The old China cabinet
The very first home we bought, the previous owners had left this old china cabinet with lead light glass, that was surplus to their needs.
I love the style but it was an old dark brown, rather boring looking piece and this look had to go. I had always intended doing something with it and I forgot to take a before photo, sorry.
So the other day she got a little face lift with a coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint - the hardest thing was choosing what colour to use. French linen was the colour I opted for and love this paint - one that you do not need to do an undercoat and that it goes on so beautifully and does not have a strong odour like some paints do when you are painting.
So happy with how it looks and it has given it a new lease of life.
Pretty blooms of pink and white stock are giving a sweet fragrance to the lounge - love the gentle hues. These flowers remind me so much when I was a little girl, as my Mother often grew them in the garden, they made such a gorgeous show with all the lovely colours.
Hope you have a happy weekend and thank you for visiting me and the comments you leave.
I look forward to coming over to say hello to you all.
