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
