Bargain finds

 Ive made a start on a little table to match the chair and started the second chair.Still more sanding and varnishing to go but you get the idea.
 I have been searching locally for small trimmings :( they are few and far between , but today I hit upon the idea of using the feather type wool as fringing ok looks better when its smoothed out but Im happy at 50c a ball it isnt to bad ;)
I found these mats for noodle bowls at an asian groccer they are bamboo and simply joined together with nylon thread so easy to pull apart LOL Im sure they will be useful one day :)


  1. OOOMG I just LOVE your table - it's gorgeous!!!
    the feather wool is perfect too - would never have thought of that LOL - you really have a good eye for things. Love what you made too - so feminine!
    Looking forward to seeing what you do with the bamboo too - asian stores have some interesting bits!
    In awe of your furniture!!

  2. Te ha quedado preciosa esa mesa.
    Una gran idea lo de la lana.
    besitos ascension

  3. Me gusta como te ha quedado la mesa y la idea de la lana es muy buena. Con los palitos puedes hacer un montón de cosas, seguro que se te ocurre algo original. Un saludo, Eva
