There is a wonderful little shop - Country Mouse, not far from me which supplies beautiful painted furniture, vintage items for the home and it is where I buy my Annie Sloan chalk paint!
I attended a furniture painting workshop there yesterday and learnt such a lot!
I picked up the shelf from a junk shop and the little drawers are part of a table top chest my friend Kate found at a Sue Ryder Sale.
... and the paint? Who else but Annie Sloan, of course!
Amongst so many opened pots of colour, I was in heaven.
... there were 5 lovely people painting and it was super getting to know them over the paint brushes.
I loved this contraption - a paint brush drier - you fasten in the wet clean brush and then spin the handle and the brush whirls round and dries (like lettuce leaf spinners) ...
distressed Old Violet
Provence with black wax in the grain.
I have pots of paint which I bought including Scalet Empress and big plans to paint, paint and paint!
