Here are my rebirthing projects:
Revamp this coffee table
|This coffee table once belonged to my parents-in-law.|
The stain is dreadful but the timber is good meranti
|Not my most flattering angle!|
|Looks like I am doing all the work but Rick helped out with the groovy bits!|
And cheer up this toddler table and chairs
|A friend gave me this table as her children have out-grown it.|
The stickers were to cover up some missing paint caused by her son
trying to 'clean' it with a broken airfreshner concentrate bottle- it smells great!
The first fun part is the
argument discussion one has with hubby over colour scheme and purpose. The second is the cost! Paint isn't cheap and the more colours you want to slap on the higher the dollars (and the less the desirability of rebirthing instead of good old fashion capitalistic purchasing!).
Me: Do you feel like going to Bunnings?
Rick: *leaping to feet* I'll get the kids in the car!
Me: I wouldn't have gotten such a response if I asked if you felt like a trip to Spotlight!
Rick: Mmmm . . . I still would have taken you but the boys and I would be in the cafe opposite.
|Once I get Liam to wear a hat, I don't tell him to take if off indoors, this only confuses him!|
Aren't those trolleys gorgeous?!
The inspiration for my colour scheme comes from Janelle Wind's book Pieces of Me.
I can't wait to show you the end product!
Might be a couple of weeks, planning a party this week!
