Painting

Busy, busy, busy…!

My sister-in-law Jo is coming to visit us with her family this week and I really really want to finish painting the outside furniture so we can eat outside!

I found these babies in an antiques’ shop. Don’t they just scream SHABBY CHIC?

So not in good condition at all, but what’s the sanding machine and the paint brush for, ey?

Ok, so lots of sanding and lots of paint…

And while I’m at it… I found this table at a local junk auction…

It looked very sad sitting outside in the rain, legless, paintless, loveless. So I picked it up, for … wait for it… £6!!! Bargain!!! I mean, it’s wood and it sits at least 8 people! Ok, so it might not look fab at the moment, but just you wait till I’m finished with it! (at least I hope it will look fab once I’m finished with it…)

We’ve also got a king sized bed that we bought ages and ages ago and surely we must have been blind not to see how ghastly its colour is. I mean just look at this orange!!

But never fear! Apple-mint-white is aching to hug the wood all around before getting access to our bedroom!

    You’re a right little DIYer aren’t you!!! I don’t know how you find some of the stuff you do, but you you’ve certainly got the knack for hunting down great bargains. Also where do you get the patience to renovate it all from? You have my complete admiration🙂 !

    Congratulations on the move Veronika! it looks like you’ve moved to a huge house with lots of garden! So sorry to hear that Annabelle was in hospital, that must have been an awful time for you all, and moving house is stressful enough on its own. It sounds like you’re settling in, already getting your garden furniture sorted, and having guests to stay! Those chairs are lovely, and the colour you plan to paint them sounds really nice, looking forward to seeing them finished. Take care Veronika, and I’m so glad you’re all well now. Love Vanessa xxx
