Mostly upcycling furniture

Heres a lovely mirror bought from homesense but it was the wrong colour so I annie sloan it in graphite and then didnt distress it but just varnished it with a matt varnish. Now in our living room.

This mirror is in our hall. Bought a large gold frame from SueRyder Nettlebed sales for £50. Then re mirrored it for £30 and painted two coats of country grey annie sloan and distress and wax. When i repaint the hall white it will stand out more and if i prefer i can always paint over it in the graphite colour which i really like too.



Like this one, seen i. A mag! And it looks like our bathroom so i may do a mirror like this for our bathroom too! I ll need another pot of graphite paint though...





Two old oak dining chairs which i picked up for free locally. Painted in annie sloan Aubusson blue. With old white under. Now i ve recovered the seat in Laura ashley Dalton Franch Grey fabric and done the other of the pair. I ll be selling them i think as we dont have room for them.... Any takers?
