Paint Everything!

And we literally mean everything! Just recently we have been working on a beach house renovation. The clients owned some sound, but tired rattan chairs. The cushions were in a very faded blue and cream fabric and the chair frames themselves were yellowing with age. 

As we have recently become Annie Sloan Chalk Paint stockists and have been totally wowed by the ease of using the paint and how well it covers seemingly everything, we thought "lets give its a go!" 

We know the finished result had to be better than how they started, but frankly even I was amazed at the transformation. We used Duck Egg chalk paint, finished with a white wax to give it a slightly washed, driftwood type finish and it really looked great.

This was then coupled with new seat and back cushions in a Villa Nova fabric called Geneva Aluminium and a scatter cushion was added to complete the look. The scatter cushion fabric, which was Clarke and Clarke Gravity Jade, was also used to upholster the top of a low bench, in the same room, which again was painted in Duck Egg with white wax, just to give it all a bit of cohesion.

All in all this has fuelled my enthusiasm to paint everything!

All of the back, seat and scatter cushions were made by Inspiring Interiors and we work with a fab Upholsterer too!
