The little side table I shared in the last post has been painted in a french taupe (my kitchen colour) and I found (in my shed, as you do..) a gorgeous vintage crackled porcelain handle that was made in Limoges, France. It suits the table perfectly. I think I may keep this table for a while.
My aunt gave me a huge wicker chair that was very bright blue so I toned it down with a darker blue (Deep Ocean Blue by Dulux). I have a huge tin of this as I thought it was our house trim colour but unfortunately it isn't. Our house trim is actually darker than this so I now have a whole 4 litre tin to get rid of. (and I can't work out what our house colour is).
The chair is quite gorgeous. I love the plaited trim detail. It's very comfortable and in perfect condition but I have no room for it so I'll be selling it.
I'm off to walk to the supermarket and then catch a taxi home with all the groceries. It's such a bummer not being able to drive. Our school has a movie night on Friday and I'm running the cake stall so I've got 200 cupcakes to make and decorate (I offered before I broke my arm but am sure it will still be fine). I'll be busy tomorrow.
