Teaser time!

It's been a busy week, kids back at school but my little one is doing staggered days for two weeks, so I don't know whether I'm coming or going!  But I thought I'd post a few little 'teasers' of my OWOH giveaway (see here if you haven't joined in for my giveaway yet!), just to whet your appetite!  So far....there is a bit of this involved.......
and then there's some of that.....
and a bit of this happening on the outside....
some of that on the inside.......
and lastly, some of this.......
and then again...I may change my mind completely and it won't have any of this at all!

Speaking of changing my mind, it's not exactly the weather for crocheting, but I've decided to give this old cardi I bought a while back a makeover and so am taking it from basic black to something that I hope will be a little more interesting.  I thought it would be a nice, practical wardrobe item when I bought it on sale, but no, it's just never worked for me, the tie waist isn't particularly flattering because it's rather BIG on me, and it has just hung on the back of my door for too long now.  As I am terminally disorganised, I haven't got a 'before' picture, so this is a 'part-way-through-could-go-anywhere-from-here' picture, having added a fluffy blue-green edging.  I'm considering adding a point to the hood, but not sure how, so there will be some fiddling and twiddling to come!  I might keep it, or it might end up in my Etsy shop (or the Op shop if it doesn't work!).
And finally, another project, my lovely old kitchenette, bought off a friend for a song and in need of some love.  I thought initially that I might sand it right back, but it is honeyish wood panels in a jarrah frame, so would be very dark.  It looks rather lovely in my kitchen just in white, so I might leave it like that (I did entertain the idea of bright red for a bit though), but the inside needs some attention, as you can see.  I wish I knew who invented cork-look plastic contact, I'd lock them in a room for a year with nothing but Dan Brown novels, and a dvd of Judge Judy.  The beige paint HAS to go, and I was just going to paint the whole inside white...but now I'm rather tempted to do it a nice apple green.....hmmmmm.
And then of course...there are a few drawings that need to be finished!

I love that kitchen unit! I've just been given a maid server which is not dissimilar to yours only alot smaller!

You're on a roll! Love the kitchen cabinet. The apple green would be lovely. Do you like yellow? That might look nice also. Creativity seems to be hitting everyone this week, for everyone is getting busy.
Can't wait to see all the finished projects..
