Renovating and recycling!

These are a few items we have rescued from the tip or car boot sales.  Ready and waiting for a new lease of life.  After having read The Occasional Pat blog I too have decided to try Annie Sloan chalky paint.  will post the outcomes as they emerge!


  1. Fab pieces, I'm sure all of them will look good painted. Is the third one down a sewing box? What colours have you chosen?

  2. Yes the 3rd one is a sewing box £5 at a car boot! I have chosen Ochre to begin with- and have already primed the little chest with french grey Farrow & Ball- I have used vinegar to bring the brass handles back to life! So may do top coat in ochre- I plan to use the same colour on the table with decoupage too.
