August is here…

I am astounded that August is already upon us…4 months to Christmas and the end of the year!! Where has 2014 gone???Its scary how the time flies-we have just celebrated the Eid Al Fitr ┬áholiday,which marks the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan and I took three wonderful days off to relax and recharge for the next few months which are going to be really busy.

We are busy with furniture refurbishments for a number of clients who have left for the summer and while they are away, we will be painting, sanding and distressing their furniture . When they get back, they will walk into a totally new look for their homes, I hope!I forgot to take before photos so I will have to show you the finished pieces as soon as we are done with them all.

We also have some very interesting finishes on designer planters and pots for a hotel project which I will be starting next week…this is something out of the ordinary and quite a challenge, so I am looking forward to it. I will have some photos to share of those as well.
