some new revamp~restoration projects...

the sweetest little person chair. £4 from our local hospital charity shop.
the plan...rub down...then either wax or paint {i am currently favouring albany wimbledon}...new cushion and upholstery. to match in with the sitting room...which still needs finishing. shameful.

cabinet for the hallway. £10 reduced to £5 from my favourite auction overspill in st ives.
plan...rub down...paint {perhaps?} in grey. perfect for the phone and key bowl and a flower to greet you. oh for an anenome in an urchin. it is {definitely} to sit in front of another project...an out of use hallway door to be painted top to toe as a blackboard. but there is work to be done before we can all doodle messages and i can indulge in a decals.

this much i know. i am good at envisaging possibilities. less good at getting them going these days.

i am thinking that spring will be an inspiration as far as colour schemes and motivation goes. and as that's about 3 weeks away then it suits me perfectly. i'll probably decide on what to do 19th march.

i am unbelievably slow these days in starting let alone completing jobs. and that's the nice jobs as well as the mundane! but i have to say that today the sun came out. i sat in it's warmth...one i'd almost forgotten...and whilst my baby girl napped in the fresh air i drank a cup of tea sat on our bench...noticed the buds on the lilac bush and thought ok. i'm ready. bring on the manifesto!

  1. I cannot wait to see what you do. Wasn't it beautiful yesterday?

    If you finish your projects, i have a garage full of things that will be quite lovely when they have been reupholstered or Farrow and Balled....

    You are most welcome to them.



thank you from the heart for leaving me a message...your hellos and encouragement mean a lot to me! i will do my very best to reply individually to each comment via the same post so do check back. x
