Beats the Poundshop

Mooching around the charity shop a few weeks ago I came across this.  My husband was not impressed, the knobs are too big, its just another piece of tat !

Aww, it was only a £1 and I like it, maybe it was the cut out hearts or the detail in the middle.  I’ll give it a lick of paint ….

It’s now sitting happily on the wall in the bathroom and hubby may or may not have eaten his words.

Linking up with Liz at MagpieMonday

    Tell your husband to button his beak. That is bloody beautiful and such a steal at £1. You go girl 🙂

    That's lovely, even better painted white for that special White Approach. We had a really similar one at home growing up, my mum used to hang her pinnies from it.

    I don't have book shelves, I so need them, I own so many books. I've been waiting for such a London time to have them. One day I will have beautiful book shelves

I'd love your comment
