Donna, of Doings of Doone, made me a hoodie doll... the cutest little hoodie doll ever and I thought she might like a chair to sit on after the long flight to get here.. because I promised to give her a good home if Donna made me one!
On my other desk is the result of my mailbox altering.... the one I wasn't sure I should touch as someone had obviously spent a lot of time painting the farmyard pictures on it... but you lot said I could.... so I did!!
This is before I got the paints out...
I painted it brown, then gave it a coat of crackle and then painted it black.
I got my new Graphic 45 papers out and lots of bits and pieces... love those metal Graphic 45 flowers.
What a work up it was getting that door knob on the front... it appears that in a case of about 7 hundred drill bits of various sizes and shapes not one of them was a countersink drill bit... so we improvised and in the end we made it fit nicely!!
and inside is a lace wrapped bundle of 'love letters'...
The metal trim around the bottom are 7Gypsies book trims and I cut them down the centre and glued them on, think they look pretty good!! Oh and Elizabeth should be super impressed as I actually dyed the lace with tea!! I was amazed at how well it worked and it does make it a nice vintagey colour.
Don't forget to head over to Julia's for the exceedingly long list of amazing desks to snoop about in... I don't think there has been a week when I haven't learned something new.
