I got these old scales while in Bendigo Victoria last year.They were all rusty and they were a dark blue colour i thought they needed a face lift something bright for the kitchen.


Snggle up warm and cosy by the FAKE fire yes that's right FAKE.I bought the electric log fire from ALDI for $80.00 last winter and with the help of my husband this is our creation.I got the top shelf from my dear friend Cindy and the bottom half was an old book case the floor is a piece of board with 6 stick on tiles everyone thinks it is real.

Remember that old cupboard?
