Works on wood

Little P made this beautiful cross entirely from scratch, She loves nothing more than hammering a few nails into wood. I really like what she did with the top part of this, water colours. Colour choice comes so naturally to kids, they rarely hesitate, I admire that!

Before & After

I picked up 4 of these chairs about 5 years ago from a Salvos,
they were $5.00 each. They are brilliantly made, I think by
Australian furniture maker Don Rex.
Finally got around to having them reupholstered,
the original mushroom pink velvet never really
did it for me. We got them done for about the same
cost as buying 4 new ones, actually probably worked out
a bit more, but ultimately much nicer than a modern repro.
