Help with your creative brilliance

Hi lovelies

Please note I am saying this in hushed tones...

I did a very random and rash thing on the weekend - I bid on a 1930s Queen Anne bedroom suite on Ebay! 5 items: my top bid was $200.

Turns out, I won. For a total of approx $32 a piece - AU$160 I have the lot.

I was all inspired - it's all your fault you know, all you talented wonderful women who inspire me constantly with your ability to revive a tired old piece into something truly special and wonderful! The plan was to do these beautiful revamps and sell them at a small profit and feel happy in the process....that was the vision. Only problem was I by-passed reality being the how, what, when, where....

So now poor Mr Tig is hyperventilating about how we transport this stuff - it isn't going to fit in our trailer - he didn't realise it was ALL of the pieces.....where are we going to store it?!!

Lucky he loves me!

So for now I sit in guilt about the purchase and the time to collect and all those issues of transport and storage,...and just a wee touch of sheer excitement at whether I can turn these pieces into something unique!!

Wish me luck

Cath! DON'T BE GUILTY AT ALL!!! You should rejoice in the fact that you got all 5 pieces for so little $! I am so stinkin' jealous right now. I love simple, sweet curves like your pieces have without a lot of detail (like carvings, etc.) and these are PERFECT. I say paint em' white and distress those edges for sure but I'm partial and you're the real artistic among us. Oooh. I can't wait to see what you do with them my sweet friend. If I wasn't on another continent, you could surely store them here. ;)

Anyhow, I was just thinking of you and wanted to say hello and now I'm green with envy. Hehe
