For a change




For a change I have been doing up a frame for my ribbons that my hubby made for me. At first thought I thought that I would leave it in its natural colour but then I found that the wood was not smooth and had a lot of splinters. Since I cannot sand because the dust affects my sinuses and so does my hubby i decided the next best thing to do is decoupage it. So this is what I have been doing. It is taking ages as I have to do it in stages for it to dry. Specially around the hooks it is fiddly. Then I think I will end up doing the same to the rollers too if I find it is too plain. We shall see.

    1. Thank you Patricia. It is good to see you back to blogging too. Once when I was shopping for a gift I came across your sweet little doll in the toy shop. I was delighted to see her in person. Our paths may have crossed in the departmental store as well who knows😄😄

  3. Very thoughtful of your husband to build you a ribbon rack. Lovely decoupage and I'm sure you'll be hanging beautiful ribbons once it dries.

  4. Shashi,... why couldn't you have just taken those hooks out while doing that? You could just find the hole again once decoupage was is place and screwed them back in? ... oh, my, you went to a lot of fiddling with it...

    hugs, V>
