For eight years this dresser (which was dark oak) has stood in our car port, all alone and unloved! ;-)
I've often thought about painting it but have never actually got around to it.
Lately, we've had a lot of rotten weather here and so yesterday, whilst it was pouring with rain, I dragged the dresser out into my lovely little undercover/shabby area...and hey presto!
If I decide to do something, I get it done! No faffing around! The faffing comes later!
I decided on F&B Lulworth and F&B Blazer.
This afternoon, I put the finishing touches to it!
I'm really pleased with how it's turned out!
(And then I did the faffing around!)
I say this afternoon... because this morning I found myself in a queue, in town!
Each year, one of the charity shops has a grand linen sale! ;-)
Apparently, people come from far and wide especially for this sale!
And so off I went with a good friend to see what we could find!
I came back with some pretties, naturally...
It was not a bad sale, although sadly they had displayed a lot of it in the window, which meant that only one person could get into the window area at a time...Great!
I stood patiently, second in the queue to get into the window... whilst my friend rummaged through the pillow cases and embroidered tablecloths! ;-)
I was pretty pleased with my finds!
Not content with that, we then did the charity shops. Newton Abbot is a charity shop lovers dream. I think we counted 14!
A blue and white jug found its way into my possession!
And this pretty little, hand painted, trinket dish .
A crochet shawl for 60p!!
It's been a great day!
I came home happy..and even managed to paint some more slabs! LOL!
