Custom order for ~ Pam 💗 I was asked to modernise this Crystal Cabinet, which I was honoured to do for my customer and her family, as it was a much loved sentimental piece that had been in her family for yearsUnfortunately due to it’s age, it had some previous damage to the glass and veneer, but thanks to my wonderful local Glazier ‘Hewitts Glas’ I was able to get the broken panel replaced for them, once returned to me I got to work removing the loose Veneer, repaired the timber top which had lifted, then painted the whole piece in the lessentielaustralia UFMP colour ‘Senlis’ a beautiful Charcoal colour, adding Champagne Gilding wax to it’s original keyhole and hinges to tie in with the original handle. This was definitely one of my most difficult jobs, but I knew just how much the piece meant to this family and I’m grateful I was able to restore this much loved beauty back to being functional and updated in a more suitable finish. Thankyou for trusting me with this Restyle Pam, I hope you and your family can now enjoy this beautiful Cabinet for many more years 💗 Carrie ☺️ customorder sentimental crystalcabinet restyle repaired painted lessentiel ultimatefinish senlis gildingwax originalhardware renewed reloved oldisnewagain chicnshabby bespokefurnituredesign shop yarrajunction

When you’ve worked hard for over two weeks and can’t wait to start decorating! My temporary roof went on yesterday, so today I spent time building a new bench top to match my rustic timber table legs and skirt I had been saving, a quick paint in lessentielaustralia UF Senlis and buffed with Soapstone wax for extra durability, still more painting and gapping the windows and weatherboards to be done, but my excitement took over and I finally started adding my collection of old rustic pieces & newish treasures I’ve been saving for my greenhouse, it’s been so much fun playing in there, adding my little bits, I’m sure things will change around until I’m happy and of course start growing some plants, but I absolutely love it so far and feeling extremely proud of myself for finally turning my dream into a really 😍🌱🌷 progress temporaryroofison couldwaittodecorate mystyle vintagefinds rusic frenchcountry gardenlover feelingproud ifinallydidit diy greengouse myheart myhome chicnshabby yarrajunction

Greenhouse DIY progress, finally got to install my arched feature window at the back yesterday and started painting the inside, still lots of gap filling and painting to go and of course adding a roof, but I couldn’t wait to see if my DIY potting bench fitted 😉 and I’m happy to say it’s just perfect 😃 tomorrow I will try to get a makeshift roof up with laser light until I can work out building the trusses for a pitched roof then, add another bench with shelving. So far so good 😃🌱🌸 . diy greengouse progress featurewindow painting addingafewthings sofarsogood happydays chicnshabby yarrajunction

Slowly making more progress on my DIY greenhouse, thanks to my lovely friend crystalanna79 lending me her handy hubby to help me install the huge framed front window yesterday, today I have finally finished the weatherboards and got one of the two French doors back on, while the other had it’s frame replaced so I will need to chisel out the hinge grooves to fit and get everything level at the front! So much work still to go, before I can add my feature window to the back, which has also needed some minor repairs and will go in once the front is stable. I’m quite impressed with myself, although it’s been a learning experience along the way it’s now starting to actually look like a greenhouse 😃🔨⚙️🌱 greenhouse diy progress gettingthereslowly workingprogress chicnshabby yarrajunction

Sorry I haven’t been posting much over the past week, as I’ve been busy with my latest DIY project, building my own greenhouse and I’m so excited 😃 over the last few months I have been collecting second hand windows and the framed door/window front you see in the first picture which will be the entrance. Today I finally had my late hubby’s compressor fixed and bought a nail gun eeek, I’m determined to teach myself how to frame and add the windows and front door myself, which is not easy! I will be sharing more progress pictures once this is done, thankfully with the school holidays and my Shop being home based I have been able to get all this done in a week, fingers crossed the rest will be alot easier now I have the right tools 😉 💪🏻🔨⚙️🌿 diy greenhouse progress buildiing chicnshabby myhome yarrajunction

As a small business owner I work very hard to provide my customers with an honest, ethical approach in all aspects of selling products, I’ve built a strong foundation on these ethics and it upsets me when I see other ‘business’ owners taking advantage of this on Social Media. We are all doing our best to provide a service, sell products and make a living, this is a little reminder that to be successful we need to support each other and not be competitive 💗 Carrie x. smallbusiness ethics success supporteachother donotcompete donttakeadvantage hardworkingwoman wearealldoingourbest strongwomensupporteachother chicnshabby shop yarravalley
