I mentioned a wee while back that I was going to tackle the two small ugly orange pine side tables, bought from my local chazza for a fiver. Perfect size for little drinks tables but oh so offensive to the eye. Well, I'm pleased to say they are finished.
Not a lot of outlay either. As you know dear reader, I don't normally buy expensive materials for my upcycling projects, I just rootle around in the (wo)man shed and find some suitable bits and bobs. The paint I used for this project was a half price bargain purchased many moons ago. Luckily, about a quarter of the paint was left in the tin. It had thick skin covering it, but after a good stir, it was good to go.
Do you like my free plant pot? My big Agave had some babies and I thought they would look cool in these Pizza Express giant tomato tins. I just asked for them after a meal one night, and they were more than happy to let me have a few. They're also good for storing garden accoutrement in the greenhouse.
The top view of the tables show my free downloaded images, covered with several layers of decoupage glue. And lastly here are my bird feeders made from vintage cups and saucers. What's on your 'must get done before the Summer goes' project list?
