In my last house I had a whole work room to myself and I spread out all over the place. This house is considerably smaller and I only have half a room which I share with hubby. The only problem is that I still try and cram as much stuff into the small space as I did in the large......

You might remember in a previous blog I had picked up a set of shelves that I was going to paint and put up in my workroom. Today was the day I had set aside for them and I set too this morning with sandpaper and cloth rubbing them down. It was such a nice day I decided to work in the garden.

Once sanded down I set too painting them, please don’t look too closely as it is not a brilliant paint job but none the less I think they look better painted than they did wood.

Finally painted I stood over hubby until he got out his spirit level and put them up for me. Now I must try and not overfill them although hubby thinks that they won’t stay looking so neat for too long and I hate to say it but he is probably right.


  1. The shelves look lovely Deb, I am sure they will soon be crammed with bits and pieces though !

  2. they look just gorgeous to me and I wish I had them here- just what I could do with- except they'd be even MORE crammed full of bits'n'bobs!

  3. Isn't it so satisfying giving a piece of old brown firewood a new lease of life with just a coat of paint and some elbow grease? You go ahead and cram it with whatever you like ... you deserve it! Looks fab x

  4. They look great Deb! I love over filling shelves!


I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings and for your comments they are much appreciated.
