I have had these two lovely American pin up prints for ages and I have finally found a couple of gilt type frames for them in a charity shop. I don't usually go for fancy frames but I think these look right for such glamorous ladies. These are now ready to be hung in a little spot I saved for them on the landing.
I found the old glass sweet jar and apothecary jar at a boot sale and gave them both a good clean. I had some old 1940s American decals and used these to decorate them. I love the yachts and think the apothecary jar would look lovely in a bathroom, holding bath oil.
The little bookcase was stained with dark varnish and it took a good coat of primer and a couple of coats of Farrow and Ball's Pointing to freshen it up. I used the same on the heavy pine cupboard I had had stored in the cellar for some time. I used the Cath Kidston Bluebell drawer liners I found a few months ago in a charity shop to line the shelves. The shelves will be used for display purposes for the new venture Deb and I are planning. I am going to keep the little cupboard to use as bedside table.
