Before...

Thought I would let you guys know what I am up to :O)
Its not a paper project this time, (although I do have a few cards finished and almost ready to post).
*
I am giving our breakfast table and 4 chairs a make over.....
Here is a photo of the before,
*

Its not easy to see from the photo
But the paint is a very light 'duck egg blue'
I painted them a couple of years ago,
they were an orangey pine colour when I got them (bleh)
*
I inherited this table and four chairs from my mum about 7 years ago,
who bought them in an auction about 40 years ago.
When she worked at 'The Norwegian Trade Center' in London.
These were the tables and chairs they had in their canteen
at the time
when they decided to refit the interior.
They have lasted so well and the chairs
are the kind that you can sit comfortably in
for ......a long time :O)

Thanks for stopping by, pop back to see the result hopefully tommorow evening.
Regards Nina X

  1. Hm, can't wait to see what you'll come up with. I'd put a paper though at least on the chair. Had the little one's Christmas chair covered with paper and then varnished now he has a monster chair. :) Let me know if you want to see the result, I'll post a pfoto on my blog.
