pretty ugly hey?
Well my little brain got to thinking that if I (meaning the kids would do most of the work) could just sand off all that horrible varnish, and then just give it a few licks of clear vanish then maybe we would have ourself the beginnings of a play kitchen!
Despite the boys best efforts we couldn't get all of the awful varnish off and underneath what we did manage to remove, was a sort of unattractive plywood.
Plan B - we paint it!
Natalie, s.i.l, also brought over a basket of polystyrene fruit, which I'm sure the dog will chew to bits in the near future, but it will do just nicely until I have knitted up some more fruit and veggies.
Linking up with Linda this week for Creative Friday, and if my memory serves my correctly, Linda posted a knitting pattern for an apple only very recently, which I'm sure will go very nicely in our wee kitchen. The aubergine comes from Craft Bits and the muffins from Womans Weekly Knitting and Crochet special April/May 2011.
Have a lovely weekend everybody.
Just a word to Richard's Uncle Guy, should he be reading this - I'm sorry to say such mean things about your old student desk! hope you don't mind it's new lease of life.
