Up cycling....

Evening all, just a quick post to show you what I've been busy with this week, along with three more commissions.
We've had the builders in recently and have changed the use of two rooms and the new decor of the spare bedroom did not suit the orange pine furniture that we had so.........

                    Before


After



DIY knob holder!


I've also completed the bed, shoe cabinet and mirrors.
I used Annie Sloan paint which covers brilliantly and I've still got a quarter of my original 1 litre tin left! 
Finally I created a scrapbook page of Charlie that I'm going to frame:



Hopefully I'll have some cards to show you soon :0)

Great project, Val - what a difference!
Thank you so much for the information about the mini album closure! I couldn´t see it clearly on the picture, but now I understand. Thank you! Sorry for not saying thank you immediately - lot of things are going on right now - I´m not very often in front of my computer - it´s gardening season! And I have 3 new raised beds in the garden - so excited about them! Vegetables grow so much better in there!
Hope, you´re fine! Have a nice evening,
Uli
PS: Love your scrapbook layout!
