all good things...

come to those who spend too many hours on eBay searching for that 'perfect' piece of furniture. This is our big Christmas present this year. Isn't it lovely?

The photo is from the eBay man - that's not our house. The gorgeous piece is in our bedroom and looks (or will look) wonderful. As it only arrived last night (thank you darling husband for going out of your way to collect it) I can't show it off in situ as our bedroom looks like something has exploded - not so Danish, a bit more dumpster...




I have these chairs (I wanted to show them off again after seeing these gorgeous finds today) and I am now on the hunt for a new dinning table. And one day, the perfect sideboard for our dinning room/kitchen will be there on eBay, waiting for only me. Or perhaps beside the road on hard rubbish night? Or left at my door in a moses basket with a little note...
My work here is not done. eBay for me is like porn is for many men. I need it everyday. And sometimes I hide it from my husband.

Ebay is definately very addictive! I go through phases of banning myself...but there is so much good stuff to be bought. Looks like you've had some good finds!

LOL, my husband banned me from ebay many years ago. I used to hide it from him too.

It's just gorgeous!

You NEED to check out 'Mitchell Rd Auctions', they were 'Gavin Hardy's' in Erskinville, they have a 20th century design Auction every month. Great for Danish furniture, lamps, pottery etc. you have to fend off the odd dealer, but far cheaper than e-bay.

Oh, I'm assuming you are in Sydney?!

Oh! Now STOP!
We just made the final payment on a side-board too! I want yours as well though & your chairs? Sooooo wanty!
WANT WANT WANT!
'Tis the season after all right? ;) XXxx

Beautiful sideboard - congratulations on your winning bid!

I have phases of ebay addiction - almost always hidden from my husband.

Jo said...

Fantastic sideboard. My parents have one similar. I always admire it when I go to their place. What would we do without e-bay?

I am with you and Michelle. I hide my eBay addiction.. Danish furniture is a favourite too. I bought a Parker table and 6 dining chairs for $90 once! The table needs lots of loving, and I want to re-upholster the chairs, but bargains - be still my beating heart!BTW - my word verification is daness.. Kind of like Danish.

That is a gorgeous set of drawers. I want something similar for our bedroom, but haven't found that 'perfect' piece yet.
