Surface Treatment Workshop – Week 17

  1. Wow, Evelyn, this is gorgeous! Such a simple idea, but soooo effective. I adore the colours, too. Thank you for your visit – yes, the pantry is coming on fine! I’ve just blogged about today’s progress, and he should finish it tomorrow morning. Can’t wait to start using it now.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and observations...
