Good morning and how are you this Monday morning?
Cloudy skies here in the north but there is blue behind, here's hoping the latter prevails today. Mind you it has definitely gone down a few notches in the temperature scales. For me a perfectly good excuse to stay in the warm and craft but I'm off to work with my cleaning head on.
Before I go I thought I'd share the finished palette trees that I challenged my hubby to recently.
Now I have the problem of which one do I like the best.
One tree has been left totally rustic and just waxed with a clear wax.
It is just over three foot tall with the star and I love the fact that all the imperfections in the wood and the bark are highlighted by the wax. Sorry not the best photographs as they were taken in the dark this morning.
The second has been painted with white chalk paint, then a dark wax added before polishing back, giving it a distressed feel about it.
The nature of the wood means that each tree will be slightly different. I love them both but can't make up my mind as to which one I really prefer.
I have now purchased some green chalk paint, that will be the next challenge set.
I should not give myself so much choice, as I can't make a decision to save my life!
Did you have a good weekend?
I had a crazy busy shift at work on Saturday, Christmas is coming!
This was followed by a relaxing evening in, crocheting and catching up with Strictly followed by a family movie night which ended up being a lot later than planned. With that in mind the FFF on Sunday ended up being a very chilled out, relaxing day at home with brunch and an afternoon of crocheting. Not a bad way to spend a wet, chilly Sunday afternoon.
That's all from me today, off to work I go.
I shall be back later with a cup of tea and will catch up with everything you have been up to over the weekend.
