When I was pregnant with bubba number two this was my project. We wanted a small table for the hall, just a drawer, a cupboard, not too big, not too small. We looked and looked and found nothing....until this horror came along.....
Believe it or not it was just right. Soooo a lot of hard sanding later, often very early on weekend morning (I couldn't sleep) and a lot, a lot of white paint later we ended up with the version shown in our hall. I found some nice glass handles and thought well its ok but something was missing....
So I was clearing out a cupboard and came across some samples of Florence Broadhurst 'Aubrey' fabric. At one time I had hoped to cover my Ercol chair in them, but unfortunately at £50 a metre it did not come to pass. Previously I had sewn some together to make a cushion, and luckily they fitted perfectly under the glass top- so what do you think? I think its just right.

This post is also an excuse to show my 'woodland charms' bracelet bought in Boo Vake (an amazing shop). Yet another birthday present to self. I am having a bit of a jewellary fest at the moment but luckily I got some lovely pieces from family and friends too. So thank you.
Slowly but surely I am getting the hang of the iphone and may yet manage some photo apps, anything to help improve my snaps!
