Finally finished the patchwork cover for my hall table and added the bobble trim!I'm quite pleased with it now!Also took a little wicker hamper from my craft room for extra storage.

I also finally finished painting this mirror, a car boot find that I've had hanging around for a year! I'm a bit of a hoarder!

It took 3 coats of metal paint, but I'm really pleased with the results! Athough when I pulled the masking tape off it pulled a tiny bit of the paint off too so I need to retouch that!

I've put his basket at the bottom of the stairs too to carry bits and pieces up and down and ATTEMPT to keep it tidy! Guess where I got it from?

Twas a bargain at only £2 I just had to get it!

I've got a nasty cold this weeked so I will be keeping cozy indoors, I have completed a few knitting projects though. Do you remember the pink candyfloss wool?

I have knitted it into Shabby Chic Christmas Decorations and trimmed them with rosebuds from my stash.I shall pop some in my Etsy shop I think.
Have a lovely weekend gals!

This mirror looks really great - just like your table now. It reminds me that I have had lots of little pieces of furniture in my basement... for 3 years... or more... that need such a makeover. What am I waiting for ???
