Well another week has passed..... did you have a good one??
Back to work for me & I can't believe how fast it's gone.
As Monday was the last day of my holiday I decided to tackle a project that's been in the pipeline for a long, long time!
I brought them & posted about it in October 2009 ...... so it's only taken nearly 2 years to do something with them! It's on my list of jobs to do every time I'm on holiday but I never get around to it....... but I had a real urge to cross it off my list last week.
First I took them apart to clean
This took longer then I thought as the screws had been painted over!
Sanding down the steps
Some lovely red spotty oil cloth
Can you see where this is going?
oh what a mess I made..... this was a plastic kind of craft paint that my dad brought me.... be warned you can't wash it off your hands!!! One small bit resulted in big red hands!!!
Then quickly putting it back together before the rain came...
I'm very happy & the total price was under £5! :)
They live in the red sewing corner of my kitchen
A job well done I think
We had a customer event on Thursday night at work with 25% off.....
we had wine
in fact I've been eating tapas for the last 3 days!!!
I also had Olivia's birthday this week, this was the first birthday in 7 that I didn't make her anything. So that was 2 nights out...... On Friday I attended a funeral, lovely way to spend your day off!
I worked all weekend then went out last night...... so today I'm doing nothing!
As it's raining I plan to watch movies & knit. I've been working on a rabbit toy which has worked out well so I'm hoping to make more for my Folksy shop.
So that was my week..... at least I feel I achieved something!
Hope you're all having a lovely bank holiday weekend
