The Re-Love Project Charity Auctions are Live!

I’m super excited to announce that my Tribal Sideboard is now up for grabs!

Tribal Buffet

From now until September 4 anyone can bid for a chance to take this lovingly refurbished one-of-a-kind baby home!

Remember, this is an up-cycled piece, so isn’t perfect, though it is jam packed with personality and practicality.

All proceeds from the sale go directly to charity and bidding begins at just $1 with free national shipping! Yes, people, FREE!

DIY Tribal Style Sideboard Interior

If ever there was a time to snaffle-up that special piece, this is it! You can absolutely guarantee that no-one else will have anything quite like this in their home!

Please hop on over and place a bid. Not only will you be supporting a great cause (and giving yourself the chance to win!), you just might save me from looking like a potential bid-less loser!

In addition to my up-cycled sideboard, there are seven other fabtabulous pieces being offered by the other amazing designers involved so be sure to check them all out.

For further information about this wonderful campaign, visit the Feast Watson website.

C’mon peeps! Let’s make this thing awesome!



PS Thank you all so much for the beautiful response I have so far received for my piece. I stepped outside my comfort zone with this project and was feeling a little nervous about the whole thing. Your gracious support has been incredibly uplifting and is deeply appreciated.

PPS Oh, and please share this around with your family, friends, colleagues – whoever! If it’s not the item for you, perhaps you know someone who would love to have this piece grace their home :)

    How exciting! To be blunt, the only other one that is unique in any way is Ms. Barter’s cafe table and chairs – very cool. I am quite sure you are going to far exceed all other bids (again). ;) I am bummed that I can’t afford to try for it!

    • I wish you could bid too Deb!
      It will be lovely to bring in a good amount for the charity, however I doubt the final sale price for my piece will exceed that of some of the others. There are serious designers, with major cred, involved in this campaign. Their work is highly sought-after and they have fantastic reach.

    Can you please give us any information on the charity ?

    • Absolutely Noreen.
      This campaign (now in its fourth year) is run by Feast Watson and all proceeds from the auction sales go directly to Salvos Stores (Salvation Army –
      There is a link in the post which provides further information. I didn’t elaborate on these details in the post because I have mentioned it numerous times in my previous posts about the project.
      Thanks so much for your interest.

    Hi Christine,

    Discovered your blog way back before Charlotte was born when you disappeared. We know now that you were stuck in hospital for months. Just wanted to say that I love your blog. Not everyone lives in a palatial mansion on Sydney Harbor or the northern beaches. Thanks for inspiring people with little houses and not much money. I see that your parquet wardrobe sold for over $1,100 and your beautiful cabinet is currently at $592. You should be so proud. Your projects are within most people’s budgets and your tutorials are great. Can’t wait to see what you do next!

    • Thank you so much Maureen. I’m always working away on something and love being able to share my projects when I can.
      I really appreciate your kind words and support. I’ve actually found this year the trickiest so far in terms of finding the time and energy to blog around caring for the kids. Next year Charlotte will start school (can’t believe it!) and Riley will be at 3 Year Old kinder a few hours a week so I will finally have some alone time to try and get some bloggy stuff done. Hopefully I’ll be able to post more often :)
