Then I spent most of the weekend giving my bedroom furniture a make over. We are revamping our bedroom and have ordered timber plantation shutters for the bay window. I wanted a soft shabby chic look, ( we have had Baltic pine for the past 15 years or so).
I had heard about chalk paints, and one of my girlfriends had recently done up an old telephone table and I was keen to give it a try. Paints were ordered and Gillian came over for the day. Here are the before shots, I forgot to photograph them in my room before I started.
Here is the finished result. I am so pleased with how they turned out.
Then on Sunday I was hooked so I decided that the hall table would look better in blue ( the white has a blue coat underneath and I still had half a tin of paint left ).
Robbie is always up for a photo opportunity, usually it's sitting on a newly completed quilt.
How good does this look. And the whole lot was done in a weekend in my garage. I am on the hunt for my next painting project, would love an old beat up dresser for my sewing room to then fill with pretties.
