Well last weekend I set about operation revamp. Sanding down, painting, distressing and now it looks like this.
Have a closer look at the distressing, this piece needed quite a few coats of paint until I was happy with it and then I rubbed it all off!
The name 'bimaculated duck' was one I was not familiar with, so I couldn't resist investigating on line. In doing so I found out that the Bimaculate Duck or Squawk Duck, is a Baikal Teal duck. It breeds within the forest zone of eastern Siberia. Now there's a bit of useless information you can impress your friends with at your next dinner party. More interestingly..........I also saw the same print for sale for £75!!
Now I've got just the right place for this in my hall I just need to raid OH's toolbox for the necessaries. So with that I'll say have a lovely weekend and I'll see you all next week.
