I can’t wait to paint out the burgundy (we have called it a horrid name this colour) and paint our front door that delicious deep grey. The garden will be getting a huge makeover as well. Along the front those little bed things will be changed and I will put European box hedges in and pines I will clip to form a twist/spiral shape. The Austrian Blinds will be going to make way for wicker roman blinds. I just want it all done now. lol
I have had loads of emails about how I done my little $5 sideboard. So here is what I done…
Remember it was blue to begin with? Well I didn’t do any undercoat or priming, but used the paint I painted our bedroom floor with, Cabots Timber Colour, in Chalk White USA (dulux). I gave it one coat I think. I then filled some of the bigger cracks with wood putty, and gave it a light sand. Then I found some leftover stain from when we done our backdoor ages ago and rubbed it on with a rag, mainly around the edges, where you would normally expect a piece to age. It looked too new at this stage, so I painted a little more white on to the center of each panel, feathering it as I got close to the edges. That was pretty much it. Oh, then I gave the edges a light sand around where you’d expect the wood to show through, handles and corners.
I thank you all for the huge response about the colours I have chosen for our home and my sideboard. It made all the pain today worth it.
