Here is the back-
and some detail-
I love the crinkly feel and look of a just washed quilt.
I've mentioned my foray into furniture painting in previous posts. I was delighted to read about other quilter's furniture painting adventures from Belinda and Wendy. I finally have a few pieces to show you.
This dresser was a lot of work. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Country Grey and Old White. I found it on Craiglist and plan to sell it at a local thrift shop that I consign with.
We (my DH helps me) decided to take the scalloped trim off because it was brittle and already broken in some areas. I found this table at an estate sale in my neighborhood. I used ASCP Paris Grey as the base coat and Old White for the stencil and just a whisper on the trim. I hope to sell it at the thrift shop, too.
I'm not a big stencil person, but I like it on this coffee table.
I saved my favorite for last.
After Painting and a New Seat
My neighborhood does a clean up day in the spring. Put anything on your curb and they will pick it up and take it to the dump. We have regular biweekly trash collection, but they won't take just anything. The night before this special pickup I drove through the neighborhood to see what I could find. Score! I found this gossip bench (telephone table). I have absolutely no use for this thing, but I love it and plan to keep it!
My DH reupholstered the seat. I love it!
I used Scandinavian Pink for the first coat and Cream for the second coat. I probably could have distressed it more.
