Look, it's a Nook!

Just a little nook look today. (Nook is one of those words where the more you say it the weirder it sounds - hmmm weirder, that sounds weird too. Sorry, bit tired today)

The chair is one of our dining chairs that I am STILL in the process of reupholstering. I need to add the shiny chrome studs and do something to the gold caps on the base of the legs. I used grey vinyl to cover them as it will be more practical than fabric. Thanks to Sandy at The Shabby Cottage for painting these 6 chairs for me.
I got the black frames for a song at Spotlight and painted the letters, then backed them with grey card.
I love the 2 wee light grey jars on the table. They look like miniature ginger jars.

Thanks Ange! I'll try to get a closer "close up" from her work. I really like her work and I'll tell her for sure. She'll be so proud to hear someone on the other side of the world said that! Have a wonderful week!
