Ever had a project or three, that seem to take a lot longer to complete? I seem to be floating between to such rascals this week. I really did underestimate firstly how much bloomin paint a 1930's wardrobe would need. It's sucking the life out of my poor Annie Sloan white......what to do?????
That nasty veneer just won't allow me to cover it up. I'm furious with it. Furious I tell you.
Also I am deeply upset with the red and pink inside, so much so, I can't bring myself to show you. I thought it would be a good idea to varnish the inside, as the bumblebee's clothes and shoes will be in there. And knowing my little bumblebee's they'll be in there hiding and making potions with glitter. We are yet to move away from wipe-able surfaces!
But it just looks wrong. And it has stunk the whole house out ( bumblebee's in our bed last night...one ratty mummy ) and, AND, the girls have friends over to play after school...waaaaaaaaaahhh.
From one meltdown to another, actually I quite like this project. I just thought I would get it done in a few evenings. Noooooooooo Nattie, silly girl. That would just be utterly ridiculous.
Remember the last post with a beano hint? Well STILL unfinished, but I wanted to show you a bit of it.......my beano chair.......
Q wants it for himself. Big bumblebee wants it too. As does little bumblebee. I say NO this is for a friends boy, his birthday present infact.......this too, will be varnished once finished. We will all be fashioning clothes pegs on the end of our noses for the next week or so .....ok?
