Lolly Shop...

Hi all. What a fabulous idea for an old piece of furniture and easy to do. Some white linen, old locker numbers and chalkboard paint.
From the ever inspiring Country Living.
It reminds me of an old hardware/lolly shop piece.
Hope you are inspired!
Ness xx

  2. Hi, Ness, You inspire everyone goes without saying. I love this idea as well and you could aply it to any piece of furniture to funk it up....take care x

  3. Always inspired by your beautiful pictures :))))
    And reminded...that i NEED a mannquin like that....
    i also like the cupboards...maybe I´d put....hmmm...what is the word for that in know what we use to make crate/fence/cage to keep our chickens inside????...if you can ever get an idea out from my stupid description...well that´s what I´d use as well in front of the fabric:))))

  4. Lolly shop! I like that! What a great piece of furniture. I love the chalkboard paint on it. I have a couple of old mannequins that I love. They get moved all over the house from room to room and dressed in different attire all the time.

  14. Love the cupboard, a lovely idea!

  15. This would not only be gorgeous in a home but I imagine it as a unique store counter.

  16. Hi Ness, there is something about this picture I find inspiring and I can't put my finger on it. I think it must be for me, the rustic, the timber, the tone, the blackboard and definitely the mannequin. You know, when you love a picture and your blood pressure rises, this does it for me.

  17. Love the chalkboard on the cupboard
    and all the other photos. I have
    always wanted a chalkboard wall
    however, don't know where to put
    it in our condo. This gives me
    some ideas.

    As always your blog inspires me.

  20. Great image! Love the use of linen and the chalkboard. These simple things can give such a great new life to furniture and joinery and create a beautiful story within your home. I am always on the look out for one of those mannequins. Have fun, Lisa
