I read this quote in an old Notebook magazine and loved it.

"The point of rescuing old furniture is not always about rarity or value; it's also about thrift and resisting our disposable culture."

Herein lie two of restoration projects waiting to be finished with images of them sitting in sun drenched spots in our 'Yeronga'.

an old cane rocking chair that is awaiting some white paint love

.........and this 3 piece setting. Lifeline had $30 on it. It is very solid structurally so I have taken off the damaged rattan side panels and have started sanding it back to a smoother finish. The lounge will probably go in the kids play room and the two chairs on the verandah with new covers.

So this is my favourite way of being more green! Can't wait to show you some after pictures.
