Can’t. Stop. Painting…

I’m a bit make-over-obsessed at the moment and have been painting everything in sight. Remember when I found these beauties? Wanting to brighten up Noah’s room a wee bit, I finally got around to painting and re-covering the ottoman, which is currently being used as his toy/junk box.

My next victim was a bargain book shelf I found at the local charity shop. As our walls aren’t strong enough to hold up any shelves, I really wanted something freestanding where I could display my favourite vases, pics and books.

Patterned projects

My lovely, sad-sack of a dressing table was slowly becoming a permenant fixture, bashed by Noah’s toy hammer, crammed full of phone chargers, make-up and other junk drawer goodies. So, I decided to take the plunge and paint it a couple of weeks ago. I had some left over paints from previous projects and chose a gemetric design for the front of the drawers.

It being the first thing I have ever sold, I was more than a little bit excited and went out and found my next project, a mid- century sideboard/dresser, in need of some love and colour. I’m itching to get started.

I’ve got a thing at the moment for gemoetric designs and feel like embracing all kinds of colourful loveliness. Check out these beauties…
