Monday Makeover - Wooden Fireguard Part 1

Ok, so regular readers of the blog will know that I have recently confessed to turning into a junk junkie - buying all sorts of treasure from local charity shops and markets. Unfortunately, some of my treasure is in a less than shiny state and to the untrained eye might look a little more like trash...

Luckily, (most of the time) I am an enthusiastic, creative, optimist who likes to see the potential in bits of junk - however I often have lots of different projects on the go, and never quite seem to get round to finishing anything...

So, to encourage me to finish some of my projects and to share the amazing transformation from trash to treasure, I have decided to start a little Monday Makeover mini series. Every Monday I will share with you one of my items that is an up-cycling work-in-progress, adding a  new picture every Monday until it is finished!

And here to start us off is 'Wooden Fireguard' - Part 1

In this picture I have already lightly sanded the surface of the 'delightfully' painted wooden screen thinking it may help the new coats of paint stick to the surface of the wood. I could of course, have sanded the whole thing properly... but surely that's too much work for a bodger?

(Hoping I won't live to regret only doing half the job...)

Next Monday - 'Wooden Fireguard' - Part 2!


  1. I can't wait to see how this turns out. What a fabulous idea.


  2. I hate sanding too - it's the worst bit

  3. great idea, looking forward to seeing how this turns out! :)


Thanks for taking the time to stop and leave a comment!
