Next we walked down Monmouth St and found the Orla Kiely shop. I was so excited to have a look round but found it a bit disappointing. Way overpriced, and nothing really that I could afford. I am lucky that Russell bought me lots of nice Orla Kiely things for Christmas including a pen, magazine file, soap, phone cover, mug, large A4 notebook. Last Christmas (2011) Russell's parents bought me lovely white stem pattern bedding, and it took me a year to actually put it on the bed!! I must stop saving things that are special, and should just get the pleasure out of them.

Promised you I would show you the chest of drawers for the spare room when I finished it, so here it is. I am not sure about the mirror yet? Might paint it, but I am really pleased with how the furniture looks.

|£5.50 chair from ebay|
Won this nice chair on ebay today for £5.50, and will pick up locally this week. I might try my hand at reupholstering the seat! I am sure there are plenty of "How to.." guides on youtube :0)
I have a lovely piece of material I bought about 20yrs ago at a market and will paint the chair in a coordinating colour. The material is a gold coloured Rennie Mackintosh design and I think it would be perfect for this.......I just have to find it!!!!
Going to have a nice soak in a big bubble bath now and hopefully my legs wont be aching as much tomorrow! Just goes to show me how unfit I am!
Have a great week, and hopefully I will have some more paint transformations to show you next weekend!
