The beginning of the week was very interesting.
I tried out something that I really didn’t think would work out that well and that was to paint fabric.
How wrong I was.
I’ve had these cream chairs for a while and they didn’t bode well with young children, subsequently they’ve been splattered with paint, various liquid refreshments, wet hair, cat paw prints and goodness know what else.
So I decided to paint the fabric as it couldn’t be any worse.
A couple of coats later and even a coat of wax later and they were transformed.
The texture isn’t dissimilar to leather, maybe not as shiny but a darn sight better than what they were.
Here is the evidence.
Next project was a lovely Edwardian dressing table that I decided to paint in a colour I hadn’t tried before and that was Autentico’s After Rain. A beautiful soft grey/ green colour that would compliment a wide range of colour schemes.
I particularly love the brass handles, which came up a treat with a
bit lot of elbow grease.
Finished with a clear wax and distressed finish.
Then I started on this lovely rustic farmhouse pine table.
I chose Annie Sloan’s Graphite for the top and Autentico’s Linen for the base.
I love how the dark grey paint makes everything pop.
Food on white plates would look so inviting on this table.
If I could find a space for it I think it would have been a keeper.
Finally I’m currently waiting for the paint to dry on two lovely single bed headboards but I think I shall have to post these next time.
Have a wonderful weekend
