Fashion Friday – St Patrick’s Day Green.


Latest Painting Projects – Decoupage With Cavallini Paper.

Cavallini produce some of the best quality wrapping papers around and are perfect for decoupage projects.

This particular paper reminds me of the new Ardmore Collection by Cole and Son which is simply spectacular.

I had a blanket box with panels that proved to be the perfect piece to showcase this gorgeous wrapping paper.

The box was painted using Autentico’s Nearly Black chalk paint and after applying the paper I then protected the whole piece with a matt varnish.

I was so pleased with the final result that I couldn’t bear to part with it.

It’s a keeper!

Latest Painting Project – Oval Dining Table Gustavian Style.

I’ve mentioned before my love for a drop leaf table as they are such versatile pieces.

Not only do they make great space saving dining tables but they also look fabulous placed behind sofas and in hallways as console tables.

This particular table is a favourite of mine as it is oval in shape and has beautiful deep leaves that hide the legs when they are folded away.

As the table is oak I chose a Gustavian style paint effect as the grain of the wood absorbs the pale grey wash beautifully against the Belgian Stone chalk paint base.

I then finished the whole piece with white wax.

Seats up to 8 people.

Currently for sale £375.00

Chic and stylish.
