Why I Rarely paint things....

I have been painting this work bench in the hope of getting it over to the WAC to sell. I am really happy with how it is coming along. I should have taken a before shot as it was half painted orange. Although I don't mind orange it really didn't suit so I decided to give it a bit of a revamp.
I normally try to avoid painting for a couple of reasons. Firstly I never seem to have the time, and things sit around for ever waiting to be done and secondly,
because despite my best efforts, I manage to get covered in paint myself. 
At least the white highlights will make a bit of a change from the grey.

I am yet to examine my dotty ribbon for damage but no doubt I will have got some on it too....aargh!! 


  1. You'll have a Cruella De Vil look about you with those paint stripes in your hair. I always get paint in my hair too. xx

  2. Me three! Oh well. The bench is looking great! Xx

  3. That bench looks fantastic - really lovely! I'm the same whenever I paint not quite sure how I manage to make so much of a mess! Love your blog and have to get to the WAC to check out your store!

  4. It looks great lovely shade of blue to. Im to chicken to paint furniture incase it goes wrong i have used wood stain etc that is more up my street ;-) and easier. Fingers crossed its not on your lovely ribbon. dee xx

  5. We all manage to paint our hair, I think!

  6. Even I prefer not to paint furniture as it can get messy at times:)
