Update and new chair

LOL! Whenever I'm having house hunting stress I find the easiest way to relieve it is to buy a chair. Here's my latest chair :) Got it on eBay from the bestest eBayer in Bris Vegas, the lovely Ms Katherine from The Old Boathouse. It is apparently an old ferry driver's chair. (I said ferry not fairy.) Brisbane is a river city. These days sleek catamarans slide up and down the river but once little wooden boats chugged up and down and across the muddy brown waters. And the drivers or should I say captains perched on little wooden seats in their little wooden ferries. Strip, sand, danish oil and I have a fab industrial look chair for my house. Oh and speaking of houses I have two to inspect this Saturday and I'm pretty sure we'll be signing a contract on one. (Jinxed myself now!) Both from the middle of the 19th century, both brick, one a lot more expensive than the other. We'll see. We'll see. Wish me luck!

... before and now after ...
