Recently on a local facebook buy, swap and sell page these items were advertised. The owners were moving into a new modern house and the furniture wasn't going to suit. Lucky for me I was on facebook at the time of advertising and picked these lovely old pieces up for a good price.
Brown marble top washstand for $20
The marble is broken but hopefully it can be repaired with some granite glue. We purchased this to restore for our daughter. She owns a quaint little cottage in the Flinder's Ranges, and this will be perfect for it.
A settlers chair for $40, this is also for our daughter. Not much restoring to do with this beauty.
And my most favourite of all.
A leadlight cupboard for $150
I can't wait to get this one back to its former glory. I think it may have been originally painted with the green and cream of that era, but I am debating whether to do that or take all the paint off to reveal the beautiful wood. Probably will do the latter...
The leadlight glass is in perfect order, not loose at all.
This cupboard is a keeper for me J
This cute dresser was $20, I think it will be such a nice piece with all that paint removed.
I don't know where I am going to put this furniture as my house is already full of old pieces, but I will figure that problem out later J
And the person that was selling asked if we would like this old fan. It needs a bit of work, but having an apprentice electrician in the family this shouldn't be a problem. There are a few bare wires showing.
Are you a sucker for old wares or do you prefer the modern alternative?
