The dressing table

This is the biggest piece I have done so far and I must admit that I am giving painting a bit of a break for a few days, well a day or so!

The before, rather a sad and dusty looking piece with knobs missing and generally uncared for.

Nearly there, Annie Sloan's Paris Grey with Old White wash on the edges.

In place in the bedroom

Very lightly distressed.

Looks lovely with the Gervaise Yellow walls (Farrow and Ball). Next the bed.


  1. Very pretty. I love the grey/yellow combination!

  2. I love this piece and the Paris Gray and Old White tells me that I am more inclined to use this combination on my chairs and the base of my table. I will use the clear as you say and then test the dark brown over it to see how it looks in some of the crevices. I love the Louis Blue because I love the color blue but I'm just not sure how it would look with the Paris Grey.

    Thank you so much for the invite to France. I wish I could afford to come and hope that someday it will be possible that I can do that. Should you ever decide you want to visit the USA ( I live in Texas) I would love to have you stay with us.

    I was going to do a post on painting the chairs and base showing the before and after through each stage. It would be lovely to have you speak on Annie Sloan paint and your experience with it.
