My Favourite Makeover So Far

Am really in the swing of this painting lark now.  Garden looks like an artists studio and my hair has taken on a nice grey tinge from all the sanding, thankfully nobody has knocked at my door as I fear they would have run off screaming!

Hmm must clean patio this weekend before the hosepipe ban next week.

This little mannequin came home with me last summer from a car boot sale.  I wasn't loving the outfit though.

Coat of grey applied first, can you see the theme I'm building here.

Here she is in her new outfit.  Much more feminine. 

I only painted a top coat of white onto the body and left the stand in the grey.  Did some light sanding using one of those foam sanding sheets which are washable and have to say they are brilliant.  Because they are so soft and pliable you can easily get into all the little crevices and details of an object.  Your fingers don't take such a bashing either.  Really love how she turned out and she goes beautifully with the newly made over coffee table.  Photo frame in the background is from Ikea in case you were wondering.

Till next time.
