magpie monday :: WOOD AND GLASS

My brother and family are moving at the end of the month and so my sister-in-law is having a huge clear out and she passed onto me a 'very' shabby chic wooden box ..

... when I say 'very' I mean it was genuinely tatty ;)

so yesterday I washed it, sanded it down and painted it ...

I am really pleased with how its turned out and will be a perfect place for me to keep my filo-fax's and other note books I use ... not bad for a freebie! thanks Bex!

I am also really excited about another thing ... my mum and I were having a lovely chat on Friday about what fruit and veg I want to grow in my garden, and I said I really wanted to get a greenhouse. The next day, Steve's mum mentioned she wanted to get rid of hers as she doesn't use it any more ... I am so excited to get it and can't wait to start growing ... I have already made a list of the seeds I need to get next year :)

Please pop over to MissieLizzie's blog to see more great bargains and links to other MagpieMonday's. 


  1. Wow how fab. Free stuff is the absolute best! Great going with the greenhouse.


I love reading your comments ... thank you xx
