Something different....

I have always loved revamping things; is revamping a proper word? anyway whatever it is called I have always loved the idea of taking something old or just shabby and giving it a new lease of life so when I saw this child's wooden chair I couldn't resist buying it.

This is the chair after it had been sanded down

Then I gave it a coat of Cath Kidston paint in Linen

Then I did this to it

The train has been painted using more of the Cath Kidston paints in Blue and Red and some acrylics, I then painted the legs, the front two are Dk. Grey acrylic and the back two are Cath Kidston Red.

I intend to personalise this when it is bought with the child's name, I am really pleased with it, just got to sell it now and paint the other 3 chairs and the table I bought as well
