I'm very excited to be over at Relics of Witney's blog today, 
where you can find more about how to get these solid wooden finials and poles...

to look like this painted-and-gilt-creamed curtain pole...

How beautiful do they look now, eh?!

Getting a gorgeously bespoke finish this way isn't as hard as you might think....and considerably cheaper than other options too!

In December, Relics of Witney will be showing a step-by-step guide about how gilt cream can give you Christmassy va-va-voom...so don't forget to subscribe!

Now, I'm off to prepare some yummy food for warming our tummies as we watch some more fireworks tonight!
