A little bit of Florence

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.


  1. I think it is just right too ! X

  2. I used to be a Broadhurst and oddly enough my granny was Florence Broadhurst - but a different one. I'm so impressed at all the craft projects you get done while having 2 small children; I love this piece of furniture, it looks great.


It is always amazing to know you read and comment - so thank you very much.
