Shed Love, Op Shop Style

Before

mess mess mess

amongst all of this mess is 50 metres of hessian and a pallet of denim.... yes a pallet!

$200.00 and 3 trips with my handy Kia Carnival and I have 2.7 metres of my shed wall covered and hessian, denim and misc fabric all behind closed doors. I totally love the mirror back, its so 80's lol

Instead of having to turn sideways to get to each work bench I now have a whopping 2.5 metre clear floor area from one side to the other. I could do a little dance in there now if I felt like it. I mean, I would look utterly stupid and I would probably never do a little dance of any kind, but I could if I felt like it. I love op shop (thrift shop) furniture. Its cheap and brilliant value for money if you are decking out a shed. Looking more like a studio than a shed every day.
My fingers are cut to pieces and my backs out and I fell asleep while I was talking to dear M last night, so after 3 solid days of hard yakka ( theres a tonne of machinery I moved, not in this picture and a 10 foot long workbench that I dragged out on my own....who needs men eh), I'm off to bed. I am taking tomorrow off. I don't think I will be able to move anyhow.
Have a fab week!

hello, everything at our place comes from the op shop. antique coffee table with a slight scratch? yes please, it'll end up worse than that at our place!

I was wondering if you knew about Melbourne's collaborative op shopping blog 'I op therefore I am'

http://melb-opshopping.blogspot.com/

there are links there to maps and addresses of Melbourne's op shops. let me know if you are interested in joining.

regards, Amelia
