Daniel San and I have been searching for a cast iron garden set for little while now.
I very nearly had him convinced that we should buy a similar set at a second hand shop in Brunswick Heads last time we were visiting.
Lucky we didn't. We found this baby on ebay and at $41 it was ours!
It was the first time I'd ever bid on anything and you should have seen what an anxious mess I was with 10 minutes to go, on my phone, on a saturday night, in a cocktail lounge.
This morning we took a little drive down the coast to collect our win.
There's no doubt it needs a little love - all the more fun I say.
I've been on the Dulux website creating my powder-coating colour shortlist.
Rather than sticking with the traditional white, I was thinking either a pale apricot, greeny/mint or turquoisey/jade colour.
We're really looking forward to having our morning cuppa on the balcony - our outdoor space still needs a little attention!
Which colour would you choose?!
