OK, I know this is a gardening blog but when winter comes along, I must have a few crafty projects on the go to bring more colour (preferably blue) into my life. This spare bedroom is full of second-hand and hand-me-down furniture. There were 4 different colours of wood in here, and I couldn't stand it any longer. So I painted the dresser and night stand with 'chalk paint' - the coolest stuff in the world which you can buy in Calgary at Lauren Lane Decor (they are not paying me to say this!) It's super easy to use and also easy to distress if you like that look.
Actually, I painted these pieces back in the summer but I finally got around to hanging the curtains a few weeks ago so wasn't ready to show you until now. I managed to find some fabric to tie the navy, the provence blue, and the browns of the unpainted oak headboard and cork floor to tie everything together (top photo, above). Do you love it? I do!
