Shabby - well it will be

Another start to another week and it has been a very early one today.  I was up at 5 as I just couldnt sleep, even though I am so tired.

I am going to be having a potter around the house today and catch up with a few chores with Christiana, when she gets up.  There is no reason for her to be up before 10 and who knows, she may decide to have a pj day.

Here is the start of the dresser that I have begun to shabby up.  I find that doing this is very relaxing and  I get a lot of pleasure out of the end result, even if it does take a week or two.
This is what I have started with, sorry that the photo is a bit dark, as you know I am no photographer.

I have used sugar soap to wash the top 6 times and yaks, this is the colour of the water.
This wonderful piece of furniture has got years and years of wax and polish on it so it has to be cleaned first.  I expect it to be going a creamy vintagy colour once I start.  

Here is a Christmas card that I sat and  made on Friday evening with a wonderful bunch of ladies.

It has crystal effects all over it to make it shiney.  I loved doing this and will be making quite a few more.

Thanks for having a read and have a wonderful day, whatever you are up to.
