When we move a dresser I’d bought as a stop gap from the Brocante broke. I suppose I could fix it, but the kitchen here is so tiny and it didn’t go in the dining room, so I was struggling to find a suitable place for it. I was thinking of what to do in the hallway, particularly with this Formica top on the radiator, When i had the thought to use the top of the dresser with its carved detail there. As it had had some shelves this was a match made in heaven. No extra work was required, just taking of one am door replacing it with another.
Then I began to dress the room; this old mirror which I’d bought at a Brocante whilst we where in put last house, the replica candlestick phone seemed to go beautifully, some pictures of my great grandmothers in Victorian style frames and this replica Art Deco tealights holder.
On the other side of the room is this beautiful oak cupboard and I’ve finished it with these Mucha prints.
It’s not perfect and needs decorating, but it’s starting to look like our home.
