More painting etc..

Can't believe the change in the weather here, it was really hot and sunny until Wednesday evening when we had a thunderstorm and it tipped it down with rain. Today it's quite cold and I have just lit the fire! after spending ages trying to put a picture in my blog header, got there in the end although I did want it more like a banner anyway it's a photo of the poppies at Eden last summer. I've completed some more makeovers- a wooden chair which was stained green and I have now painted in aged white and made a simple seat pad from Cath Kidston's blue ottoman rose fabric on one side and Globatex pale blue heart on the other.

I've also painted and covered the stool (before photo in a previous post). I used Cath's antique rose blue oilcloth for the seat pad. And finally I painted and lined the lid of a wooden box that I paid £1 for at a car boot. This was painted with aged white and inset with Cath's gingham blue oilcloth.

They look really good - really fresh - well done.

Typing this wearing a fleece! A couple of days ago, it was sandals and lightweight clothes.

Keep up the good work.
