Daphne's Diary Paper Covered Small White Chairs

I found these small chairs, while out walking. They were thrown out for Council clean-up! I just couldn't leave them to be squashed by the truck so I picked them up and brought them home. My favourite magazine is Daphne's Diary and each issue has pretty papers to use on crafts. I went through my back issues and found exactly what I needed. For the seat of the chair, I used my flower punch and punched out heaps of paper flowers. I Mod Podged them onto the chair. The petal shape of the flowers made it easy to turn the edges in and give a neat finish. Even though I have put three focus flowers on the top, I am still undecided as to whether to leave them there or not......

Upcycled Glass Plate

Using a clear glass plate that I found at the op shop, I Mod Podged pretty fabric underneath the plate so the pattern would show through. It is now ready for some treats. To clean, just wipe the plate with a damp sponge. Too easy!

Stencilled Dressing Table ♥

I realised that I hadn't posted anything on my blog since April, 2016. I now use my Instagram account, linlovespaper, to post pictures of my crafts. Today, though, I thought I would share with you my dressing table that I stencilled many, many years ago. I used paints and it is still holding up very well.
