Bonjour from a warmer SW France,

What a difference some warmth and sunshine makes in terms of motivation and the ability to get some painting done.

On Sunday we purchased a fabulous bureau, which although smaller than the one that you see in the photo above, it is vintage and the style is along the lines of louis XVI.

It was varnished wood and I was keen to start using a can of Annie Sloans chalk paint in graphite which is a lovely blue black.

The plan is two coats of paint, shabby the edges and then apply a dark wax.

Note I have started the exterior but have not made a decision re the inside of the bureau as I am torn between a grey blue colour....

or picking something similar to the colour in the first photo ....decisions, decisions! Back to the painting I must go.

à demain, Leeann x
