Well hi there, sorry its been a few days! I spent the last couple of days renovating furniture, sorting out the house and baking cupcakes for my daughters valentine cake stall at school!! I have spent the day today sorting out a sweet vintage coffee table that my husband bought ages ago..did i give him a hard time at the time?Possibly...But dont let him read this!! Anyway its got a good shape and looks nice painted in annie sloan `old white` which (as i mentioned on my fifichic facebook page)...yes I do use white too often but today i`m going to show you something in paris grey too!! Watch this space for more colours.. coming soon to FiFiChic!!
The bench/pew was varnished in a horrid orange colour reminisant of 80`s pine that everyone seemed to have in their home at one time..and yes you can still get it today!! The brilliant thing about annie sloan paint is that I didnt need to sand it first as it will key(stick!) straight over the varnish!
The paris grey looks a bit like a khaki colour as it goes on but once it dry its a lovely soft chalky light grey! Perfect!
Anyway i`m off to make a cup of tea as i havent stopped
today...children,husband,business,house,can we have it all ladies...? I think i`d rather someone gave it to me and let me spend my days looking at shoes but c`est la vie, its probably more character building having to work!!! Hehe!Thanks for listening xFiFi
