A Little Green

Good afternoon everybody! I'm still here and despite the sore fat knees I've ditched the crutches and the walking stick and am able to get around a bit on my own. I've also managed to finish a few things for my daughter's bedroom. I bought these bedside tables about a year ago. Although the natural timber was a lovely tone and colour, it didn't go with what I wanted for her room.


I know they're beautiful so please don't hate me for painting them.  But with the dresser I'm going to put in Afton's room it would have ended up a wood medley.  I also found this chair by the side of the road which was in good condition apart from looking a little sad...


Here they all are freshened up with a lick of soft mint green paint and some light distressing...



The fabric on the chair matches the French memo board I made for her room.



Unfortunately the photos don't do the colour justice as it is a lot more greener up close.  I am not showing these in her actual bedroom as we still have a lot of work to do in there, e.g. re-line walls, rip up carpet, polish floorboards and paint.

This is the dresser that I will also be putting in her room (UNPAINTED) once it's all finished...



What a beauty eh?  I scored this for $40 at the auctions!  Yay for me!

With Christmas Day approaching and me hosting, Mr T and I got stuck into the garage and had a big clean out (we're having a typical Aussie Christmas Day outside).  It looks so neat and tidy now and he can finally fit his scooter in.  With my knee in bad shape I have decided I need to simplify things a little and have listed a few pieces on eBay that I just don't think I'll get around to finishing anytime soon.  People keep asking me if I want to be bothered continuing with my furniture due to my arthritis but I'm not giving up yet people!  After the clear out yesterday I discovered some things I can't wait to get my hands on and it has given me a boost of renewed energy.

Hope you all have a terrific week.

So glad you are doing better! Those are gorgeous stands, and I love the color. Green is my favorite, I never tire it. Great find on the chair,and it is so pretty now, and the dresser is fabulous, can't see the room all done. Hope you continue to improve.
