Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!

classic soda stools


 This set of four stools features Grafton's iconic soft drink company Zietsch Bros vintage labels.
The stools have been repainted in ironstone and have new rubber stoppers on the bottom of each leg.
We replaced the worn out tops with new timber ones and then decoupaged enlarged copies of some soft drink labels onto the seats.
These one of a kind stools would make a great talking point in any home.
These would be a great gift for the guy who has everything, or make a feature in the home bar or kitchen.

All the classics are featured including:
"ginger ale"

"soda water"

"creaming soda"
my favourite as a kid

and of course 
"lemonade"

This set could be yours for $120 which is cheap at just $30 each for these one of a kind stools.
I will consider selling these is pairs. SOLD

in the navy


 
I have called this lovely made over desk "in the navy"

 
It has certainly gone from drab to fab.

 I love how the white drawers with navy handles stand out.

I like the drawers to be fresh,
 so I  painted them white and lined them with red and white stripped paper 
(the navy and white was sold out!).

It looks fresh and fabulous and is waiting for a new home, it could be yours for just $75.

french chocolate trio in shades of grey

Quite a change from the way they originally looked, don't you think!

This lovely trio could be in your home for only $30. SOLD

 This beautiful little piece can be used for plants or for display.
 It folds up for easy transporting.

lily lamp

 This gorgeous lamp who I have nicknamed Lily,

came to me looking like this.

A brand new cord was attached, so she would be safe for her new owner, some white paint, a bit of distressing and 

a pretty lamp shade made with redeemed netting
and she is ready for a new home.

 
You can have her in your home for $60. SOLD

frenchy blue

 This cute little folding side table was painted with a french blue I hand mixed and then distressed.

 
A pretty french graphic was added to the top.

 She has gone to a new home,
 the two I have had have both sold very quickly, 
so I hope I can find some more of these little babies!


spotty dotty

 This cute chair I called Spotty Dotty.

She started life looking something like this 
although not the same because if you look closely you will notice it is not the same chair.
I can't find a before photo so maybe I forgot to take one, ooops!

 
I love how she turned out with the red and white spots.
She has gone to her new home, but I have had a request for more in different colours, 
so I will be after some more of these chairs.

black magic

 I called this little number Black Magic.

 
I actually wasn't going to buy this piece because it had a broken leg, but the guy selling it gave it to me for a price I couldn't refuse along with a desk I was buying.
Thankfully hubby was able to fix the broken bit and I transformed her

 
 with some black paint and crystal knobs.

 I placed some pretty black and white paper in the drawers after I painted them white.

For the photo I placed a doily table runner and some of my cute little graphic prints on top.

This gorgeous piece has now gone to a new home.

union jack love


 When I picked up this little side table looking worse for wear I knew I could redeem it into something special.
Union Jacks on furniture have been very popular for some time now and I have wanted to do one on something for ages, this little table gave me the perfect excuse.
I love the distressed factor and how the crack in the veneer shows through.
You need to learn to love these pieces with all their faults and flaws from their previous life- a bit like people really!

 Here she is ready to hold a drink and some nibbles in time for the festive season.
Although you can't see it in the photo her legs are slightly distressed too.

This gorgeous glittered glass is part of my Christmas range and will only be available for a short time.

Union Jack Table: $20 SOLD
Glittered Glasses: $8 a pair

where to find redeemed


 We will be at the Jacaranda Pre School fundraiser on Thursday Night 29th November.
This will just be a table stall so no large items will be there.
The cost is $20 a ticket which includes champagne and nibbles, plus lots of fun and prizes.

We will also be at the Legacy Christmas Markets on Saturday 1st December.
These will be at Legacy  House (where Vines is) in Fitzroy St.
I will have my tent outside in the car park at the back.

My final stall of the year will be at the School of Arts Markets over South Grafton, on Saturday 8th December.
If you haven't yet been to check out "redeemed" please come along to one of these events, 
we would love to see you there!

biggest project yet

This solid former TV cabinet is going to be a fun project as we turn it into a kid's play kitchen.
It is very heavy and solid and when finished will be listed on Gumtree if it is not snapped up by someone before hand.
It will only be available until Christmas Eve, so if you know of anyone who may be interested in this as a Christmas present please get them to contact me.
This will also enable them to pick colours before I start painting it.
Will include a sink, fridge, stove and oven, and lights plus much more.
This piece when finished will be able to be played with for years to come and would be able to passed down to the next generation.
It is 1.7m long and about 1.4m high.
