I have made pelmets for the windows using the same fabric as the lounge and there was enough to make a curtain, giving the kitchen a very old fashioned feel.
The pictures have been hung on the wall and look quite striking.
The tray bought from the Charity shop has been painted, stencilled and waxed to age it. Along with a couple of tea towels made.
All in all it has turned out pretty much as I had envisaged. The paint takes on a different hue at different times of the day going from grey to lilac depending on the light.
Another storm hit last night with Southerly winds so we are hunkering down by the stove today, enjoying each others company and making plans for the dream garden. Gerard is having a flare up of his Rheumatoid Arthritis and is in a lot of pain so keeping warm and as comfortable as possible is the plan for today. Sweet potato and red pepper soup is all ready for lunch with some cream crackers.
See you soon.
