The other day I had a late start and began the day with a cuppa …whilst sitting up and sipping my tea in bed, I decided that the IKEA chest of drawers in that room needed a change.
I decided to paint it with chalk paint, I chose English Rose colour and I painted with a sponge over the transfers
and when I removed the transfers rather liked the effect.
Then I foolishly decided to edge the transfer extent in a gold pen and after doing a couple of drawers decided I hated it.
So then I decided to remove the paint and the marker and re-sponge the paint over. Yes that was a horrid job and yes I was very cross with myself.
I purchased some more transfers, this time in a very pretty blossom pattern…
I think I like it – what do you think?
—————————————————a few days later————————————————–
Nah… It looks silly – I thought I could start it at the edge or paint it in… but no I don’t like it.
So I came home nice and early and sponged over the whole area with a little white acrylic to break it up and then over again with the English Rose and that is it.
I’ve just got to wax it and leave it in this retro 1980s style.
So I still have the transfers to use….mmm
