Makeover Reveal!!

Hello all my lovely blogging buddies out there in blogland! How are we all this mid-week of autumn/spring? Things here at the home of Tag Around Teddies are a bit unsettled just at the moment as my Beloved Geek Boy finishes up his job this week to start a new work adventure next week, so I have to say I haven't been stitching ... BUT ... I do have a finish to show you.

Do you remember I shared a photo of a bargain I picked up from Gumtree for my sewing room ...

... a practical-but-not-very-pretty hutch the exact size to fit in the space at the end of my sewing table. And then I applied ...

... a lovely, chalky, shabby-chic-y finish of Canterbury Blue EZ2 Paint in Aged White and protective clear wax. Then I fussed a bit, fiddled a bit, floofed a bit (that's a VERY technical term, you understand!!) and the result is ...

,,, a sweetly shabby display and storage space for my sewing room! I am SOOOOO chuffed at how this piece has come up and as I said last time, pretty impressed with the Canterbury Blue EZ2 Paint chalk infused paint. Actually ... don't tell GB, but ... there are HEAPS more yummy colours in Juliana's range of paints that I'm dying to try out! Tee! Hee! Hee!

So with this makeover, my sewing room is starting to look a bit more like "ME", but there's still some more fussing, fiddling and floofing to be done before it ticks all my boxes ... stay tuned! :0)

And now I'm off to have a cup of peppermint tea and shuffle through Pinterest for a while to get some more ideas ... SHHHHH! ... Don't tell GB! He starts getting nervous whenever I tell him ... "I've been thinking ...!!" Tee! Hee! Hee! Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far and that you're doing a bit more sewing than my curtain panels in the hutch above! :0) OPAM gals ... are you keeping your sidebar lists up to date with your finishes?? Avoid the end-of-month-snuck-up-on-me panic and add your finishes as you, well ... FINISH ... them. :0) Have a blast, people ... and remember to hug your special people. :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

It looks brilliant Kris! Have you used this chalk paint before? How does it stand up to wear and tear? You've inspired me to dig out our stored furniture and make it pretty (only 20 years after we collected it! LOL). I'm thinking a drive to Canterbury Blue is on the cards for Saturday morning! LOL xx
