Projects, projects, projects
I don't know about you but I always seem to have heaps of projects on the go which I inadvertently leave half completed ('I mean they're almost finished!') or projects I intend doing but never do.
I keep pretending I just don't have time because of my job and busy social life outside of it but I know I do really! Time management.
The top little side table with cupboard I found while driving through a neighbouring suburb one day headed for brunch but a lady was having a little garrage sale so I put on the brakes and stepped over to have a little look. Pure curbside thrift, it cost $20. I'm planning on painting it white as it's currently a deep cream which isn't really matching anything else right now. I took this snap when we first got it, you can see the grey felt under the legs protecting the floor! They have been replaced but that's all so far..
The victorian-style side table I picked up ages ago from Gumtree for the same cost. (Anyone remember me mentioning it here?) It was a bit scratched on the surface but I didn't care as I had a plan. This is one of my half completed projects as I've sanded it back and put on an under coat and one coat of white paint - it looks almost completed...in low lighting...
Hmmm are you like me or are you better organised?
