A couple more bids on items in the auction today!  Check out BBC 2's Antiques Road Trip on iplayer.  Today's episode (March 20th) started in Cullen and ended in John Milne Auction Rooms in Aberdeen!  The cottage we are renting in the Easter holidays appears when the presenters are driving away from the beach!

This weather has been great!  I've had some of my furniture out in the garden being power-washed, sanded and painted.  I'm very pleased with the paint results using my new paint spray machine.   Glad I was outside, even with a large plastic sheet the grass is still white!  I've a chest of drawers and a chair sanded ready to paint too.  Back to work tomorrow so I won't get much more done this week.
Shabby wicker chairs from the auction

Now Shabby Chic!

Forgot to take a before photo but it was pine.  Do you recognise it Louise?!
