Waiting game

Another day of crafting but wait can’t paint until my brushes turn up. Plan B cover my chair covers but wait stupid staple gun broke yesterday. So Plan C need to buy a new one to continue while waiting for brushes.4-Wax-amp-Chalk-Paint-Brushes-Round-Paintbrushes-20-25-30-40mm-shabby-chic-brushes


But wait I have two cushions to cover that don’t need staples or painting hooray I can craft today.

Can’t wait to see end result of the rocking chair and I’m sure my grandson will love being rocked in it.




Finished Pouffe

Hooray I’ve finished my pouffe/ottoman/footstool and I have now put up for sale I think it came out how I wanted it to only time will tell if anyone else likes it like I do.

I delivered my shabby chic rocking chair yesterday and it felt like I was losing part of me must get over this feeling as I am making these to sell not for me.


Let me know if you think this looks good I wont be hurt if it’s not your thing. Now to start my chairs and my nest of tables

Geometric tables

Whoops I’ve done it again, that is I can’t walk past my local charity shop that sells solely furniture. It’s like an Aladins cave to a crafter upcycler like me.

I just popped in yesterday not looking for anything in particular and there tucked away between two chairs were a set of three side tables. Yes they had seen better days but my design brain kicked in and I started to see so many possibilities.

Then my sensible brain said but you all ready have a half-finished project and 4 chairs in the garage. So did I listen to design me or sensible me. Uhm design me they were only £5 for all three and I have a big garage.
