I made a successful tender on this Queensize headboard yesterday. Couldn't believe my luck! (Kinda don't believe in luck so not sure why I use that phrase).
I go to the Tender Centre each week and basically I put really low dollars on anything and everything that catches my eye, not really expecting to have much success, so it's always a nice surprise to win something from time to time.
First up we had to get it home. We loaded up the trusty Daewoo. My seat was pushed so far forward my breath was condensing on the windscreen, and it was reclining in a less than 90 degree angle but comfort was not a priority, I just wanted to get it home!
Although I have an appreciation of art and the work that goes into creating a masterpiece, I have never been a huge fan of folk-art so had no qualms in sanding back the floral adornment in order to revive this beauty.
And here is the after...
I happen to quite like the crackle effect so was content to leave it as is.
After a coat of enamel Pebble Dash I highlighted with a lighter shade of grey.
I was intending to sell this piece, but I have fallen in love!
Trusting you are all enjoying the beginning of a new week.
Life's such a funny thing and can have us revelling in it's opportunities one minute and spinning our heads the next. So whatever you are dealing with at the moment, I hope you can take time to breathe and be thankful for small mercies and great blessings :o)
