What I'm working on...

It's been a busy week - I've sold the turquoise long console, the rattan and glass coffee table, the vintage dining table and the bench chest. Thanks to all my lovely customers (and blog followers) for supporting me in this venture.

I have a lot of new things in progress, both nearly finished and not started.

Here's my carport currently - sorry to my husband as our car is still on the street instead of undercover.  I had a friend come over yesterday to sand and prime with me (I'm too much of a control freak to let her near the actual top coats! Sorry and thank you TA!)

In progress are:
Vintage Rustic Industrial Sideboard - turquoise and then heavily distressed.

Another Union Jack Oak chest of drawers - still about 3 coats of blue to go...

A white dressing table (will have pink and grey design on drawers)

A white framed chalk board

Not yet started are:
a heavily carved armoire -

and a lovely antique chest of drawers - I will paint it with a harlequin pattern on top.

....and I met a lady at the auction house last week who's GIVING me some furniture from her mother's deceased estate. How exciting. Picking it up next week.

I'd love to hear what projects you are working on.

cheers Fiona


  1. wow girl you are biz-ee! it will all look amazing I'm sure!
    have a wonderful weekend,

  2. Blimey, you are going to be busy, the paintbrush will just be a blur! Sounds like your stall is a success, great news! Cheers, Pete.

  3. can't wait to see them all done! quick question... have you tried tinted primer for the darker blue? i use it all the time with dark blues- then it takes about 2 coats of the tinted primer, and 2 coats of paint.

  4. Looks great, so lucky you have a friend to help. Sometimes I can get my son to do this kind of stuff, but he demands payment. Great score on the free stuff!

  5. You've got some amazing stuff there. Can't wait to see how it all turns out! You're garage looks very similar to mine.
    Hooray for freebies! :)
