Remember me?!

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post! I have been very neglectful of my poor blog but since going back to work full time I haven't had the time or energy to post, let alone do anything to post about!!

But I've had a (much needed) week off and managed to do a cross a few things off my ever growing list!

First was this dresser unit that had been in Miss. Pink's bedroom for the last few years.

I needed to move it out to make way for a dolls house that was mine when I was a little girl (I'll post photos of that soon). Unfortunately our home isn't big enough to keep it so I thought I'd have a go at painting it before selling.

I finally got around to it this week and this is how it looks now.

I did try to varnish the top to keep the pine colour but it went horribly wrong and I ended up having to paint the whole thing!

I quite like it (more than I should for something I'm having to part with) and even Mr. P said he was impressed and he dislikes this kind of furniture!

I did also make a cute little car caddy for a friend's son's birthday (from this tute) but realised after I gave it to him I forgot to take photos! But it's a great guide for anyone wanting to make one.

Anyway, I will hopefully post again sooner than 2 months from now!


  1. It looks fantastic, you've done a great job.

  2. Oh that's gorgeous now. Make a lovely sideboard in a dining room.

  3. Glad you are back, I would have been loathe to part with that it's lovely!

  4. That is absolutely amazing, I love it. I reckon that would have a price tag of about £800 in Laura Ashley, very well done! xxxx
