Two New Dressers









I have had busy few weeks, lots of custom orders, which is great, and not enough time to update my Etsy shop. The work has quieted down a bit now which gives me time to work on pieces for the online shop and those I can share with you via this blog. I have had the coral piece for a while but have only now managed to do some proper photography.
The yellow piece has been painted with milk paint and protected with Danish oil. By mistake I put a wet glass on it and was terrified that it would ruin my hard work, but as the water dried off the mark was completely gone, like it was never there. Danish oil saved the day!

Ooops, it is Saturday and I am a day late with the "Colourful Friday" post. But better late than never n'est-ce pas? I chose red this week because, whether paired with another colour or alone, it is powerful and strong and as such it dominates the space and objects it surrounds.
