Op Shopping on your own, discovering rare gems is one thing, enlisting your mother to scout on your behalf is another. Without any prompting, my mum found herself at a garage sale in Mentone where everything was for sale. To her delight, the whole house was decked out in shabby chic furniture, with nothing over $30. A few frantic calls to me, and she'd managed to fill her boot full of fantastic buys for my home. So this week I thought I'd share one my favourite pieces of furniture that has found a new home at my place.
