Latest Project – Retro Bookcase with Decoupage Penguin Library Wallpaper.

I loved the idea of transforming this plain bookcase into a quirky statement piece.

This Osborne and Little Penguin Library wallpaper was the perfect choice combined with Sailors Blue chalk paint.

The paintwork has been given a lightly distressed finish and the whole piece has been protected with a clear matt water resistant varnish.

Latest Painting Project – Vintage Pine Wall Cabinet.

Wall cabinets are the secret for anyone searching for extra storage space with limited floor space.

Also they look fabulous too!

This gorgeous vintage pine wall cabinet has the added bonus of two small drawers which could be a lovely place to store keys in a hallway, make up in a bedroom, soap in a bathroom or general paraphernalia in a kitchen.

I chose Earth Stone chalk paint for the exterior (a lovely brown/grey) and Pavot Bleu for the interior ( a deep lavender/blue).

Lightly distressed and waxed finish.

Latest Painting Project – Truffle Chest of Drawers.

What catches my eye when buying a piece of furniture?

Proportions.

And this chest of drawers is a case in point.

The depth is half the width, it has 2 small drawers over 2 larger drawers, flat to the floor and the gorgeous brass linear style handles compliment the lines of the piece.

I chose Truffle chalk paint, a colour not dissimilar to Farrow and Ball’s Mouse’s Back, then finished with clear wax and gave it a lightly distressed finish.
