It's so nice to be back and I am so glad you enjoyed the guest posts.Stanley really thinks he runs the place now,Lily has been so encouraged that we have a mini softie production line and Master Card is keeping his side of the bargain!
I have been steadily working through my 'to-do' list all through the summer holidays.Things move much more slowly with 4 children in tow but we have made some progress.One of the jobs was to find a desk for Maisie.After numerous fruitless trips to various charity shops I fell back on old IKEA.
We picked up a basic table and Maisie painted the legs with some left over paint.I covered the top with a piece of Lene Bjerre oilcloth, that used to be our table cloth.Following Samantha's advice we just staple gunned it to the underside of the top so it's easy to replace when needed.We also got a set of drawers and voila!
A perfect work space for my little high schooler and just in time for her first piece of homework! The chair needs another coat of Caths red and the shelves a few more treasures.
See that beautiful little girl? One of Maisies first carboot treasures.I took Lily and Maisie to their first car boot during the hols and they took to it like ducks to water.Total pros, haggling like mad and getting freebies left right and centre.I was so proud!
