New from Old

Hi you all, it's been wet and windy  here up till now - what a summer! But today I woke to SUNSHINE! It's still a bit windy / cloudy, but how nice to see the sun!
Today I want to share my freshly painted and grunged sewing table. This week I want to start on a bookcase, but it will just be painted white. After adding the rose rub-ons to the drawers I aged and crackled them with a 2-component crackle varnish, and then gave them a bit of colour with green ink, some black paste and a little Inka Gold. I quite like the way it has turned out, and if I don't like it some time, I can paint it again!






Have a good Sunday, take care, and thanks for dropping in!

  7. Valerie, your altered sewing table is just stunning! I couldn't imagine wanting to change it either as the shabby chic, vintage style is so gorgeous.
    Hope you have a good Sunday too and our weather here is the same as yours - just as well as I have yet more washing out!
    Hugs, Fliss xx
