Bring on the lighter nights!

Just a quickie as I have not posted for ages!

Put all my craft work on hold over Christmas, too cold to work outside doing my furniture, and too busy with work to do much else. I had to go into work between Christmas and New Year too so didn't get much of a break. I have a full time job working 9-5 Monday to Friday so only really have the weekend to work on crafts

I have not been idle though and have been busy scouring eBay and the occasional car boot sale for new projects to work on. So far I have lined up a small dresser, pine farmhouse style table with 4 chairs, dressing table with matching mirror,  and also 2 smaller tables to try new paint techniques out on. One of the tables I got for £1 at a car boot sale, and it has written on the underside "$83.50"  !! I love a bargain !

Hoping to get started with some painting on Sunday, I have also stocked up on Annie Sloan paint, and also some crackle glaze to experiment with. Really excited to get back into things again, and will keep a better track of what I am spending and earning from the furniture this year.

Here are a few pics of some of my recent purchases, and come back for another look soon to check out their transformations ;-)

See you soon!

  1. Oh Julie, the pieces are fantastic ..... I especially drool for the table and chairs - much like the set I have in the kitchen just now. Dying to see what you do with them. Can see you're revving back up again with all ths we work. Brilliant!
