My latest piece of furniture is this retro long-mirrored dresser which I bought at refurnish. It was a complete bargain as part of the wood at the back was cracked, but it was nothing which couldn't be replaced!

I painted it with a roller in a deep glossy black paint, and the drawers in 'antique grey' which is a lovely light shade and really compliments the black. The original golden rose handles were in such good condition that I had to keep them just as they were.

Exhibition at Flowerfields

Last night the Creativity Thirst classmates and myself had a celebration evening to mark our progress and completion of the course, and what a night it was! We all got the opportunity to display our work at Flowerfields and even though we had seen each others work before, I was amazed at the quality of the displays. I was very proud!

Mad Hatter China Cabinet! - £110

I went a bit crazy on this one, but i absolutely LOVE it!! It's a bright pop of colour! I think it would look fantastic for displays in a shop or at home stacked with cocktail glasses...

I bought it at refurnish (Coleraine) a month or two back and have been working on it since. I got the paint-colour custom made this time and finished it with a couple of coats of wax - I think wax gives much better protection that varnish. I ripped out the old pinky fabric and updated it with a black floral Laura Ashley wallpaper.
What do you all think?!
