Re upholstered chaise, with cushion, early birthday present from Granny, bless her.

The old tiles on the washstand. iam having a great deal of trouble blogging, my writing shifts and jumps and pictures disappear, why? So time consuming.....grrr

Clove studded orange, is it called a pomander? Hard on the fingertips to do!

My new VERY shabby chic, washstand Pete has fixed up for me. all that was left of it was the marble top which is broken in half. It was very stained but cleaned up quite well. Then there were the tiles and the little side pieces and the wooden frame around the tiles, the tiles weren't in the frame. It had the remains of white gloss paint on these bits. Pete made the cupboard and the top decorative piece, (which he copied the shape of from the side pieces) out of some macracarpa pine he had milled from our old fallen pines. On the washing machine beside you can see the rosy material I am going to make into curtains for it.
