Please come, bring a picnic, have a fun day & help us raise some money for the King's Lynn NICU that helped to save our youngest daughter's life when she was born at 24 weeks.

We have been in the Meadow producing lots of garden furniture for our customers to relax and enjoy the lovely summer weather (in between the awful summer weather!)

Finally some sunshine!

We have been enjoying the wonderful hot and sunny Norfolk weather out in the Meadow Made Garden this bank holiday weekend.

It's not been all play thou, we have been working on some new products using some lovely reclaimed timber.


These are the first images of our Garden Ladder, perfect for pots and a super idea when space is limited!


All in all, a lovely weekend at 'The Meadow', lovely weather, lovely family time and some lovely new products on the way.

It's been a long and very busy time since our last blog post. We've been working into the early morning hours, planning and making many new Meadow Made products which will be appearing on the site soon.


We have also been giving our kitchen a much needed make over. We have opened up the room by lightening the wall colour, added some lovely extra storage with a Meadow Made plate rack, a new Meadow Made shelf and rounded it off with a beautiful new fridge freezer.



All this was achieved whilst our children were home on half-term, and with our Meadow Made Vintage attention to detail in full swing.


Our decorating step by step;


Sheeting up

It wasn't practical to protected the floor with paper and plastic, as I would normally, due to the traffic and constant use our kitchen is always under. So extreme care was taken when I was wielding paint filled brushes and rollers!


Vacuum sanding

I used a vacuum and dust extraction sander, so although I did a lot of sanding I made very little dust.


Ceiling and coving

Sanded, then filled using acrylic caulk in all the gaps between walls and the coving. Then painted with 2 coats of matt white vinyl paint.


Woodwork

For the interior woodwork, I sanded, filled, and applied 3 coats of acrylic eggshell magnolia paint.


Walls

Sanded, filled, and painted. It took 3 coats to cover the old dark sage colour, of a scrub-able (5 sets of little children’s fingers = lots of scrubbing!) vinyl paint, in magnolia.


Next it was time to fit our new Meadow Made plate rack, over our fridge freezer and hang our Meadow Made shelf, both finished in F&B's All White.


And finally... the bit J (my world and wonderful wife) was impatiently waiting for... the chance to place, move and replace her vintage china and accessories!

Again it's been a bit too long since our last blog post. We here at The Meadow have been trying to get our heads around the many forms of social media open to us all.


We have finally (I think!) managed to get a Meadow Made Twitter account up and running, and also a Meadow Made Pinterest one.


Hopefully, we will soon also have an Instagram account running for those of you out there using it.

It seems that due to having 6 children, Christmas, New Year & 2 January birthdays, Meadow Made Vintage have been neglectful of our blog,

(mmmm... feel like a new, 'New Years Resolution' coming on?!)


However, we have (finally) found our way out from under all the wrapping paper, those horrible ties that weld toys to their packaging & have fought our way through the snow, ice & now flood water!!


Some great customer feedback images coming through to Meadow Made Vintage, thank you & keep them coming.

These will be posted soon... promise!!
