the overhead unit
...and it does.
The sign was a bargain find at a Mic!!! The lantern was a Christmas gift off my Niece, Heather...thanks chook! I love it.

This was the first place I put it. Next to the big fireplace in the Kitchen...
wasn't to keen on it there. These photos were taken before I painted
the walls Chalk.

A few vintage pieces of mine set it off and it did look nice there, just a bad spot.
Small people kept running trucks into it!
I am happy with it now in it's current spot.
Next I will show you what we did with the living room, post white makeover, but still pre French door makeover. We are getting our front veranda started tomorrow, so stay tuned,
Ness xx
PS- As always, I would love to hear what you think. x


  1. Ness, the sideboard looks absolutely beautiful. You did a fantastic job on it -still can't believe you got such it for $5!
