Red Kite Lodge Cabinet after… a lick of Annie Sloan paint and some wallpaper.  I gave the top a couple of coats of varnish so that guests can put cups and glasses on it safely.

This little table I was asked to do for my niece, by her sister in law for Christmas.It fits perfectly at the top of her stairs.

This was for my lovely friends at Camp Clump!

A few nests of tables, which are always good fun to do - all but the pink ones are happy in other peoples homes!

A few nests of tables, which are always good fun to do –  all but the pink ones are happy in other peoples homes! The three above were the newest paints i had bought.  They go so well together! The wood effect grey ones below, were great to do and they had some nice detail plus the glass top (that horrid leather looking stuff underneath) so you can decorate the top by cutting the paper to size and replacing the glass – ta dah! The thistle was a stencil and the pink ones, wallpaper.

A bit of re-upholstering on this one.  Not too difficult, so might have a go at a chair sometime, eek!

This was a nasty thimble holder, now transformed into a decorative piece, which i gave to my friend Karen when we visited her in the Isle of Man
