Art journaling - bubbles

I did this page the other day after being inspired by Tracy Scott -My Mixed Media Journey, I just love all her work.  This one kind of reflects the state of my mind during the last few weeks. Feel in a better place now so will try something a bit more springlike next time.

Dining table and chairs makeover

Finally finished the table and chairs maker. I have used Annie Sloan paint in Emile.  The fabric is the pair of curtains from the window which is being blocked in to form the new bathroom wall. I am quite pleased with the result and it has lightened the room a little bit.

Little cabinet

I bought this little pine cabinet from a charity shop in Exeter last November for £4.00, unfortunately I forgot to take any photos of the "before". I have given it two coats of Craig and Rose chalky emulsion in Saxe Blue.  I think it was around £2.00 for this sample pot and I have about half a pot left. I finished with a little treasure gold distressing. It was a jewellery box, it now holds my day to day makeup.

I thought I'd give the dining room table and chairs a revamp whilst the building work was taking place. I was a bit scared about tackling such a big job, six chairs and a very large extending table. As the window in the dining room is being bricked up to form one of the bathroom walls the curtains I brought quite recently have no purpose so I have used them to upholster the dining chairs. Up to now I have done four.  I will post a picture of the finished articles.
