Lovely lavender and a piece of wrapping paper
Yesterday I picked a posy of lavender to stand beside my bed. It looked really pretty in the little glass bottle (upcycled of course). Well. for as long as I can remember I have wanted to paint my bedside cabinets but Tony has said that he will sand them down... I am talking many many years here. I very much doubt that they will ever get sanded unless I do them myself. Unfortunately this means that they have looked really shabby and yucky. Last night I took a roll of wrapping paper and simply cut it to size and sellotaped it to the top of the cabinets and the chest of drawers... I told Tony that he would need to be a bit careful how he places things on there or it will tear. Guess what he said????? That looks nice, why don't you decoupage it on and varnish over it.... grrrrrrrr... :-) In truth I wouldn't want this particular paper as a permanent thing but it does mean that I can now look for a one that I would like to have.
