Something a bit different

Long time so speak, my friends! It's actually been 4 entire weeks since I last posted - how time flies. And yep, that's because I have not been sewing in this time!! In case you are feeling nosy, this is because I have recently discovered Annie Sloane chalk paint, and am loving it! As I have been spending my weekends sanding, painting, waxing, and sanding some more, I thought I'd share some before and after photos of my painting projects with you today :)

Pine mirror - before                                                 after

Our new dining table - before (heavily marked)

After (sanded, waxed and painted)

So something a bit different today, and I hope you enjoyed the mini-makeovers. Now that my furniture painting projects are done (for now, anyway), it's time to get back to sewing, so I shall be back soon to report on my sewing projects. For now, I hope you all have a lovely week ahead! 


  1. Great job! I did that to a $10 yards sale table, and it totally pays off!

    1. Thank you, Rachel! My table actually cost £10 (plus the van rental cost...) but it sure scrubs up well ;)

  2. That table looks amazing! I know how much work that was!

  3. Thank you Mary! Thankfully I invested into a handheld sander, so that's helped matters :) it's well worth the effort, though!

  4. Nice job, Alice. I know how a small DIY furniture makeover can bring you satisfaction.


Thank you for stopping by! Leave a comment before you go ;)
