The Countdown has Begun….

All I really wanted to do yesterday on what was a beautiful but cold Sunday morning was cosy up and have a long lazy breakfast and family walk with Mr BV, little one and Henry labradoodle. Instead, as many of you were probably recovering from exciting Saturday nights out and bonfire parties, I headed off in search of vintage treasures not too far afield but checking out some new haunts I had heard about.

I had to queue to get into a table top sale, not sure what that was all about but needless to say once I was inside and my feet had thawed through I quickly located some sale worthy vintage items including a small brown leather trunk, unusual glass bottles and a truly vintage ice cream scoop.

I then ventured to a few other generally reliable hotspots to secure a few more pieces that we will list in the Etsy store later this week.

Last month was all about getting finished on a few long standing projects, as such I didn’t get around to posting any new blogs but did manage to share some finished pictures of our outdoor kitchen space and these can be found on this original post Upcycled Interiors in case you missed it.

Here is a sneak peak at the highlights…

We have already enjoyed the new area in what will probably be the first and last this year as it has quickly turned to winter here and will most likely be too chilly until Spring.

Over the next few weeks and months we are on a countdown….not only to the madness of Christmas (it’s our turn to host this year!!)….but to lots of milestones for our little business venture. We hope to share the finished pop up shop space and event details with you along with some informative posts on how you can transform older pieces of furniture into something stylish for a more contemporary look.

Our branding is well under way too so I am super excited to share that with you when it’s all ready.

That’s all for now but check back soon or follow us on Instagram http://www.instagram.com/backroomvintage to see what we are all getting up to.
