Resolutions?

I'm not a New Year Resolutions type of girl. Instead, what I like to do is set myself tasks...not to lose weight or get fit etc. I like to give myself projects to achieve and my projects this year are more renovations and refurbishments of some old furniture.

So on that note, I'd like to introduce you to my latest footpath find.....

Taa Daa.....




It was sitting all by it's lonesome a few houses down from Number 10, so MONT went and got it for me.




Not sure how I plan to tackle it yet because the top is a laminate and after peeling a bit of it off, it was pretty rough underneath...even too rough (methinks) for a heavy sand and a coat of white paint.



Anyhooo we'll see. It will be sanded back, given a good undercoat and maybe the top will have to be replaced, which should be pretty easy seeing those curly corner thingies are screwed on.

It's a strange little piece, but will look better with a nice coat of paint... or three...

Luckily I took the photos of this a couple of days before our cameras were "pinched".

We're still on holidays, so Amanda, I have not forgotten that you gave me an award a few days back ... I've just been a bit distracted with our episode at home and now being at the beach.
