Well I have had a busy week painting....

and will soon have three more finished items listed for sale on trademe.co.nz.   There is a French Cream Lowboy which matches the Duchess, a Baby Pink Whitewashed Lowboy, and a Sage Green Distressed Welsh Dresser.  I will post a link to them once they have been listed, which will hopefully be tomorrow.  In the meantime, here is a sneak peek at them...

Left: before I worked my magic, and Right, the finished result!

When I look at a potential piece I can 'see' it already finished and of course, that tells me which colour to paint it.  I was so excited at the prospect of painting this piece pink that I forgot to take a 'before' shot...oops!  Prior to the new paintjob it was plain white and very unloved.....but just look at her now!

Left: before, and Right, my wee helper man giving the dresser a scrub down with sugar soap in preparation for painting :)

Not quite finished, but very close...
