Playing with wood.

I've been busy over the past few days making more bits for the attic store room.   First of all, a basic table - nothing too exciting there!

Some luggage racks - easy peasy

and (a first for me) a fireplace.   As this is for a room of no importance whatsoever it was created  from various bits and pieces of wood already in the stash and painted black.   It was afterwards, when it was just standing there, I thought perhaps something else could be done to it.
so, out came my favourite Humbrol Metalcote paint (I love this stuff and it comes in black too!)
A coat of this and a quick buff and the fireplace now looks like this.   It wont really be seen that well once in place but I'll know!



  1. Hello Irene,
