I'm loving reviving furniture. My very patient husband is coping with the loads of furniture around the house -as well as paint cans, sanding paper, brushes etc. When I say coping it's only just...
Here is my latest project. I bought this lovely desk at the antique auctions which are conveniently located at the end of my street! Can you believe it? It's where I'll be on Monday mornings from now on (with my take away coffee and book as the auction goes for 2 hours).
I sanded back it back and primed it before painting it firstly with a coat of Limed white and then with limed white quarter strength. this gives it a lovely aged look as the darker coat shows through just a tiny bit. I then painted the harlequin pattern - same as on the coffee table I did on the weekend. I then top coated it all with poly acrylic. I also had to replace the little bits of wood that stops the drawers going back too far.
I'm not much of an interior designer but I've done a couple of vignettes below. Not sure I rate with Miss Mustard Seed and her latest display on her Union Jack Dresser but it's a start.
