Rainy Day Paint Jobs

It rained ... and rained ... trapped indoors she painted an old stool and recovered it (awaiting braiding to neaten up the edges).
Loving this barkcloth fabric.
Heavy ebonised pot stand ...
with interesting detailing
Painted in 'Old White'
Distressed a little to accentuate the carving ...
... and waxed.

Gorgeous little stool, the fabric is perfect. I am afraid I let out a little argh! when I saw you were about to paint the pot stand. Hope all is well, Tam x

P.s. love the colour of your walls!

Gorgeous barkcloth - I love that design. The pot stand looks so much better now that you have painted and distressed it. You have given it a new lease of life.
Best wishes, Pj x

Jane,

Beautiful makeovers! I love Old White! The stool is so sweet and the barkcloth beautiful. I am wondering what it will look like with the braiding. Don't forget to share a picture with us!

We celebrate Mother's Day here in the US and I wanted to wish you a Happy Mom's Day!

What a great job! It never fails to amaze me whata difference a coat (or two) of paint can make :o)
