A few things…. The Row House Nest is far from being decorated to our my tastes. It needs a lot of nesting materials. With limited means, we have slowly been picking things up.
Got these cutey teacups in Toronto at a Value Village over the holidays – paid around $4 for all 6.
And finally, the first REAL DIY project that we are getting our hands into:
A telephone BENCH! Not quite the bench we were looking for but it was too funky to pass up. Just look at the potential? Having a hard time seeing it???? So was my Irish. It will be great. And all our guests at The Row House Nest will be thanking me when they have a cozy spot to put on their wellies!
Imagine the tan coloured pleather is gone. To pleather heaven. We are thinking we might paint the wood a funky dark teal colour – to match our gate that we are going to be re-painting on the next dry weekend (at this time of the year there are FEW in Ireland, boo!)
We also got this one in the mail today and it might be funky as there is some very strange red carpet up the stairs in the Nest (Ugg).
So next mission to do with our new telephone bench – find either somewhere to buy William Morris & Co fabric at reduced prices (unlikely) or shop around for similar looking fabric at a lower price (likely!).
