coastal style beach cottage makeover
Thu 20th, Feb, 2014
G’day beach cottage friends, well remember those old vintage chairs I found the other day, hmmm, well one of them needed love, freshness and some paint…and it’s not white! If you are averse to either the painting of wood or a touch of zee yellow, please step away from your computer right now.
So if you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I’m finding yellow popping up all over my life – it’s cheerfulness and optimism is helping me I guess.
I decided to pop that onto one of these chairs, I did have to take a deep old breath, I still, even after all the many things I have painted, feel a strange pang when I paint lovely wood…the way I look at it now though is that whatever I do to it, if it stays in my house and gets loved with us, we’ve saved it from landfill…
And that is me and how I cook on through to the weekend and lovely Friday…with a yellow chair and a pot of yellow paint I had mixed to hopefully resemble the colour of primrose…whatever next?
See you next time with a bunch of photos of pretty things.
