Have had two good finds at the car boot at West Bay on Sunday morning, first there was this cupboard, the chap who was selling told us 'that it had been in an old house in London' it had some sort of brown treacle like stain on it, very sticky.....but only 5 quid...
so with lots of elbow grease and a scrapy instrument, that only joiners who have been around a long time have, hubby set too and cleaned it up, there was a lot of goo and I of course got the lovely job of cleaning it all up, well that what apprentices and gofors are for isnt it, and of yes brewer upers, must admit it didnt take him long to do it, so now it looks like this
We painted the inside to make it look a bit brighter, its a grey colour, but now its bland and boring, so was going to put a map on the back, but then thought you wouldn't be able to see it, then had the idea, while I was looking for some scrapbooking paper, I could use scrapbooking paper and puts lots of different ones together and make it rather daring. But of course needed new as none I had was suitable, so it arrived this morning, but of course being that excited about it arriving only ordering it yesterday, forgot to take pictures, so will have to wait until its slapped on the back of the cupboard, but has an appropriate name of MisMatch perfect for a thrifty cupboard.
Also found this Lloyd Loom lookalike for 4 quid and is going to go in daughters bedroom, been looking for ages for one, this hasn't been doctored yet, knowing her it will stay like this, it does have the original top underneath the gingham, which is purple and gold metallic flowers.
Also been making more cards and lavender hearts for the next craft fair at the Town Hall here in Bridport, this Saturday, 21st July, also been trying to stock up on cards as another fair next Saturday 28th at St Marys Church Hall, Bridport....
lavender hearts (sorry about the lighting)
retro style cards
and dare I say it been trying to get a start on Christmas cards (shh) for the fairs as as well as the Town Hall and St Marys, there is one at Dorchester and Weymouth, so don't want to be rushing getting them done!
So that has been my two weeks in pictures and a little bit of work as well, of course have to find time to fit that in.
