Drum roll please!

So here the shelf is, All finished!
I didn't get to take a fancy photo, with books, vases and flowers, cos I was in a rush to get it in the study as we where having friends over for a BBQ and they where due any second.
But I'm pretty happy how it turned out!
So my next projects are,
Updating my Grandpa's Grandfather clock, I think a little paint will change it completely, and also show off the detail in the glass of the birds.

Painting this Chandelier I scored for free! weeeeee

Turning a frame I got at the op shop into a trendy mirror with hints of damasked pattern coming through. This is going to be a first try so hopefully it turns out OK.

Fixing a little colonial wooden style coffee table I scored for $5.

Figuring out what to do with this box.

Turning a dresser I hopefully win on Ebay tonight into an entertainment unit.
Finding a roll top desk to make over.
I'm going to be busy for a while!


  1. The shelf looks great! I just picked up some mod podge for a new project, how did you like working with it? Do you think fabric or paper would be easier to work with?

  2. I think Fabric might be a bit easier, I had a massive problem with air bubbles in the paper, even after I lashed out and brought a roller. I'll be doing fabic next time.

  3. I *love* how the shelf turned out! I'm inspired by the patterned paper you used. I have a funky little asymmetrical shelf I picked up a few weeks ago, and have been wondering what to do with it...might have to try my hand at modge-podging. :)

  4. Great job!! Free chandy?! I am jealous!
