Autumn Boatshed Revamp

As the days are getting shorter and the nights colder, it's time to make the boatshed cosy. So I've been shopping for a few items to combine with vintage stuff I already had. I made some cushions from the offcuts left over from the stool reupholstering:

I bought two beautiful vintage deckchairs for $3 each:



A new pendant light shade from Ikea:


Cushions from Freedom and rug from Ikea:


A little vintage chair for $8 from a local second hand store:


An Ikea bedside table lamp:

Now that the inside is taken care of, it's time to paint some exteriors. This laundry looks so much better in dark charcoal than it ever did in white:



Here it is as a work-in-progress:


I'll keep you updated on the progress of this beach cottage as it undergoes a coat of charcoal paint. Can't wait to see it:

That dark charcoal looks amazing with a white trim, it seems to hide the imperfections of the wall.

Gorgeous! This is so inspiring. Love the vintage deck chairs and can't believe you found those for so little $$. Who does your upholstery?

Your pozzie on the water looks absolutely idyllic. It looks like summer, carefree, low tech, healthy and the sort of place where you grow up pottering in boats, swimming, barbequing, sleeping on the grass.....

p.s I like the charcoal laundry, it looks crisper or something...can't pin point it.
