I love me some Swedish Gustavian Furniture, which is why I adore Loi Thai's blog Tone on Tone. I picked up 3 great chairs on Ebay recently and decided to try my hand at replicating the Swedish Gustavian look.
Yikes, is it really that long since I posted here?!?!
I have been busy with furniture painting and recovering of chairs. One thing that has really put a lot more fun back into my projects has been the use of Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. How good is this paint?! Here's a lovely desk that I used the Chalk Paint on. I did the base colour in Pure White and the top coat in Paris Gray (my personal favourite).
These chairs (2 of) have turned out just as I imagined and I am so happy with them.
I have just finished this lovely Double bedhead.
When I got it, it was upholstered in pink velvet and looked rather tired.
I would love to write more but I need to get back into the garage with my paintbrush!
This chair was a great find. I mulled over what to do with it for some time. I could see it with fresh white woodwork and a navy and white patterned fabric, but decided to stick with the neutrals. I used my new stencil which I love. It was a little time consuming but well worth the effort.
I hope you all have a great week leading up to Christmas and get all those last minute jobs crossed off your list :)
