So, the key enabler to my vintage furniture addiction is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I am new to the craze, but an utter convert. In the name of research I spent all of The Rascal's nap time googling-rather than doing housework-luckily Major C is familiar with my weakness for shabby chic and my inability to do housework at the best of times! Anyway, while I searched I came across an awesome blog: Chic Mouldings, it has brilliant hints, tips and a very thorough review of ASCP - go and look its brill!
Newly motivated, I am making a trip into Oakham today to get some new colours and a new wax brush. Then I reckon my towel rail might get finished, fingers crossed.
