My lovely friend, Amity, must be psychic as she came up to me yesterday and said Fiona, you need to paint something turquoise". She's definitely on the money as I had actually spent the day sanding back and painting a long console that exact colour.
I white washed the top by mixing paint and water then rubbing it into the stripped raw wood. I then painted the base turquoise and then heavily distressed it and rubbed dark antique wax over it all.
and a quick makeover on a wicker basket to add some interest to my shop.
So, all in all, a couple of productive days. Hopefully I sell some stuff this weekend! (Although I spoke to a man this afternoon who was eye-ing off the little chest of drawers I finished earlier in the week and he's bringing his wife in to see it tomorrow). Fingers crossed for me!
