Yesterday some furniture i ordered arrived. Altogether i orderd 5 tables, 8 wall shelves, 6 sheving units, and 2 dressers for my work. Plus a little rustic bench for my witches house.
I now have quite a bit of furniture to fill and plan on them all being for witches and wizards.
The shelving units cames as they are and have been made from old cedar wood and waxed. They smell lovely... lol.
The others came as bare wood. Because i didn't have any stains or wax i dyed them with ink and although funny i buffed them up with baby oil. These smell lovely too!
They look similar to the shelving units that have been waxed.
Sometimes it's hard to know what people want so if anyone has ideas what type of tables or shelves i should make it would be most welcome.
I'm thinking a botanical table for one, but past that my mind has gone blank.
Also in the past i've used acrylic paint for my furniture but i'd like to start waxing them so they look like the shelving units. I really don't know what product to use or how to go about this. If anyone knows it would be great to find out how this is done.
I've left the other tables, shelves and dressers bare until i find what product to use.
I'm quite pleased today. No longer do i have to use the laptop which i hate. My husband took my comp to work yesterday and his work friends sorted it all out. It's as good as new and loving a bigger screen. A big screen is essential when your as blind as a bat.
Then i also noticed my blog is so different to everyone elses because all the text and stuff are massive. I think i'll have to go and sort this out and bring it back down in size. So apologies everything has been so big while i was using the tiny laptop.
