I fell in love with this sweet little table while I was out with Noah a couple of weeks ago. It was the perfect thing for me to experiment on, with all the geometric pattern ideas i’d been wanting to paint lately. Munchkin was a good sport, as he was made to walk with me, as we strapped the table in to the pushchair and made our way home (another reason I need to pass my test soon).

I started with a coat of primer on the top.DSC_0916Then I drew out my pattern and began to mask some of the lines, ready to get the fun started.DSC_0921DSC_0931DSC_0934DSC_0935Slowly it started coming together and after a week or so of doing a bit every evening, my geometric beauty was finished!DSC_0950DSC_0953DSC_0957I kind of love it. I also, as with everything else, want to keep it. But alas, it is going to it’s new home tonight.

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.
