Decorating

So we recently redecorated our living room.

As lovers of the old faithful magnolia and white I was able to inject some colour with our furniture.
First to get a make over was our coffee table.

What started as an all over cream table with dark wood top certainly catches the eye now.

The colours I used are both from Homebase and called: Village Green & Blackberry Burst

The table cloth was made from material I bought in Dunelm Mills and its called Berridale Plum
I also plan to make some cushion covers with the same material.

New d├ęcor gives me an opportunity to play with new art work. Keen to create my own thing I went in search of the right size canvas. The right size doesn't exist however I did happen across this framed picture in The Range, House Rules
The shape and size is perfect for my wall and it was in the sale!

First step was to cover the pre printed design and frame with a couple of coats of gesso, I use Galleria

The frame was then painted brilliant white and I covered the inside of the frame with Johnstone's Seashell satin paint.

Using  Serif Craft Artist software Pretty birds were placed on backgrounds to match my new colour scheme.


I am really pleased with the final look. An added bonus being, I can update my five individual pictures as I like.

Take care
Sam
