I was up very early this morning finishing off Paige's painted hutch. For this piece I used a mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints for a custom match to my kitchen. It's hard to colour match exactly but I think it's close enough, especially when it gets back to Paige's house and is in a different environment and light.
Beautiful hand embroidered cocktail napkins from an estate in Dover Heights given to me by a friend. The dinner set was my mother's. She won it in a competition and just loved it but never used it. She wasn't someone who saved special things , she liked to use her treasures so I'm not sure why she never used this set. Maybe I should start using it for her :)
Inside is painted a white water based enamel for easy use. I love the bead board backing. It makes it very interesting.
and before - a big difference. Paige is on her way now to see it so I hope she loves it.
What do you think?
Much more elegant, isn't it?
