Disaster struck me today with my latest piece!! well, i am exaggerating BUT I had just finished my final coat of wax and was screwing all the bits together when my brand new knob broke off :-(
Until I get it fixed, here is a sneak peak!!

I call this one my Gaga Telephone Seat because, lets face it, it is a little crazy!
I have wanted to use this shade of paint for a long time (crown, 'mojito') and went out on a whim and bought it. I wasn't sure if it would work when I got home and was even less sure after the first coat... BUT all worked out well in the end. The fabric I had initally chosen was black and white so I had to rethink it and ordered this comic-strip fabric called 'the dysfunctional family' from http://www.gagafabrics.co.uk/.
A few staples and coats of wax later it is ready for sale (although I would be quite happy to keep this one!)

I purchased this tiny little table at the Malawi Mercy Shop Portstewart. I wanted to colour it white and put either nice wallpaper or floral material on top but getting a bit of glass to cover this proved difficult! So, I went ahead and handpainted a couple of coats of primer and then spray painted some white gloss on top - this way there are still visible brush strokes peeping through. Next, dad had a brainwave of tiling the top which is much more practical and hard wearing! We found the perfect one at a local store.
