Challenge; Detention - WIP
So… I started this project in July… I got the curtain rail up and 2 shelves, but the shelves were harder than I thought (getting things level and holding them there to mark/attach single handed!) So I gave up before doing the final shelf (the prospect of having to add wanting to get equal spacing to the first pair, as one extra layer of faff, put me off). Buuuuut I have a new friend coming over on Monday and they’re an interior designer so I wanted to get this done at last! Big girl pants on, drill out, and I’ve finally finished my kitchen.
Challenge: Head Feb
Project: watercolour frame
So… this was defintly a valentines present to myself. A while ago I commissioned an artist to paint Tom and I on our boat, and since I got the piece I have been wondering how to frame it until I got the idea to use the same oak as we used to trim the boat. Unfortunately I had left the bits of left off on the boat when I sold it (in case new owner wanted to add to what we had done) but we brought it from a friend of ours who owns a forest and sells wood - he was able to prepare me some as similar as possible. I used it to make this very simple frame and a local place made the mat and got the glass for me.
