I had a Furniture Painting Course last weekend, followed by a busy time at work this week, so I’m only just catching my breath.

I used a bedside cabinet as a demo piece for the first Furniture Painting Course this year. It was one of a pair and I painted it in Annie Sloan ‘French Linen’. A couple of my clock knobs were used to replace the original brass handles (which had seen better days):

The second bedside cabinet came out of retirement last weekend for my second Furniture Painting Course. This one was painted in Annie Sloan ‘Country Grey’, with the addition of a couple of knobs from my Paris range:


Mademoiselle Giselle made an appearance; between you and me, she puts herself about a bit, so don’t be taken in by her haughty strut:-)


I’m planning on taking some time off in the near future and had hoped for a break this weekend, but the weather looks quite promising, so I might make a start on the retro bureau lurking at the back of the paint shack.

Jasper has come in from the paddock a different colour to when he went out this morning. We’ve had light rain and the moist ground was just perfect for a bit of rolling. His coat is just about dry enough for me to get to work with the brushes – I may be gone some time…
