The Kijiji Stalker Strikes Again!

This past weekend, we did a lot of projects around the house, but none that are very pretty or blog worthy.  The hubby installed our speaker system in the basement, as well as set up our Hot Tub and our theatre room.  I tell ya, while I wouldn't have thought we'd really use a theatre room, we love it! The home builder already built one, so we wanted to put it to good use.  It is so much fun, and the girls adore watching their favorite movies on the huge projector screen.  I'll do a post on this room once we finish furnishing it (which honestly isn't a priority right now....there are too many other empty spots in this house!).  We did manage to take a trip into the city to pick up a few Kijiji finds. These could well be my favorite finds yet. I have always wanted a frenchy settee, and I lucked into this one:

It was beautifully re-upholstered for a child's room. We plan on using it in the playroom for now. How precious is it?! The pink, the bows, the french provincial style.....adore it! I am trying to resist the urge to reupholster it for my sunroom =)

The same person had this old pine table for sale. Perfect for our craft and games table in the playroom. My husband will make a leaf for it, so we can extend it out for those puzzle and game nights! We had a perfectly functional, but very cheap and ugly (an old college days dining set) table already in this space.  For not much money, we now have a gorgeous, solid, antique table (from 1910) with gorgeous patina and character. So much better!

Our playroom/gamesroom is in a large open area on the bottom floor. Although it is a space for the kids, since it's in such a visible area, I want it to be stylish as well. We scored a free wall unit this past summer, that we're now repainting and adding trim and beadboard to it. I plan to do a post soon all about the progress of the playroom so far.  Be warned, however, it's very much a work in progress!  This room is coming together slowly, but surely!

Have a wonderful day!

Two great finds -- that little settee makes me want to get my dolls out of the attic and have a teaparty. The table is wonderful -- such great patina.

That settee is just precious, I would have a hard time giving it up to a play room too. Its a special find, I love how they have the ribbons on the front.
