So we have been really busy trying to get things organized and accumulate all the gear we will need. We have tried to keep costs low, so a lot of the gear we have purchased has been second hand or from thift stores. I did splurge a little though and buy a good quality hikers tent as well as a mini stove and good sleeping bag. I can't stand being cold at night.
I have managed to get a little bit of furniture done over the past few weeks though. Rather than do a separate posts, I am just going to showcase them together here.
First up are these neat little bongo-style side tables. They were not much to look at in the original state, but their bright new shade perks them up a bit!
Secondly, I used a vibrant shade of purple on this buffet. I never use purple, but I had done a French set for a friend in this colour and really liked it, so I thought I would put it to use a second time. It pulls a little blue in the pictures, but it is most definitely purple.
The oak grain is still visible through the paint, I love painting chunky oak pieces vibrant colours, they always turn out so great!
Right, I'm off to do more trip organizing, have a sunny day!
