We’re finally moving into an actual (little yet lovely) house with a yard and everything! No small feat to find in the crowded metropolis of Berlin! This one literally fell into our laps and is located – get this – behind our current apartment building in the “Remise”…
and just what the heck is a Remise? (pronounced ree-mee-zay)
A fabulous old converted farm building!
Since discovering our soon-to-be-new-home I’ve been stalking the kleinanzeigen (online classifieds) for thrifty yet awesome home furnishings and am delighted to share the quirktastic vintage treasures that I scored for my new kitchen:
erm, yeah…I forgot to mention that our new home, although full of potential, requires quite a bit of work to transform it into the spectacular space I envision it to be – this DIY diva is definitely up for the challenge!
How fabulous is that turn of the century kitchen buffet? Some elbow grease & creativity will have it back to its former glory in no time!
I was floored by the awesomeness of this old hideaway wash basin table (it shall soon be transformed into my new kitchen island) + the lovely seller gave us that 1922 typewriter as a “little bonus” – Wheeee!
all this beauty needs is a good old-fashioned scrubbing!
and last but certainly not least my 41st birthday gift to myself:
a gorgeously restored sideboard to complete my vintage kitchen
it even has most of the original manufacturer’s label from 1938 which thrills me to no end!
and just how much did all of these vintage treasures cost?
a mere €230! She shoots she scores!
