French linen dresser and paris grey ottoman

Well I cant believe its the weekend again and half term! Have so many projects to finish but am going to take monday off to spend with my daughter and have a girly day as she doesnt get to spend as much time with me on her own these days its just always so busy!
I went to Derbyshire earlier in the week to stock up on paint colours and annie sloans french linen was recommended to me which i have used on a french dresser. I used paris grey on the inside and also to edge some panels of it for definition and contrast. Its turned out really well! I do love the colour paris grey and have used it rather a lot this week!!
I also painted a rather dated repro corner unit and lined the inside with laura ashley wallpaper which looks so much fresher and prettier,and a nice useful piece of furniture as it takes up very little room in a small space but provides a nice place to showcase pretty knicknacks and also has good hidden storage in the bottom!
I also did this sweet little ottoman. I love them as they make great coffee tables,blanket boxes etc, i have one at the end of my bed and they are perfect places to keep pillows and spare bedding! I aged this with 2 types of wax to add character and protect the chalk paint.
Anyway, my husbands snoring on the sofa so I think i`d better get some dinner started!! Thanks for readingxFiFi
