A quick lick of paint does wonders


There's nothing like a lick of white paint to brighten things up.

This morning I pulled this rather dreary looking deck chair out of the shed. 



I can distinctly remember the day I bought it.  That's what I love about all my furniture, there's a little story for every single piece, actually all the crockery too.

The deck chair was bought on a scorching hot day at a boot fair with my Auntie Pauline, for the bargain price of £2. I had just moved into a lovely flat with a garden and was desperate for some garden furniture.   I had intended at the time (over 5 years ago!!) to paint and re-cover it but just never got round to it.

That is until today.


After a couple of coats of paint and a little sewing this is what it looks like now ...



Rather lovely if I say so myself.



After I took the pics I walked into the kitchen and started picking up the leftover fabric off the floor and then thought "I could do something with that" ... so I made a removable pillow :o)





I would love to say that I then spent the entire day sitting in my lovely deck chair but I did not.   I think I will tomorrow though ...

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend x
