This year, me & Evert visited the "Braderie de Lille" for the first time. We were very curious about this event that dates back to the 12th Century and takes place on the weekend of the first Sunday of September. Luckily I did some research beforehand so we kind of knew which area's to go to. Funny enough, the neighborhood where we first started, turned out to be the best in my opinion! This was the area where most of the antique dealers where based at. But is was very interesting to see a big part of this gigantic market!
Our first find was a cabinet with a lot of little drawers, we loved it right away! This cabinet was originally from a garage where it was used for all kinds of small tools. We also found two enamel tins and a clock! Tired but satisfied we drove home with our found treasures...
The enamel tins & clock are now in our kitchen, the tins I use for rice and tea. Unfortunately the clock is not yet working but we're hoping to find someone who can fix it for us! The cabinet was already beautiful but I decided tot paint it in Richmond Green by Le Noir & Blanc and I'm happy I did! The cabinet is perfect for my little office to store things like masking tape, stamps and other crafty things.
The small boxes on the wall I found at Xenos & the glass planters I bought at Flying Tiger. I'm very happy with my new wall, it really is an addition to my workspace!
