Decision made.

I finally made my mind up to paint the duet stool and here it is.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
I used Annie Sloan's wonderful paint. There is no need to do any preparation and it goes on like a dream. I've rubbed it back for a distressed look and waxed it.
Now I've got the painting bug and as I badly need more storage when I saw this sideboard in a charity shop I snapped it up.
This is how it looked before painting.

....and here it is after a coat of Country Grey Paint rubbed back for a distressed look and waxed.

I'm so pleased with the results. My room is looking so nice.

Oh! here's the sofa that was next to the sideboard in the shop, of course that had to come home with me too.

I'll be painting some more pieces of furniture soon, I'll show you the results!
