Thrifty DIY roundup

Just a few things I’ve been up to this summer.  

  
I’ve loved having a garden for the first time this year. I’ve harvested the lavender and am planning on making some lovely gifts with my spoils. 

  I’ve finally finished my dining chairs. They are a hand-me-down from my auntie. The chairs have seen many layers of paint in the past! I used colours inspired by our -eclectic- dining room. A red sofa, yellow accessories and purple table mats to name a few….

I gave the chairs a good rub down with sandpaper and slapped on a few coats. I used discounted odd pots of paint from Homebase, including Matt emulsion. Yes, it will probably chip. I sprayed the chairs with a few coats of clear laquer to protect them šŸ˜‰  
Lastly, a super quick collaged birthday card made using metallic scraps of paper.
