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

cafe heart & soul

I have been hanging on to these photos for a while and am happy to be able to share them with you today.
I was approached by Rachael and Shelley, a few months back,
after some furniture for a cafe that they were opening.
Not only were they wanting lots of lovely eclectic pieces,
they are also Christian and into wholefoods and healthy eating. 
So good for this Christian, gluten free, sugar free girl!

 I  did these shutters for the front of the shop.
(pictured here over my white ones)

Here they are out the front of the shop.

 I redeemed this old dressing table.

 I heavily distressed the outside,

 While keeping the inside fresh.

 Doesn't it look fabulous now!

 Here it is set up in the shop, looking beautiful.
This lovely wicker setting was in fabulous condition, 
it just needed some new paint and slip covers.

Here it is now.
I can not claim the cushion covers though as I was not feeling confident enough in my sewing abilities to pull them off, fortunately Rachael's MIL was able to make them.

I repainted the set as well as reupholstered the bases.

Here they are set up in the shop.

I was happy to be able to help them find these chairs.
 We were refurbishing our Church hall at the time and I happened to be in charge of selling off the old chairs.
Don't they look great with the timber table!

Here is the lovely Rachael behind the counter.
The girls have done a fabulous job decorating the space and I popped in yesterday on opening day and I must say the food was delicious!
I know I will be a regular!
