Mother's Day and the Tale of the Little Wicker Side table

Hi there coastal lovelies!

My boys :)

I hope everyone had a fab Mother's Day, and because I'm a mum it's taken me a few days to get this post out!

I enjoyed pancakes for brekkie, not made by me, received 2 gorgeous cards and a 'jar of love' filled with cute little notes and "to be shared" lollies!

We took a leisurely drive down the coast, which was lovely, very windy and a little chilly but lovely.   Stopping at Stanwell Tops, and on to Thirroul for fish n chips and a catch up with some dear friends.  Then Nachos for dinner, again not made by me!

All in all a pretty high calorific day but I figure Mother's Day is a free pass and any calories consumed don't count!

Now Sharing the tale of the little wicker side table....

This little guy had seen certainly seen better days, most people would probably pass him by, but I thought I'd try to save him.
Top before

Firstly a good scrubbing was in order, my littlest man helped with this (you can just see him in the background!). Warm soapy water with some disinfectant.

Top After

Then I made a mix of paint with some water and layered on various shades of grey and some white for the final coat

....and here he is rocking his new 'weathered coastal' look ;)

And the little Weathered wicker side table  met some lovely magazines and lived happily ever after... the end.

Enjoy the down hill run to the weekend ;)
