New Furniture Arrivals at the Garden Centre and the WAC

A few of the new arrivals at The Cottage Garden Nursery includes this wonderful old trolley above. It's timber is all weather worn. I think it would look great as what I call "Garden Art", as part of a feature or on a verandah with a plant in the middle or hanging from the cross bar.

 We also took over this glorious English Oak Extension table.
 Note the lovely details underneath and on its legs.

 Such a warm colour, you just want to stroke it.
 We also took over this beachy looking day bed or couch, perfect for a Queensland lifestyle.

 I forgot to show you this old work bench I fixed up and took over recently. It is behind the long pew in the foreground.
 It has a fab old clamp on one side.
 I painted the base of the work bench white and left the top the nice old rustic timber.
 At the WAC we took over this beachy coffee table above. The drawers are handy for hiding remotes or for keeping games or kids pencils and paper for example.

 This Art Deco sideboard has also had a beachy revamp.
 It really shows up the nice feature on the glass centre door.
Small book shelf. Handy size for a bedroom or hall etc.

 Wassily chair, so groovy.
 Pair of mid century timber arm chairs. They have their original covers which are in very good order for age.
I think I am just going to get this post done in enough time to watch the first State of Origin I can't resist a GO QUEENSLAND !!!! Hope you are all having a good week.


  1. I remember being groovy and owning a pair of Wassily chairs once.

    Looks like you have been really busy. Time for a break and a morning tea. You had better be coming!

  15. Have you ever thought about including a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    But think of if you added some great graphics or video
    clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

  20. Hiya. I noticed your site title, "Blogger: the old boathouse" doesn't really reflect the content of your web page. When creating your website title, do you think it's most beneficial to write
    it for Website positioning or for your visitors?
    This is something I've been struggling with mainly because I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my site visitors.
