'A' is for...Auction!

Excuse me as I write this as I am very excited and still feeding off the buzz I got at my first ever auction last night!! It was run by Coleraine auction rooms and the room was crammed with people, furniture, antiques, mirrors and bits and bobs. I thought it might be a little scrappy - well I didn't really know what to expect, but it was great! After fishing around to see what I fancied I got bidding! All bids started from £2 so needless to say I got these items at a fantastic price, I really can't believe it! I got these three items for the less than the price that I would pay for one if I was buying these at a second hand store!
 This Dressing table is my favourite, I knew instantly that I wanted to paint it a really light pink. LOOK at these gorgeous handles and little stacked legs!
This second dressing table is quite similar and was my first bid of the night! I don't have a clue what to do with it yet.
Lastly is this table, I have been wanting one like this for ages! Don't forget to let me know if you want any of these customised - I can paint in any colour from bright yellow to dark plum, whatever floats your boat :)
