My new house


Just a quick post this evening to show you my latest charity shop find. £4 snagged me this lovely wooden house, which is similar to those of Francesca and Nina and was probably last used to display thimbles (judging by the dust on it!). I can't decide whether or not to paint it, what do you think?

I love it just like that - no paint needed!

that's tough. love the natural wood look but a coat of paint might really make it special. I guess I'd say yes, find a fab paint and go for it!

oohhhh, you BITCH! we'd have had fisticuffs over this, i tell you now!!! :) no, i think i'd keep it natural.
you were SO being twittered about the other night - i twittered about how lovely your new pieces were, and someone re-twittered it, then there was quite a fight! alice won though and bought it, i'm just hoping to get one for christmas as i'm a tightarse, haha xxx

Noooo, don't paint it! If you want to play with colour 'wallpaper' a couple of sections with card inserts - easy to swap.

Love your blog. Alice (raspberry) sent me.

oh well done anna. we should start a flickr group! although i haven't had time to do anything with mine yet. think i will paint mine, yours is a nicer looking wood. x

Ok, I'm keeping it as is! In part due to laziness and in part due to the fear of doing something I can't undo, so yeah a mixture of healthy emotions there!
Thanks all, glad you likey :)
