I’m not a great finisher – I’ve said it before and a while ago I began a very cool little project. I have to say I worked hard and I was pleased but the rest of the work had to be done in the garage. I don’t really like to work out in the garage. I like to be in the midst of any action and near a warm fire.
In this instance it was delightful daddy, husband extraordinaire who finished the project. It required 3 coats of varnish. And he did it as a suprise for us all.
Previously it was a plain white chair that was a bit tired. Master 4 loves buses and maps so he is WELL pleased. So am I.
The chair only cost $1 so it wasn’t an expensive project!
I also made some felt brooches last night. One for a gift the others to be put in the Christmas present box. Deb has a Christmas present a week challenge going on her blog that I want to get involved in – but then some of you will know what you are getting for Christmas! These brooches will be for my girly friends but I need to make another 10 or so. From here on I’ll try to photograph subtle elements of the gifts. Not sure I’ll complete one a week but every bit helps!
