WhatNot

These little whatnots are very handy pieces to have around the house for all your china and bits and pieces. After I started painting this I thought I was mad as it took ages to get into those tight corners and paint all that turned timber. But I persevered and was so glad that I did.  Worst part is I bought another smaller one so will have to tackle that as well.

The gorgeous bedroom chair was a market find from last week.

What a cute piece. I am a sucker for turned wood piece but yes they are a challenge to paint! Love the chair too:)

Looks fantastic Sandy! You could make anything look good tho'. Loved your last post re the bedside tables too - I have just bought a pair that I blogged about here http://thepapertreedesign.blogspot.com/2010/08/vinnies-finds.html
I was going to change the handles, but I think I'll leave them now as yours look beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration. Michelle

You are more patient than me! I have a large one and got fed up with all the work and have started dismantling it to use for "Parts". The spindles will be candlesticks, the gingerbread will serve as embellishments on another piece and the rest will be at the street corner on Friday. Looks great! Sue @awellovedhome.com

Gosh I wish I could find some places here on the gold coast to pick up some small bits and pieces especially old victorian buttons and things(: And I want that mannequin in a few posts back LOL

It's very cute! The chair (love it) and the shelves look like they were made to sit next to each other, too.

I'm so glad to see the painted what-not. I have my mum's sitting in the garage waiting for me to tackle. I think the fiddly bits were giving me an excuse to avoid starting.
Thanks for the encouragement!
