Another from this to this!

Got this lovely orange pine corner unit from the car boot, just what I needed but not in that colour!

So with a little work, (sanding, washing and a few coats of paint it was transformed into this little cream wonder! And it fits like a glove in the corner of my lounge!

Just needs a few more 'treasures' on it!
Thanks for looking!

From this to this!

I got this frame one rainy Saturday at local car boot for £1 about a year ago. I thought one day I will do something with it and until yesterday it hung in our bedroom over a mirror that was too small for it! Then I had a great idea and set about painting it cream to go with my living room!

And this is how it turned out! With the addition of a wire heart notice board (also from a car boot for £1), I now have somewhere to put some family photos! I love it!

It was easy to attach the wire heart to the frame using homemade wire hook/eyes and a few screws! They were made for each other, (although the wire heart was only brought 2 weeks ago) they fitted together as if they were meant to be!
Thanks for looking!

A lovely day to do the washing!

A lovely day to do the washing, a mixture of sun, wind and cloud! Perfect!

A cup of tea?

Well it was a bowl of tea actually! I used some scraps of linen, lace and ribbon in the tea and look what happened!

I was amazed at the different shades I got! One tea bag (I used Yorkshire tea)  All the pieces went in together for the same amount of time then I washed them and then used fabric softener.

I wasn't expecting the lace (from a wedding dress) to go quite so 'orangey' and it was quite colourfast!
Well they are on the washing line, goodness knows what the neighbours think of my washing lately, there has been spray coloured doilies from beige to black, tea dyed rags, doilies and the odd baby dress! They must think I am pretty weird! Lol
Thanks for taking a look! See you soon!
