Good morning lovelies. Firstly I have to say how much I appreciate your emails and comments in response to my work. It really means a lot to me so thank you.

I'm going to be quick today as I'm under the pump to finish a very old Australian meat safe and hutch. it has needed a huge amount of work and is getting picked up tomorrow. I am confident of finishing but do't have much time for other things today.  I did want to share this beautiful coffee table I finished yesterday.

This is such a practical (and gorgeous) piece. the two drawers slide the whole way through from front to back so they are accessible from both sides.  I painted the insides of the drawers in this beautiful seafoam green.

This is my favourite colour palette - muted putty grey and white. Very elegant and neutral.

  1. I love all your your work. You are a true artist and an inspiration. When I discovered your blog years ago, I read the entire thing in a matter of days. I still look forward to each post. You are a big reason I tried painting furniture and foumd out I was good at it! Thank you! This piece is beautiful, elegant and I would love to find a similar piece to paint in a similar way. Your colors are always spot on, which is something I seem to struggle with. I haven't had to repaint anything yet but know that day will come simply due to a wrong color choice. Oh how I wish I could buy this coffee tavle, but, alas, I live in Kansas, USA.
