Wednesday Wish List – The Versatile Black Ankle Boot

This season is all about the ankle boot.

On my wish list is a black ankle boot that does everything – looks great with jeans and dresses, possibly even pyjamas.

Having thought I couldn’t pull off the biker boot, I have finally given in and ordered a pair.

According to Jess Cartner-Morley, the Guardian’s fashion editor, they will change your life.  I am expecting great things…

Failing that, I may opt for a chic mid heel number.

More Hand Painted Furniture

I’ve been a busy bee lately with various commission projects that are still on the go, but I thought I’d show you some of my other painted pieces.

For a week in August we stayed in a fabulous town house situated in SW France that is owned by a dear friend with impeccable taste! The interior of the property was painted white with beautiful pieces of vintage furniture, such as a black bed and black chest of drawers.

They looked so chic that I decided to paint this gorgeous walnut wardrobe in Nearly Black chalk paint and line the interior with a fun wallpaper.

Image

The wallpaper is by Sandberg, Mr & Mrs Collins.

Image

The proportions of this sweet dressing table I think are perfect for a girl’s room so I gave it a lick of Silver chalk paint, covered the drawers in Ralph Lauren’s Toile wallpaper, changed the knobs and painted the insides of the drawers in Warm Grey paint, a lovely lilac colour.

Hey presto, the perfect dressing table for a girl’s bedroom.

Before and after…

Image

Antique pine kitchen dresser hand painted in Brut chalk paint, lightly distressed and waxed finish.

Fell in love with this piece immediately.

Image

Image

A lovely chest of oak drawers given a Gustavian style make over , using Paris Grey chalk paint and dark wax.

The insides of the drawers are lined with Andrew Martin’s Love Letters wallpaper.

Image

Sweet book case.

Image

The perfect pine side table that now lives in my back porch! I painted the legs in a beautiful colour called Winter Sky.

Image

Even my walls have had the chalk paint treatment!

Until next time xx

Wednesday Wish List – Vintage Jelly Moulds

 Like a large proportion of the UK, I spent Sunday evening catching up on Downton Abbey.

Whilst I am thoroughly absorbed by the story line, part of the appeal of the programme is taking in all the set details from the dinner service to the fashion styles.

It was during a scene set in the kitchen that I saw a set of gleaming jelly moulds.

How fabulous they looked.

Wall art for your kitchen.

Must dash, ebay is calling…

Floral Friday – Gorgeous Grey

It appears that for the last few weeks I have been painting furniture in various shades of grey.

The colour has obviously rubbed of on me, so much so that I posted a grey Monday Mood Board and have chosen a grey Floral Friday post.

Maybe next week I’ll opt for shocking pink!

Anyway you can never have too much grey in my book, hope you enjoy.
