I heart Provence


Provence – the colour as opposed to the place.  I’ve been painting with it.  And very much enjoying the result.  It has transformed an ugly old chest of drawers into a piece of furniture I can really enjoy.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (mainly because it says you don’t need to sand or prime before you paint) and after adding wax, I’m pleased with the result.   The chest is for little K’s room which is painted a pale pink.  I was inspired to combine the pink and blue by the bunting on her wall and this funny little owl.
