WOYWW Update ...


Quite a few people clocked the MDF pen holder pot I was painting last Wednesday, and several asked for an update ... so here's the finished set! A friend of mine is having a new craft room built and I'm so happy for her, and wanted to make her something pretty to put in it.

She told me that the walls will be painted Apricot, so I took this colour as my baseline and painted the MDF a warm shade of this. Then I added little touches of clover pink, as in the patterned paper I used, which also covered a little tin to keep bits and bobs in. Hope she likes it, and if you've guessed who she is, PLEASE don't say anything .....!!
