pink sewing box

the sewing box - started here....finished during May half term but just plonked in spare room and forgot about!! Need to cover a lampshade to go on top of it.
Painted in Cath Kidston, Nursery Pink and drawer lined with CK antique roses wallpaper (thank you Wendy for the piece of white, knew I'd put it to good use xx!!)

The inside is painted with CK apple green...I bought that with the plan to paint my freecycled (last year, really must get a shake on!!) dresser, but it is far too green!!

So thats one thing off the to paint list painted - lots more to go!!

Oh, well done. It looks great, and will be really practical as well as pretty.

I've just bought some lovely blue paint for a project of mine - a shade called 'bleu indigo', which is just perfect for the kind of cornflower blue I was searching for.

Hi Claire, fabby sewing box.
Read your previous post when you first bought the sewing box and saw that you have used Farrow & Ball paint on your cupboard. I have just bought an old fashioned kitchen unit and want to paint it, could you recomend a spesific type of F&B paint for furnature as I haven't used there paints before.
Luv Sophie xxx
PS thanks for your comment xx

It's so pretty - so, that must be just 39 things to go re the paint list... sorry, couldn't resist. Made me giggle anyway.
You should see my list - it's frightening how the unfinished projects build up, isn't it. xxx
