The three furniture packs which I ordered arrived very quickly, actually in three days by courier, and once again they were very well packed (twice in bubble wrap) so there was no chance of breakage.
I cannot tell you how happy I am to be dealing with an Australian company that provides such good service. The three kits only came to AU$63.80 including the shipping cost . . . I am very impressed. :)
After gluing them together, I gave them their first two coats of white paint. One tiny drawer was missing a side piece, so I emailed them. They were so apologetic and posted one to me the same day.
You can see the sofa from Part 1 in the background, still waiting for cushions. Next, I painted them all grey and ended up giving the couch another coat of grey, as the second batch of paint I mixed was slightly different to the first.
The mirrors were glued in once the painting is complete. I decided against using the provided knobs for the drawers and used pretty grey pearl beads.
Once I'd done the final sanding to give it the shabby chic look, and a good polish with a brown paper bag, I added the cushions (just noticed that one is back to front, I didn't realise the seam was showing).
The photos are not the best, I took them in a hurry. You will see them again in their proper setting later on, when hopefully I have more time to take a proper photo shoot.
Just so you can see the size, here's a quick snap of my new Poppy Parker.
Hope you are all having a productive week!
