Hello, hope you are all well...it is the first day of school for Term 3 for my kids today.
We've enjoyed the holidays very much but just quietly I am enjoying today too ;)
I had a bit of a break from painting in the holidays which is nice for a short while, then I miss it terribly and cannot wait to get back into it! I have quite a few custom jobs lined up at the moment which I am very grateful for, and now the kids are back at school I am looking forward to getting stuck into them.
I did sneak this transformation in last week, and have just managed to get photos of it this morning. You would think after several years I would remember to take a 'before' shot of each project, but for this one I didn't, so we can skip straight to the pretty 'after's ;)
This was my first project using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Paris Grey, and I love it...what's not to love about a pretty grey, especially when teamed with white. I used a watered down mix of Old White on the tabletop, which I sanded back to bare wood. I waxed the whole lot with Annie Sloan Soft Wax in clear, and it's hard to tell in my photos but when you buff after using this wax you get the most amazing shine on your pieces.
I distressed the suite quite heavily because I think it needed to be with this colour and style.
I am a total sucker for vintage-style signs...just cannot help myself, they are so cute!
How can you not love that?
I love them almost as much as I love bunting ;)
