well today seen as it was my last Wednesday off ( have I told you I'm back to work next week!!!!?) I thought I would take me and the baby off to the flea market, its only run on a Wednesday and Ive really got into going to it
didn't think I was going to come away with much really as I did get there quite late on and it was really busy so with having the buggy it was quite hard to get in there and have a good look
## although two old gentleman nearly had a fight with each other as one accused the other one of pushing him.. they looked like they were getting nearer to 80 if a day so it was slightly amusing to watch!! ##
when I happened to walk past a stall and this little thing caught my eye.. sat all on his own, I carried on walking but instantly started making it over in my head so back I went, paid for it and left it there until I'd had another look round
it was only a fiver as well so would have been rude to leave it!
i think it must be a sewing box of some kind as here's what it looks like inside,
it was quite heavy and I did have a buggy to push as well as get on and off the bus.. honestly as I was doing it i was thinking to myself "why didn't you just get a taxi!!"..
but then when I got off the bus, a lady was walking past and offered to carry it for me to the house, how nice was that at all so I really think I was meant to have it!
as it was a lovely sunny afternoon I got the baby fed and to sleep as quick as I could ( such a bad mother really!) and got to it outside..my other little boy was at the mother in laws so I had the time to myself to get on with it!
I already had the paint in and I used some left over wallpaper from my bedroom, so I just couldnt wait to start!
the paint dried really quick and I'd done 2 coats of emulsion and two coats of satinwood !!
I put it up in my bedroom before, I'm going to use it as a bedside table for now, its perfect for holding my big handbag which tends to get in the way
I want to line the inside of it and paint up the little wooden drawer, but time was pressing on so that is a little job for the future!!!
