Willy Wonka + the Choclate Factory

For our 2 year anniversary i took my girlfriend to the theatre, something she loves.

Enjoy, as i did!

I've always wanted to try a stencil, especially in this case of needing a desk and recycling the vast amounts of chipboard we have in my parents garage!

Recently i have been inspired to create a reclaimed coffe table, one that doesn't cost £200 on eBay and one that fits my criteria for a practical sense.

Below is the final result, with the progression and plan.












Tips,


When you're sanding, and you think 'that'll do' do more! it'll really pay off in the end!
