One ugly picture

Take one ugly faded picture (and cups of tea to help brain cope)..... 

......with very ornate frame bought cheaply at a carboot sale 

Add strange floral ornaments with flat back

Add drinking straws from fast food place
Stick flowers on ugly picture and add straws as stems
Hide joints with filler of your choice (I used No More Nails for filing and gluing)
Paint all of it white (or any colour you like) 
I undercoated twice and then finished off with White High Gloss
Let it all dry then hang on wall in contrasting colour

Beautiful unique art for very little cost and effort!

Nest of tables

The first project in a long time is a nest of three very tired tables that were given a new lease of life with a lick of paint.

They went from this.... this!

They look so much better and help brighten up my recently decorated lounge.
