Latest Painted Furniture Projects

I think it’s safe to say that Autentico’s Nearly Black chalk paint is up there as one of my favourite paint colours.

It is a lovely liquid looking black with a midnight blue hue rather than Annie Sloan’s Graphite which is a definite grey black, but just as lovely.

When I bought this vintage hall/console table I knew it had to painted Nearly Black to give it that modern twist.

This beautiful small dresser was a lucky find.

Perfect for a country kitchen which is why I chose a fabulous pale blue paint colour that has a subtle green hue to it.

This sweet trolley makes the perfect bedside table to store all your books.

Hand painted in Autentico’s Corfu White and given a distressed and waxed finish.

This lovely bedding box painted Nearly Black was complimented by the Cabbages and Roses linen floral cushion.

I painted this lovely cabinet in Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg chalk paint for the exterior and then chose a contrasting colour for the interior which is Annie Sloan’s Primer Red.

My daughters have their eye on this solid pine chest of drawers.

I’m not sure if it’s down to the pastel colours or the sparkly glass handles, either way it’s a perfect piece for a girl’s bedroom.

Wednesday Wish List – Studio Ditte Wallpaper

Studio Ditte design a fun and funky digitally printed wallpaper collection.

From china plates to toy robots to birdhouses, their fresh designs turn their backs on traditional wallpaper and bring the fun factor to walls.

My personal favourite is the birdhouses followed closely by the china plates.

Wednesday Wish List – Show Some Shoulder

I have been noticing a mini trend appearing on the chicΒ streets and that is the off the shoulder trend.

A feminine and subtle way to show some skin this summer or go all out and wear it Olivia Newton John Grease style.
