It needs a lot of work - paint and a new seat canvas (this is that shiny slippy nasty fabric!) but I've been eyeballing deckchairs on ebay and I think I've got a bargain.
Finds today also included
4 glass candle holders (I bought 2 lead crystal ones too but got them home and didn't like them so they are added to our car boot stash) - £1.70 in total for the 4.
a lovely round glass jelly mould for £1 and a 2 tier cake stand for £2.
I also got a couple of toys for the baby for 80p that I am currently trying to dry out properly as I overdid it with the milton I think!!
Apart from the trip across town to the boot sale, I've done nowt but sit on this here computer!! I won 26 stools (don't ask!! ) on ebay yesterday, and the seller is yet to make contact. I got an invoice with a £50 courier charge on but the listing says collection welcome - and thats what I want to do!! I have emailed but as yet no reply...I'm not well known for my patience and I really want to organise it as I need to go with no children so I can fit them in the car!! Fingers crossed I will get a response soon - watch this space for news on what someone might do with 26 stools!!!
Remember the cupboard I messed up? Well my lovely OH has sanded it back today so I can go for round 2 - with emulsion this time!! Here it is half sanded - you can see the hideous paint on it! Not the look I had in mind!!
I've one completed project this week..
£1 from the charity shop
to thisI'm really pleased with how it has turned out - its painted with dulux willow tree emulsion on the legs and flag wax in antique pine on the top.
Hope everybody is still awake - apologies for the mammoth post. Think I'll have to post more often so I don't have to blather on for so long. X
