Just six weeks to go until our little one is expected to arrive and we are so excited! We finally managed to get most of the room sorted and are so pleased with how it turned out. There are plenty of hand made projects and objects from special people. What a joy it is to prepare a room for a new person :)
Baby in the belly, adding a brushed felt Weaver's nest
Fun and easy diy Alphabet Art
Joe's water colour paintings of the birds we see from our window.
A Kenyan monkey and some good advice.
A cloudy sky from Glasgow :)
A hand made blanket, a Taiwanese Rhino and a family heirloom.
So a while back a friend gave us this fantastic piece of
wood he found at a steel foundry. He had plans for it but just wasn’t getting
round to them, and when I spied it in his garage my mind exploded a little
with the possibility this piece heldJ. So we loaded it up and took it home. I must say it
was really Joe who made this thing go from what it was to what it is. I applied
a little bit of varnish at the end and supplied refreshments along the way, but
the rest was him, even the process photos J
The biggest task was to get that top piece of wood off, it was quite a pain but it meant Joe needed to buy a new tool so he was happy :)
Then we had a few of these guys to deal with...
But finally it came off and its potential was looking evermore promising :)
I really liked the wood detail on the inside so wanted to make sure we would still be able to see it.
A quick coat of white varnish...
Add a few feet and a piece of glass and there you have it!
Hello lovely coffee table :)
I think this we spent more on this project than we have on our other diys, which was mostly just making sure we got strong glass but it's been well worth it :)
