The most gorgeous bowl and a coffee table




















I have been doing more woodwork....today I made a coffee table for the living room....it took me all day, which is ridiculous. It might be a bit on the large side, but it is meant to be a coffee table made from an old piece of ironwork or something similar, so I think it would be biggish. The woodwork is always a struggle so I am happy it is standing up and holding together!!
















I have made some cushions for the green bench and I spent ages trying to upholster the lovely chair I got from Sylvia. I hope she doesn't mind....I had an old silk handkerchief that was just begging to be used in this room.

This stunning bowl is from Loredana Tonetti - it arrived today and it is STUNNING. Wow - it is just so beautiful. I couldn't bear to put it on the floor, so got working on the coffee table straight away!


There is still a lot of work to do in the living room - I haven't done curtains yet and have some other plans of things to make, but I like the way it is shaping up!!

It's a very nice table you've made, and I don't think it's too big. And the bowl is so adorable.

It's a lovely setting, and I don't think the table too big at all :)
