Attic room....

Today has seen me going through boxes in search of something to finish the dressing room....but while I have been on the "hunt" I have found all manner of things that will be suitable for the attic/junk/sewing room....needless to say, this photo show the items that will make up the 'junk' in the attic room.
The room requires lighting, flooring, painting and some simple wall panelling, but at least I have some of the content under control.
It's amazing what we have hidden away in boxes and forgotten about....but I guess we are all the same?

Have to lend me to the other comments, and I don't see much junk here. Anyway it will complement the rest of the house beautifully. You have style and class even in your junk Linda. Fabulous:)

Hello Solen,
Unfortunately, no I don't live in Paris, I live in Australia. I have had several holidays to France and I adore your country.
If you would like to send some photos, that would be wondeful, I would love to see them!
We had 8 wonderful weeks in Paris last year and desperately hope to return next year!!!
Thank you for your visit to my blog, I am pleased you enjoy it.
Regards, Linda

Solen said...

Your welcome, it is a pleasure for me.
Tomorrow it is still a holiday here, I ask my friends to come walk with me in Paris, I probably bring back some pictures!

Jo said...

Hi Linda - I visit your blog often, but this is a first time comment from me ;-) I love your attic room junk, especially that little sail boat! I was wondering if you could remember the name of the miniature shop in Bath you mentioned? I am in England and have a contact in Bath...I think those tiny pegs are just amazing! I lived in Paris for 5 months and your blog makes me homesick for it...it truly is a wonderful city!
Regards, Jo

Norma said...

Just looking at your 'junk room' treasures again, have you used a dry brush technique on the 'shabbied' furniture pieces?

Jo said...

Hi Linda, just heard from Mercedes that you're in hospital, hope you have a speedy recovery and take care. We miss you but want you to look after yourself first and foremost!
Hehe...my word verification is 'pariv' they got one letter wrong - 'paris' would have been so much more fitting!

Computer parts said...

These items in your attic are pretty much usable and recyclable.

These are junk? Are you for real? Well if that so, can I have it all?
