Happy Monday friends.
We spent a lovely weekend at the little house, making it more of our home, and we're certainly getting there.
I thought it might be nice if I start showing you some of the project we've been working on, and the first ... which I'm really proud of is, the old piano.
As some of you know, the house used to belong to Simon's Nan, and when we bought it a few years ago, a lot of the family took what they wanted from it and left what they didn't. Well, the piano was one of those that no body wanted. To be honest, I was over the moon, as I had plans for it anyway.
So here it is, in all its glory. I actually painted it before the house renovations started and before it went into storage - that way I didn't have to move it too much (its sooo heavy) and it didn't matter what mess I made with the paint around it.
Its funny, it was one of those projects that I really panicked over. As, although nobody wanted it, it had always been in the family and well, you know what people are like over change. But I'm happy to say, everyone that comes into our home, falls in love with it. I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint, and yes, I still have the stool to do and make a new seat cover, but oh I love chalk paint. I haven't waxed it, as I think over time, I'll need to do more painting over it, and ... uummm, I still may make a few tweaks to it.
I've been upcycling lots of furniture and knick knacks and I will show them all with you. Saying all that, I still have lots to do, but I'm really loving it.
