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!

  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.

  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.
