A Weekend Project
Thu 24th, Jan, 2013
I am still on school holiday time here, not long and I get rid of those BC rugrats for another 10 weeks and get back to regular broadcasting from this old cottage…we have been hanging…I love love love that about the school hols – going down the beach, drinking coffee, mooching around at home and taking naps (well I have been the main nap partaker), yep I am relishing it while it lasts.
In other news, these two above are what I am working on at the weekend – I am hoping to transform this old table and chair for the Summer House…to be honest the Summer House makeover really stalled with the foofing part of the scenario…I lost my mojo with it…funny really because I was all up for it and then…blah…I believe it’s the tricky size in there that has stopped me from doing anything…I have been looking for bits and bobs that will better fit the odd shape but not found anything so am going to take the bull by the horns and use what I have already got..
With this new year and when the kiddos go back to school I am ready to get it looking a little bit more pleasing to the eye…
The table I have had for ages, I picked it up for nothing, the chair a more recent find…I was loathe to paint either, I love the wood of the chair and I love the shabbiness and faded patina to the table but I do believe they would be singing prettily in a coat of BC white…we shall see…I am thinking the chair will be only part white with nice woody bits and bobs left here and there….there is definitely too a notion of an oilcloth polka dot covering to the top of the table…
I’ll be back with the after soon…
p.s. thanks so much for all the very interesting comments on the post yesterday, we have researched heavily most of what you all said already but also re-considered many of your points, it’s so good to get input isn’t it, thank you…I had a LOT of emails about this too, I am trying to get back to you all as soon as I can x
