Decoupage Chair

What do you think of this...

Its a decoupage chair that I have been working on over the last week. I don't know where to put it though!

 It was a dark oak farm house chair. I got 6 of them off ebay for a tenner. One is pink, one is duck egg and I did a patchwork decouage one this week. It took a while, and I roped my sister into cutting the paper for me. Its wrapping paper that I used. I don't think I let it dry out long enough and I have a couple of tiny gaps showing the dark wood. It's not perfect but looks a lot better than dark wood.

 This was last week when all the paper was wet with all the glue. All my squares are lined up, dvd's and tea!!

We have had some lovely weather this week, and I have been off. I gave myself 2 weeks off to celebrate my birthday, which was on Tuesday. To be honest it was the best present I got. My OH wasn't very imaginative. The same Clinque goodies as last year, and Christmas, a cake decoration set- which I have, and a £50 voucher for Top  I was 32 I don't shop in Top Shop! Luckily my SIL got me a lovely Laura Ashley picture frame, & my sister got me a decorative birdcage & doorstop. I got money from everyone else, which I am going to put towards some new lenses for my camera.

Here is my fave shot of H when we enjoyed the sun on Monday.

Happy Spring to you all. It's been a long time coming!

Oh wow, love the chair. This is the second decoupaged chair I've seen, the first being Scarlett's. I really must get my finger out and get doing something similar. I started collecting flower catalogues, would you believe, in order to do one of our chairs but I've never got round to it!

Love your green collection in a previous post.

That looks fab - you certainly can't see any dark patches from your photos. I saw Scarlett's too and am now feeling distinctly underwhelmed with the chair I'm sitting on at the moment!

That picture of your boy is gorgeous, he's obviously loving the sun - happy Spring indeed.

Anyway, I am another vintage, thrifting, crafting and carbooting type so I thought I'd say hi, and am now following your blog
