Remember this entry hall project started back in September? It's been finished for a couple of weeks - there's a new blue and cream rug, I changed the picture in the far wall (a replica of a Gaugin painted by myself ages ago) and the mirror went from being hung vertically to horizontally.

And what did I do with this little telephone seat? It's being converted into a coffee table for the lounge - I will show you as soon as it's painted...

Just outside the front door I hung the little porcelain name plate that I bought at a fair in Sintra when we went to Portugal in March. It was quite unexpected when I found one with our family name.
In our bedroom, this picture frame to the right of the mirror was spray painted (it was the same colour as the mirror before) and I screwed a lot of cup hooks and my long necklaces now have more room. They had all been hanging in the smaller frame to the left (which was originally green). So the left one holds the shorter necklaces, the one to the right holds the longer necklaces.
As you can see I'm a big fan of necklaces in all colours of the rainbow! I hardly ever leave home without a necklace that matches my outfit...

The rest of the cane furniture has been re-varnished and is ready for summer.
The orange/white cushions were all sewed by me and my daughter in law just before last Christmas.

Our former barbecue was dismantled and thrown out during verge collection in September, I today I varnished it and my husband will have to put a top over it so it will serve as a side table next to our new charcoal barbecue. I'll show it again when it's ready!

Another job which I did today was to dismantle my husband's desk which I want to paint in white.
Right now it's all been sanded and is ready to be spray painted with the spray gun tomorrow,if it's not too windy ... It will be white to go with the new colour scheme in the third bedroom/guest room.
I had thought of buying a new Ikea desk, but why spend money when we had a perfectly good desk at home?
