Re: The skinflinting Thread!

Oh, that's very nice! The chalk paint did work very well on the unit I use as a bedside cabinet. It was a white bathroom unit, shiny mdf. I put a couple of coats of primer on first, and then the cream chalk paint, and waxed it well. Over time, my alarm clock has rubbed a mark on the surface, but oth...

Re: stolen chickens

LAdyA, do you think they might be brazen enough to advertise them on gumtree or freeads? I will keep my eye out for any ad's for this breed. It is also possible they might take them to the markets, I think Derby has one on a Saturday, Melton Mowbray (Leicestershire), York.... I've no idea, Tweetypi...

Re: The skinflinting Thread!

The prices of things never ceases to amaze me. Last week I got a heavy duty sack barrow from Amazon for £34. This is a really useful bit of kit and seemed very reasonably priced to me. Then I looked at a sheep roll-over crate which is a thing that you put a sheep in then turn a wheel and the sheep ...

Re: The skinflinting Thread!

Can you please PM which brand it was Lady A, if you can remember. I was intending to chalk paint some furniture and there are three brands available round here ... It was a brand called Autentico Vintage Chalk paint. I'm much better pleased with the units I've done with the satinwood! I'm even more...

Re: The skinflinting Thread!

There are a number of different Chalk Paints available, some of which can be used for woodwork. The best makes need virtually no preparation and they don't smell. Are a bi expensive though ... I've used chalk paint before. Never again! Even after waxing, you have to be careful of the surface, becau...

Re: The skinflinting Thread!

Decorating is finished! I'm so happy! I put the final coat of cream satinwood paint on two small bedside units this morning. They were light brown mdf, but the surface had worn badly on one of them. And I finished the radiator yesterday. I'm really glad to have done with gloss and satinwood paint. T...

Re: Dithering...good or bad sign?

How lovely! Just keep an eye on their bedtime habits until you are sure that everyone is going in safely. I had a hen one time that was perfectly fine during the day, but at bedtime, she turned into a right bully. She would go into the house early herself (she was the oldest hen by a couple of years...

Re: The skinflinting Thread!

I love charity shops, and a lot of my clothes come from there. My best charity shop bargains ever were a silver Tiffany & Co. pendant for €7 and a 9ct gold and diamond pendant for €20! I never wear gold, so that went to my sister, but I kept the silver one. Margaid, I am with you about mopping up oi...

Re: The skinflinting Thread!

Oh, the joys of second hand shops!! I've been decorating. Very long overdue! What used to be our bedroom when my husband was alive (I found I couldn't sleep in there anymore after he had to move to a nursing home), had not been painted since we bought this house, 19 years ago!! And even then, we wer...
