Finished Lloyd Loom Laundry Hamper

Here she is, all done!! I am so thrilled with the result, I think that she is so pretty I don’t want to hide her in the laundry and perhaps she might become storage for throw rugs.

For a first timer on the upholstery front I am happy I picked such an easy piece, although there were still some tricky bits in it. Don’t you just LOVE the Willow inspired blue and white fabric? Very happy I was able to paint and reuse the plaited braid, polished up the handle and dooone!! Yeppie 🙂

After being embarrassed of how she has looked for over a decade I am motivated to get on with my long, long list of other treasures. The move house countdown is on afterall!

Upcycled Architects Desk

Miss Goodman Property

The husband had some time to kill between appointments and decided to go to Woolongabba Antique Centre. I know Gasp!! that he went to this treasure trove without Moi! But then he bought home this little Architects Desk, thought it would be great for The Daughter to use for her art.

I thought it was clunky and no beauty. Number One Daughter wanted it in her room straightaway! After my protests that it needed tweeking I was given ‘You have 7 days!’.

Eyes.Wide.Open.!

Well now I am proud of this little desk. My one week of sanding, undercoating, painting, painting and more painting has resulted in a little bit Scandinavian, Coastal, Girly Industrial with a modern twist.
