The last few weeks at Paisley Vintage have been crazy busy; loads of little projects were finished, a class or two were held and a lovely market was run, all of which I’m so grateful for, but I’ll definitely be glad for a quieter week or two asap! So I thought I’d share a few of the things that have gone on this month…
I’ve been working on a number of commission pieces of late, starting with this stunning armiore in Pure White. It drew a flurry of Facebook love with was very kind, and I was definitely happy to stand back and admire my work with this one! I’ve written a little about Pure White before (you can find out more here) and if you’re familiar with it yourself you’ll know if can require a few more coats that other colours. But the result is so worth it!
Another commission piece, but I had a few offers on this one! Another Pure White makeover, this piece was so beautifully made, and with that little bit of paint and light distressing came up beautifully.
Last but not least, this girl is so stunning, she was definitely hard to give back! French Linen is just one of my favourites, I often see more green than grey on certain pieces; to me it’s sophisticated and just has character! There are glass shelves for the hutch which will look beautiful, I can’t wait to see it back in it’s home. (And yes, that is my daughter Emma in the reflection! Every photo I took had her somewhere pulling faces!)
The French Country Market was also on this month. Such an amazing event, if you haven’t been before you should definitely try to go along. Even if you’re not a Francophile (but lets face it, there aren’t many of us who don’t love a little something French, even if it’s just cheese!) the array of stalls, the atmosphere, and the food are all amazing. In the photo on the right you can see three of four chairs I painted up especially for the market – they are definitely one the favourite things I’ve worked on and they went off to a lovely new home immediately. You know I’m a blue girl, and they just hit the spot perfectly. I’ve written about the French Country Market before over here. The next one of scheduled for November 12, so put it in your diary!
Phew! so busy, but so grateful. Last night I picked up two car loads of furniture from a very lovely lady, so the shop will be brimming with newbies in the coming weeks. Why not come in and say hello!
