Greetings dear friends & readers
I am off to my Mum's for a week but wanted to share this post before I go.
Way back in 2016 - almost 4 years to the day - I purchased this purple cupboard from the Church Op Shop for the princely sum of $3 !
You can read my blog post about it * Here * but for those of you who can't be bothered scrolling, here is an old pic of it in all it's purple glory 💜
And here (below) is the first revamp I did on it ... I used it at my Cottage to display the pots of babies tears plants that I used to sell.
Roll forward 4 years & it had sat on my Cottage deck, neglected & forlorn ... home to birds, spiders, rodents & other creatures !!
I hauled it up to my house & gave it a Very long overdue scrub.
|You can still see the original purple colour on the back of it here|
Then proceeded to paint it in front of the fire on my dining room carpet (Yes - I use splash covers)!!
|Once again the colour is Resene "Hot Chilli" - a leftover testpot|
Once it was red again I decided to stencil the drawer & then the lower front panel - I was inspired by my red kettle from last week's post as the pop of white seemed to stand out so well on the red.
I lined the drawer with a thick black rubbish bag before planting .... my hope is that the impatiens & the lobelia will grow & spill out over the front of the drawer.
|Note to Self ..... Your red chair needs a paint now Julie !!!|
I have tucked the pots away in a sheltered spot while I am down at Mum's as we get so many strong winds here during the month of October.
I have been working diligently on a large soy candle order to go down to Hawera with me.
My friend Joy from The Joy Within is taking part in a Christmas House Tour on 28th November - this is a fundraiser for St John's & a group of friends open their homes all decorated for Christmas - Oh what a sight it would be 💗
I miss these two so much when I go away - but this morning there was a huge fight between them both ... hissing, spitting & Lots of fur flying (mainly ginger !!)
Now to see them tucked up together (Yes on the good bedspread!!!) 😐 it's hard to believe they were anything but good mates.
Have a lovely rest of the week dear friends,
Thanks So Very Much for your visits here today,
With much love & friendship to you all,
Julie & the furry ones x0x0x0
