My latest up-cycling project!
Found this beautiful old chair being thrown away.
So I rescued it!
Cleaned it up,
Sanded it down,
and gave it a new lick of paint!
I love up-cycling, as I got to give an old chair, a second life.
You never know the history of something, and you could save it from being thrown to scrap. And I have a beautiful chair for my dressing table now too!
I love the carved detailing on the legs, by doing a light coat of white on top, and leaving the dark wood in the grooves brought the carving out in its full glory!
And, it fits perfectly with my up-cycled dressing table!

Here is a collection of some of my favourite mythical creatures from an adorable little book I was given for my Birthday a few years ago
There are full pictures separately, with descriptions of the myths surrounding each creature
Amon is a Marquis, in Hell, controlling 40 legions of spirits. He can shape-shift from a man in a ravens head and dogs teeth, to a fire-breathing wolf with a serpents tail.
Amon has the powers of foresite into the future and reconciling differences between friends.
The Furtur is a Great Earl of Hell and had 26 Legions of Demons at his bidding
His name is decended from ‘Furcifer’ which is Latin for trickster or scoundrel
He relies on lieing, but can be forced to tell the truth if trapped in a magic triangle
