Well I should be in Nottingham helping hubby, but one of the testing machines threw a hissy fit yesterday, so we’re down to one and I’m off the hook.
I’ve made a start on a bureau instead:
The inside is being painted in Annie Sloan ‘Emperor’s Silk, whilst the outside is Autentico Vintage ‘Cappuccino’. Lovely warm colours to be working with on a misty, Autumn day.
I’m planning on painting a deep red rose on the inside and also have some pretty Frenchy images to embellish. Oh, I do love refurbishing bureaux; they are such a lovely canvas to go a little wild with.
I’ve got a load of sewing samples lined up too, but they will have to wait a few days, as there’s another bureau in hot pursuit of this one.
Progress pics to follow…
