Quick painting project....


Take some modern gold frames....


Paint with off white emulsion paint.....



They will need two or three coats of paint to even out the brush strokes...... then a bit of sandpaper distressing and a coat of clear wax polish.

Et voila...


Pictures made from Kate Forman / French linen fabrics.....pretty enough to grace any boudoir!


Transformed mirror and my bargain bunches of flowers from Tesco ....reduced to 75p a bunch.
Extavagantly, I splashed out on two bunches for maximum impact in my big white jug.....



Hexham Vintage and Retro Fair tomorrow....think it will be a pink theme with a bit of red and white .....off to pack....must dash....
See you soon.
