It was a miserable rainy weekend, perfect painting weather.
I fired up some music on Spotify and decided to start small with some pretty frames I had bought at the car boot sale.
I had 3 of these and thought they looked a bit boring and plain so I lighlty brushed them with some Annie Sloan Graphite, and before the paint dried I wiped some of it off to the colour underneath showed through.
Im going to show you step by step photos of this one (mainly because I actually rememberd to take step by step photos!!) Firstly, and working with the table upside down initially, I painted entirely in Annie Sloan Graphite.
Here is the table sanded back ready for the stencilling.
So, decision made !
Next, I turned my attention to a couple of tables I painted a while back. This little swivel top table has been up for sale on ebay for a while with little interest. Time for a makeover!!
You guessed it, another clock!! Hadn't tried out my number stencil before and I think it looks pretty cool. Once I had completed the clockface and let it dry, I then masked off the edge again to paint a narrow dark border.
While I was stencilling (and I do love stencilling) I thought I would jazz up another table I have in the house that I use as a side table at the end of a sofa.
Some good news!
I sold the duck egg blue deco dressing table yesterday and it will be collected on Sunday. The lady who bought it is furnishing a large farmhouse and may be looking for some other pieces :)
Right, time to clock off!!
Sorry for not blogging on Sunday but I was in the zone painting and time got away from me!!
Have a great week !
