Farewell Cardboard Box


The drawers are finished and I finally have a bedside table again..... the cardboard box has been banished from my bedroom forever

I even managed to make the bed thismorning (with the cat still asleep in the middle).

The colour isn't exactly what it should be, but somebody picked up the wrong stain from the shelf at Bunnings. It was supposed to be more dark brown and less red, but it still looks good.

The funniest thing is that when we moved the huge cardboard box out lastnight (which had been labelled Hats and Scarves), and opened it, we found that it was actually full of fabric!

I have sooooo much fabric that I didn't even miss an entire box full........ and now I need to find room to unpack it. What a problem to have....oh dear!

Yay for the bedside table. It looks great. I can't believe you found another box of fabric. My goodness. It's going to be fun to get it all organised one day. I'll have to come and work my organisational magic.

And I love your bedhead. mmm.

Damn that person who picked the wrong stain though. Blame the Bunnings shop lights.

Ps. I too love the handles and the bed head.

Had to have a real chuckle at you finding more fabrics.... that's hilarious! I'm very in love with the drawer handles too. Noice.

Oh, to have the time to make something lovely like that! It's quite beautiful Cam, sort of rustic and charming. U're a Jack of all trades!

Ooh, fabric, yum! The table looks great, what a score from Salvo's! I love the comment from the cat, mine sometimes sleeps under the doona all day. I go to lay on my bed- oops! I also throw the doona over the top of her haha.

Great job on the bedside table. And I just love your bedspread. Hooray for lost and found fabric :) It's like finding money in a pocket of an old winter coat.

It looks brilliant! never mind the wrong stain, it looks fab. Clever, clever. I am all for buying second hand instead of new.

Love love love that bedside table! I had the same problem with a coffee table I repainted, still it came out ok but wasn't quite what I imagined.....I blame the salemans not knowing chocolate brown from rusty brown!
