5 drawer beachy chest in seafoam blue

Today I have finished a retro chest of drawers in the seafoam blue shade but it could easily pass for duck egg :) I have stripped and waxed the drawers for a beachy raw look and added jute knobs (I love these pulls, they make a fancy piece casual and add something extra special to square pieces!)
Perfect in many rooms in the house - hallway, nursery, bedrooms? The bottom, side edges are a little frayed but I have used the paint and sanding methods to work them into the  rustic look :)

The measurements are 73w 34d 87h.

Chippy yellow junior chair

Here are some pictures of the vintage jarrah highchair that I found in an antique store a couple of weeks ago. A really lovely piece, but the tray section was quite dated and not functioning brilliantly, so I decided to just take that piece off and turn this into a junior chair. 
It has obviously had many lives and served several generations, as there were a good few layers of varnish built up on the piece. I thought a bright coat of paint and a very chippy look would suit it well. Its very solid, but definitely rustic with bags of character!
So now we have a junior chair that fits up tight to a dining table very well, to keep those kids that think they're older than they are in one place, whilst you cram as much food into their little bodies as possible!

In the dog house!

Here's a fun piece that I painted up this afternoon. I found this kennel for sale and thought it had potential with a little colour - who says only us humans get to live in stylish pads? My pooch of choice (4 years, happy to have a nose painted on and stick plastic bone in his mouth.....easily fits in door etc) did a great job......
A lovely cute home for a fury family member, clean and solid in grey & antique white...
  Then we all want a go....!
