It was a monster of a mansion, way too big for me to accommodate and the wrong scale. Shame, as it was a bargain and had loads of furniture with it. But a bargain isn't a bargain unless you need it, right? This year's mantra.
However, in the corner was this little gem. Needs some attention (who doesn't?) but at £15 it was coming home with me.
Until recently the big old dog bed cunningly covered up that concrete mess in the corner. It was here when we moved in, a patch up of the floor when a wall was moved. I haven't the heart to cover it up as it has paw-prints and a dog's name inscribed in it 'Judy 18-11-81'. A long-ago friend immortalised. I'll have to put a rug under there or something.
It's bare as I bought a smaller bed for the small now single dog, and at the same time a new cat bed- which I put under the table by the radiator. Which the dog took to sleeping in... So I moved the smaller dog bed under the table as well. There are now three beds under the table and the dog and cats pick a different one each time they go for a nap. There's not much room to get your feet under the table but aesthetically it's pleasingly tidy!
I feel an Annie Sloan session coming on, I still have loads of paint left from the dining room paint frenzy and it'll do nicely. A bit of filling is required on the scrapes and knocks (hence the price tag) but expect an after shot, of the photo variety, soon.
I'm also getting the paint stripper on the dolls' house today, I think that'll be by far the bigger challenge. Ironic given its size.
