It has been a perfect autumnal day today. We met our good friends and their gorgeous baby Ivy for a wander around Frome’s amazing monthly market where we ate brownies, drank cider and bought lots of good cheese!
Being at the market and seeing all the lovely second-hand, up-cycled and reupholstered furniture for sale made me want to share our recent purchases from the September Frome market now we have found places for them in our home.
First up, we found this lovely wooden chest in a beautiful grey-green shade.
We decided to use it as a coffee table and it is a lovely focal point in the living room with an added bonus of storage inside!
Next, my vintage wooden ladder bought (after some haggling!) from a very friendly Frenchman.
I love the texture of the wood in this piece but wanted it to be useful as well…
Cue my new scarf holder! As you can see, I have a hoard of scarves which were kept in a cupboard and I have to admit to not really knowing what colours I actually had.
Now, they are easy to see and reach for and add a pop of colour to the room.
The ladder is currently in my bedroom but I am thinking of moving it into the hallway as I would usually grab a scarf just as I am leaving the house.
