Re: Latest Project

You have done a brilliant job summer. A lovely 'flat' finish, which I like. I like the girly bits too.

How resourceful you are, Summer! I am a member of a wee craft group and one of our members is keen on up-cycling. She is a fan of Annie Sloan paints and, like you, has achieved great results.

Most people know I never buy anything new apart from soft furnishing ... the mirror was a junkyard find years ago it was originally a dark beaten up frame so rubbed it down and gave it the treatment Now its white with a flower top... a bit too girly for most I suspect...but I like it.

The chest of drawers was in my garage for about ten years storing gardening equipment ... its the second set I have given this chalk paint and new little knobs treatment I think I posted the other one here a while ago ... this one is smaller. Inspired by Escape to the Chateau


I see class and taste there,Summer....absolutely beautiful!...

Re: Latest Project

It's a lovely job Summer. Is that a glass top on the chest of drawers? I love your wooden room doors too.

Re: Latest Project

Thank you Pauline

Yes Annie the original chest didn't have a glass top but I had glass for this chest and two other smaller matching ones cut at a local glass cutters.... it made sense because the matte furniture paint I used would not have been a resilient surface for the tops....glad you like it....thank you.
