The next thing I need (ok, want) is a cast iron bed frame. Something along these lines, but in white (I think that will go with the pastels of the bedspread best):
The problem is, I already have a perfectly good silver bed frame from Fantastic. I bought it in an $1000 package that pretty much entirely furnished my apartment while I was at university over five years ago. It's still going strong, and while it's not the exact style I want, I have a problem with replacing something that isn't broken. So I'm thinking, can I paint my silver frame just to tide me over until I can afford a $500+ antique bed frame? I'm not very crafty by any means, but I guess all it would need is a spray of my chosen colour, and then a varnish or something to seal the colour to stop it from chipping/peeling? I will investigate with my tradie brother.
Now, instead of studying this morning, I have chosen to bake! It feels like a baking day, as the weather is very dreary and it's quite chilly. Can you guess what I'm making from my ingredients?
If you guessed Anzac biscuits, you were right on the money. I tried this recipe from Taste.com.au for the first time, as I prefer a chewy Anzac to a crunchy one. They've just come out of the oven and they're delicious... nice and soft on the inside and just a tad crunchy on the outside. I can see they're not going to last the day!
