Happy Valentines & beachy blues

Happy Valentines Day!
hope you all have a special one celebrating however you choose.
we don't make much of a fuss- i usually get flowers (and i just love receiving flowers!) and we have a nice dinner. Might have to buy the flowers on behalf of Mike this year as he's home sick!
The girls have spent hours making Valentine's cards and craft for their friends which is so sweet!

any hoo, onto furniture!
i found this fold up table at an op shop and thought it deserved a makeover in
the beachy look! i sealed with Zinsser (you can see it showing through where i have sanded)
and then painted with this gorgeous blue found on the mistint trolley at Bunnings.
i don't usually sand my pieces all over, but this table was asking for it!
Titantic ring found at the markets. Ceramic hanging shells were a gift
from a friend many years ago.
german vase, mason jar and wicker baskets.

folds up easily to store away.

1st day of supply teaching for me today! off to teach Prep and let Mike rest at home!
(note to self: buy flowers on way home!!)
