Up cycling-something new to try

I have always enjoyed paint effects but in relation to my dollhouse and miniature hobby however time to try on a regular scale. My friend Sharon got me very interested in some of the projects she has done and introduced me to Annie Sloan paint. Then my husband rescued two old chairs from going to the dump so my mind started working over time and I paid a vist to Doris and Jeannies on the Belmont Rd.
I eventually got the paint home after a little tumble where it fell out of my bag and started to leak over the street.I rushed to save it covering my hands in old white chalk paint in the process. I then had to flag down a motorbike cyclists to rescue my baby wipes from the care as obviously I couldn't touch anything. I am hoping the project will be easier. I do have a lot of work to do on removing the old paint and rust so have other plans in between. I never was one for doing only one thing at once.
This stool was from an old school science lab so will see what I can do with it and the bedside locker below has had a bit of a rough time of it as well.
Thankfully the weather is good so I am off outside with my wire brush apron and paint. If the weather changes I will return to my quilting indoors.
