Our little girl had her adenoids out this morning. Such a brave patient. I found it quite distressing as she was coming out of the anaesthetic initially, but she soon calmed down and fell back asleep. We're back home now and she's snuggled up in bed with her daddy, both fast asleep.
Before the surgery - so brave
and after still in recovery and all drugged.
She's normally such a happy thing that it was difficult to see her like this below.
Thank goodness that this was minor, routine surgery. I don't know how parents cope seeing their kids seriously ill.
One project I was hoping to finish was this French Provincial Louis chair below. I bought it from a guy who was planning on restoring 11 of them. This one he'd painted in a white oil paint and then streaked over grey oil paint. The result from a distance looked okay but up close was actually just a dirty mess.
I sanded the chair back and painted it a French blue and then a limed white. The upholstery job was quite good so I decided to leave it but he hadn't put any trim on. As he never gave me any material when I bought the chair, I couldn't make any piping. Instead I used some white gimp braid I had at home. Unfortunately I didn't check my quantities and I only had enough for the base of the chair. When I went to Spotlight to buy another packet I found out that this one has been discontinued.
So what I was hoping would be a quick project is now more complicated. I will probably just pull off what I have done and replace it all with a different sort of braid. Very frustrating.
And here is a before shot of a cabinet I'll be painting tomorrow as I'll be home with my daughter as she recovers. I'm debating turquoise but will probably end up going white on this one. The handles definitely will get replaced!
I'll be posting more often in the next few weeks. I've just finished quite a major piece of work for some business clients and I don't have much on that horizon which is fine by me; and will give me time and energy to focus on the furniture front!
Here's to a speedy recovery for my little one.
