Did the design on Polyvore added the script on Picasa3 printed them out on the home printer and laminated them...works a treat for drinks mats too...oooh next printing project?
But going to do a more long lasting version with thin MDF and a couple of coats of clear varnish..been using a clear matt quick drying varnish from Wilkinson's..fabulous stuff then giving a final polish with very fine wet and dry......for that ooooh aaaaah silky feeling
Think they go well with my charity shop finds last week...definitely must use the table more..looks pretty all laid out for it's photo shoot hehe
Think they work ok.....but l'm ashamed to say we don't use the table as much as we should hoping Bakewell will be different after all this painting and sanding effort!!
Yes it is the middle of the night and l can't sleep l'm just so excited about the move and we are
off to Bakewell at 10.30 this morning to take some measurements and have a last look around before we take possession in...wow!! 14days time
Am l setting myself up for DEEP DEPRESSION if anything goes wrong and we can't complete on the 12th or am l just being a POSITIVE THINKER here? hehehe
l will be 58 (how the hell did that happen?) in June and l feel like a 3 year old in a sweetie shop l'm so excited No hope for me ever growing up now!
sanding painting varnishing and polishing with wet and dry x 3!
I did a marbling/paint finishes course a long time ago.......wet and dry is the secret
brings your paint and varnish finishes into the fabulous silky feel category
Driven OH mad with oooooh's and aaaaaah's and come feel this it's sooooooooo silky every 5 minutes hehe
The table and butchers trolly feel gorgeous to touch and look just how l want them to look ready for Bakewell Need some baskets to go on the butchers trolly shelves to complete the look
OH did the rough sanding removing all the old scratched varnish then l did the finish.....painting and clear matt varnishing and the wet and dry inbetween
A slightly paler look top and a slightly distress white bottom ready for the move which looks like it's on for Monday12th April...only 2weeks and 5days off
RED GREEN AND WHITE OR SOMETHING DIFFERENT?
Liking this red green and white look but may do a aqua/blue and white look or a pastel frenzy of beautiful colours? A different look each day this week......really not sure and depends on what we can afford to do straight away
I really want an all white kitchen with splashes of colour here and there....but can we afford to re-do the kitchen units?
Paint would be the cheapest....replacement cabinet doors the next......with around 30 kitchen cupboards might have to wait a while...complete new kitchen definitely out of the question
Still need to sand and paint all the chairs but rain put a stop to the out door sanding
New seating will wait untill we can move in and l can finally decide on the fabric..blue and white stripes or red and white spots or black and white with a little more drama?????
Our next door neighbours are doing a little remodelling too and have thrown out something that would make the perfect back to the bench l want for the porch.....next project watch this space lol
GOOGLE tracked down the product in B&Q for just over £8 a roll......l had to see if it was as good as the tutorial said it was and looked?....WOW!
tried a small sample on the wall with the Mummy portrait and the wallpaper l fancy for the bedroom
Just so l can show you a picture
It's not painted or even pasted to the wall only taped up but l can see it will be fabulous in the new house and far easier than tongue and groove boards AND less permanent if l change my mind in 12months time and want a different look!! hehe
My friend Kaz has a lovely daughter called Moo....and has been busy with an Easter project and if you have a few minute drop by and give your support for a new young crafter...she is so proud of her Easter egg basket and would love to hear a few words from you all
Woke up with a not so nice gut feeling that all was not well!!!...Seems l was wrong so everyone is telling me
Impatient l am and thing weren't moving as fast as l thought they should be so a few phone calls and everyone assures me we are still looking at about the 11th April for taking possession of Bakewell!!
