Aqualicious Hall Table and Mirror Makeover!

Hello lovely friends

I realised this is my 50th blog post, a milestone for my little blog!  Thank you so much for following along and for all your lovely comments, they warm my heart!  I feel so lucky to have had a few projects featured, including three in the last couple of weeks…  this is crazy exciting for my teeny blog.  You can check out my featured projects here :).

Now onto a Before and After Quickie!

I’m always on a mission to ban fake tan furniture… so when I came across this guy I knew I had to help him!  I fell in love with the shape and details of this piece..  and I knew he was destined for Aqua greatness!


The chair is part of a set of four which I refinished earlier this year.

Here’s the before…  well made, nice shape, bad fake tan finish 😉

I also refinished this lovely mirror in the same aqualicious colour.  I find it tricky to photograph mirrors, I usually end up with a foot or an arm in shot…  not this time but I do have the ‘leaning tower’ of cushies in the background 😉

Thanks for stopping by lovelies,

My Coastal Beachy Piano Bench was Featured!!

Hello lovelies!

Not long to go now until Spring!!  We can almost reach out and touch it and as far as I’m concerned it can’t come quick enough!

It’s been a busy week around this Coastal Home; some painting, some Vintage shopping (more on that soon) and always exciting… a couple of pieces of my furniture flew the coup to new homes!  However I’m not feeling the Empty Nest Syndrome as I picked up a couple of new projects to keep me busy 😉

Speaking of exciting…  last week my little Coastal bench was featured over at Elizabeth & Co.  How cool is that?  I love Sharon’s blog and she features some great projects.  I was so chuffed to be included!

Here it is; before and after.. (you can see the full post here 🙂

Thanks so much Sharon! 

Have a great weekend lovelies 🙂

Oh Yay.. My Vintage Coffee Table was Featured!!

Hi Coastal Lovelies!

We are in the throes of school holidays here in Sydney and with interstate visitors we’ve been busy day tripping and playing!

I was so excited to read a comment this morning from Stacey at Embracing Change to say she had featured my Vintage Coffee Table!!

This is my first feature so I’m over the moon!!  I feel honoured to be chosen amongst so many fab projects…  click on the link to visit and check it out; Embracing Change ~ Inspirations linky party no.21

So I have my very first button, it took me an hour or so to figure out how to add it to my blog… he he I’m learning 🙂  Here it is, so pretty… I particularly love the slogan!  Thanks so much Stacey! xx

We’re off to the movies this afternoon, the kids have decided we need the largest popcorn barrel available!

Happy days 🙂
