WOYWW 188

Good morning folks.
It's that time of the week again, the time to share your workplace with the world. Your host, the lovely Julia from Stamping Ground, follow the link for all the details and desks galore.

Here is my world this morning.
 The overview - looks more like a toolshed in this light!, Still there are a few things in progress, instead of the usual having to hide stuff I can't share yet. On the right, you can see my Distress Stains.
 A box merrily rusting away. This rust paint I use is so unpredictable in the way it reacts it's fascinating! This will be a container for my Distress stains when finished
 Then, work has commenced on  this book/box, I'm pretty pleased with progress though there's a long way to go yet.....
And, the first layer of paint has gone onto my pipework.....
Right, it's the wife's birthday so things to do, catch you all later........
