Curves in all the right places
I hit the op shops with a good friend this week. We programmed her navman and hit a suburb I have never been to before. Despite the awful cream of mushroom soup colour, the shape of this little table caught my eye straight away. I seem to have a bit of a thing for asymmetrical structures with curved ends, remember the curbside find?
I also really love a small project and tackled it with gusto yesterday, a few coats of white paint and isn't she beautiful now? The blue dish was an oppie find from a while back that I could not bring myself to photograph with a custard yellow backdrop. So nice with a freshly painted white wall behind it.
While I think of it, I did also learn a super cute crochet edge, and of course had to attack that pillow in a frenzy to test it out. Very much looking forward to doing a few more with this trim.
So while I had the white paint out today, I suddenly realized the day was warm, the breeze was decent and the paint was drying pretty quickly. No better time to get stuck into that huge dragging project to de- custard my living room.
The undercoat is done on that whole wall now, another corner is complete. Legoman thinks I am nuts as the renovation we are planning will require for some of these walls to be removed or replaced. He just does not understand what even another 6-12 months of daily custard will do to my sanity.
Lucky for op shopping, look at the rest of the haul from this week. A little pile of Golden books, a gorgeous blanket and a teeny tiny teacup set for miss Liongirl.
Hoping to be back soon with some white white white walls. In the meantime, linking in with Sophie for more glorious treasures,
