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!
