Jenny Loves Retro

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.

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.

DSC_0069DSC_0745DSC_0746Although I was sad to see it go, it’s now enjoying a new home in a very nice couple’s seaside pad, in the lovely Portobello. 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…

Flat dreaming

We are quite smitten with a flat we have found, so of course I have been mentally decorating each room in the place ever since we went to see it. The place has a spare room *gasp* (BS says music room, I don’t even care i’m so delighted at the prospect) While we are waiting to see if it could ever actually be ours, here are some of the things i’ve been dreaming of. I am loving the thought of all white walls, colourful bits of furniture and wooden floors. Wowza!

Yes. A table where we could all sit together and throw food in each other’s faces. I love it.
