Another problem solved.

The replastering nearly finished in the lounge, can't wait for the dust to settle. If the temperature had not been 34 degrees C in the shade maybe a bit more would have been done today. A new little project completed though, an oak piece bought at a Vide Grenier for 1 Euro will be placed above and alcove where we keep the logs. Two pieces off an old wardrobe will become the uprights. The completed projects will be posted when finished but for now here is the top bit.

I gave it a coat of limewash let that dry and then went over it with very fine 00 steel wool to make it look worn. I then waxed it and added a little embelishment.

The little decoration in the centre is from The Graphics Fairy reduced to fit the plaque exactly.


  1. That is just beautiful! Love the distressing on it! May I ask what "limewash" is? I've never heard of it and just love the look it gave your piece. Great job!
