Let me remind you of my inspiration...
So, how to get a mottled grey finish on this?
I haven't tried this before so it was pure experimentation.
Just need to tweak those faux candle tubes... but I think it's very much more Swedish Country Farmhouse fantasy dining chic!
And perhaps ever so slightly, er, rain tarnished galvanised zinc. Hmm...not quite what I set out trying to do...
Unfortunately we can't install this until the floor goes in due to the possibility of concussion as it dangles quite low. That's fine for over a dining table, not so good for the flooring guys.
Let me just show you our fabulicous boot sale find for this week. No, it's not a crate!
It's a beautiful traditional wool rug for the (husbands) master bedroom. There's no carpet in there as it was removed for health and safety reasons the very minute we set foot in here. My poor husband doesn't like walking on bare floorboards so he had taken two mismatched small rugs and laid them on the floor side by side. I found this behaviour disturbing and deeply upsetting. Obviously. (What is it with men?)
But the little mismatched rugs are history and we have one spanktacular large one in it's place. And it was only £7. Result!
|Perfectly clean and no moth holes this time!|
My daughter and I are heading up north for a week leaving the husband in charge of the cats. They've turned wild in the warm weather and only come home to be fed...
