Fantastic Carboot Sale Finds...

I had a fantastic day today. My mum took me and the kids to a giant carboot sale out in the countryside early afternoon, and i got some real bargains, of course lol. It was absolutely packed and took what's usual a 20 minutes drive, 1 hour because of all the traffic. The weather was perfect as well.
We ended the trip with ice cream and chocolate cake and a beautiful little winebar and then came home for dinner. Whilst Mum cooked, and Ash got the children ready for bed, i started painting one of my new finds and gave my new table another coat with some new satinwood creamy paint.
Also, the yellow gingham fabric in the background of the images is a tablecloth i got today for £3 hehe.

Here are the pictures of my new buys.

The jug was £1.50 and the gravy bowl was £1 for two. I gave the other one to Mum.

This was £1

Again, £1, though i'm not sure i like it lol.

£2, and i've started painting the base this evening.

Can you believe, £1.50 for both! The edge is a very pretty groove and i'm going to paint them duck egg and replace the knobs with crystal styled ones

£2 for the entire set. They are for my cabinet.

Altogether these three items came to about £2

And finally, £2.50 for the set. Though one of them doesn't match, but i love it.
