A Pretty Mirror, Lilies and a sheepish return from renovation exile! ;)

Hello!

Is anybody still here?  It’s been a little while, we have been renovating and for most bloggers this would be gold…  lots of progress photos, planning and reveals.  For me though it was all I could do to keep my head above water and keep on swimming through each day! 

I fully plan to share with you the reno details and a bunch of photos, but today, inspired by these beautiful Lilies I thought I’d dip my toe back into blogging with a mirror makeover…

I was drawn to the lovely curvy shape, the carved details at the top and the gorgeous bevelled mirror which follows the frame shape.  I didn’t even remember to snap a before pic (I’m really out of touch with it I know!).

 

 
Mirror is available for sale, pop me an email if you are interested! 
 


Thanks so much for stopping by, it’s lovely to be back! 🙂

Sweet Vintage Table in Annie Sloan Duck Egg

Hello lovely friends!

Blustery and cold in Sydney, which is enabling me to catch up on jobs around here and settle in our new baby.  Meet Miss Paisley Puppy!

Paisley is a Flat Coated Retriever and she’s just divine.  She’s totally stolen our hearts already.  I’d forgotten what it was like to have a new baby in the house… Crying in the night, accidents on the floor and so on!

Now onto a little project I finished a few weeks ago.  I love this little vintage table, it has great character and had been ever so patient biding its time in my garage, awaiting a makeover.

After completing BIG Bessy here one could say I’m hooked on Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Love. 

So I was walking around the house looking for my next victim something to paint, which happens often and frequently sees our cat ducking for cover whenever she sees me with paint brush in hand!  I kid you not 😉 

Then I remembered this little table hiding in the garage.  I almost skipped to the garage to grab it and within minutes I was painting my little heart out 🙂

After:

I painted the side skirt detail in white for some contrast.

Addicted. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Jo xx
