I have had a lovely weekend, filled with forum friends, PVA, new wardrobes and getting my craft room back after packing it away in August.
First off the PVA was an essential ingredient in my makeover of this little set of drawers i picked up for £2 at the last barn sale i went to. They were really practical for keeping some of my vintage threads.
And I liked the quilted plastic that they are covered with, but after a week or two I decided I could not live with the Fleur DE Ly's any longer.
So still in my Pj's on Sat morning I got the glue out and some lovely CK paper napkins, and this is the result.
I covered the back panel first and I am so glad I did as the motif still showed through the napkins, so out came the white paint and a quick undercoat did the trick.
Hubbie made me smile when he asked if I realised I had used different colored napkins - he thinks it would have looked better if I had not used 4 different ones - what do you think?
whilst i was getting stuck up with PVA my stepson was busy making me built in wardrobes in my craft room. the doors still need to be added but I was allowed to fill up the shelves!
With our extension I gained about 2 feet in length on this room and the sloping ceiling was removed - I also gained a new window to gaze out of. It is so nice to have my sewing area back.
So today I started playing with some vintage linen, and made some drawstring bags
All lined with vintage fabric. I made a lavender bag out of some lawn to fit into one of them as well
Did you notice the background fabric in the last picture?? - I bought this yesterday at a vintage clothes fair in London. I think it is German, or French and I got over 4 meters of it, and it is defiantly my favorite fabric at the moment.
I had the chance to meet up with 2 very special people I met via the SCC this weekend and I am proud to be able to call them friends, they both inspire me in different ways and hold a special place in my heart. Thank you ladies for all the fun, laughter and food :-)
