Up cycling Table


I bought this table many years ago, in fact it was 25 years ago. I painted it green and used it for about 5 years. Then it went into the loft. When we moved here, I thought I would re-do it, rather than throw it away. So today, I painted it with Hessian colour Chalk Paint. It took 3 coats. One dry, I used the 12 x 12 stencil, that I bought especially for this table. I used a silvery dark grey craft paint. It has pride of place now, next to my reading chair, in the Conservatory.....

Oh and I finished this cardigan over the weekend for our granddaughter Elsie. Its only taken me 6 months! I have had so many other things to do first.

Thank you for popping by today.

Kraftyhands Colour chip Challenge




The Colour Chip Blog challange for the Month of March is Green, Lilac and Yellow, using a scalloped circle for the shape. This is my take on the Challenge.

I have used a 7x7 inch card blank. A Marianne Die, for the scallop and Summer of 59 CD from Kraftyhands, HERE

The lady is decoupaged on the front and I have added a flat lady on the inside.
