Second-hand Ercol Dresser.
Over time I realised my welsh dresser shelved top just gathered dust it really wasnt that useful.
Not in my Kitchen anway.
I used the top in another room.(at my sewing machine for smaller bits n bobs)
I put a base on the sideboard to lift it to the same height as my Kitchen worktops.
It stores all my plates :)
Another piece of really cheap furniture...
Got this for £11.00 and im so glad I bought it..
It is such a great piece of furniture..
Has a small hanging space for shirts ..
Painted with some homemade chalk paint and plaster detailing :)
The paper tiles up and down the side of the fire are about 5 years old and they are still going strong.
The decoupaged hearth is around 2 years old and has some burn marks but that was to be expected.
It still looks good though.
Working with plaster is amazing..
Its got to be one of my most favourite things to play around in...
You can create wonderful designs..
Charity shop sideboard...£40.00
I think this piece would have been worth a few bob If I hadnt painted it. :) I dont care lol..
I love it..
I dont usually do craft fairs.
I think this one is a wee bit special.
Selkirk has been getting a well needed facelift and they have completely redone the market square.
There is now a new craft market opening up and I will be attending the opening day.
Which is actually pretty exciting!!!
Selkirk Farmers Market.
So at the moment im juggling orders, stock and trying to work out craft stall display..its all hard work, my hat off to anyone who has a stall full time.
Here is my Table runner 2nd Attempt
I think it tells the customer exactly what Jiggle MaWiggle is...
I printed off pictures of Victorian tiles using matt photo paper.
I just measured the tiles and recreated the same size print.
I painted over my exsisting tiles with matt emulsion (latex paint)
I cut out the tiles and P.V.Ad them (white school glue).
Once I had gently flattened them I left them to dry.
I went over the tiles with a water based varnish (about 3 times).
I got this Glass cabinet from the auction house for about £8.00.
I needed more storage but not on display storage..
I used some leftover wallpaper to hide the glass fronts so I was able to store all my bits n bobs.
Poor Gabe was not a happy doggy when I put my new cabinets under my studio window yesterday..
He lost his favourite sitting place.
Last night I tore my bedroom apart so I could put a unit for him under the window...
Hes a happy doggy again..but im not so happy with the bedroom anymore...:/
Im afraid the Dog comes first..
Im loving all my new storage cupboards in my sewing studio...
These big units are holding so much stuff its great..
Managed to empty out my bedroom/under my bed of big tubs of crafts and products.
(Ive hurt my shoulder though...cant do what I used to anymore) :(
I never thought I would see the day that I would be happy to get rid of my white painted floorboards.
After years of patching, filling, painting & cleaning hundreds of times...Im not to sad to see them go.
If you have a dog patterned floors are the way to go.
If I didnt have a dog I would definitely have white floors..plain tiles...
I cant see any dog hair or dirt!!!!
I installed these bad boys in my Studio today..But I think ive given myself tennis elbow..
Somewhere to store all my craft books that I collect.
Ooh a blank canvas...what to do with these babies..
Paint, decoupage, blackboard..some big colourful knobs on the front :)
I cant say that without laughing ...
I hate all the wastage from cutting vinyl tiles.
I floored my hallway yesterday and used the tile off cuts and a bit of floor grout and adhesive to make a faux fire hearth.
I think it turned out quite well. :)
Thats me just getting around to decorating some of the damage after the flooding.
It happened in December!!!
Ive been so busy with the shop I really dont have any time to do anything any more.
This is my Studio window wall.
