Less Is More

This beautiful Ottoman was dropped into my shop last week.

It was actually made by the customer’s brother for his mother. It is such a useful piece of furniture, but painted in a slightly yellowed white gloss paint it was in need of some re-invention.

I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ in Paris Grey and added my Neemrana Border stencil around the edges in Old White. We discussed the possibility of adding more stencilling but sometimes, less is definitely more.

I could have sold this piece to three different customers. Partly because it looks so lovely, but also because it really is such a useful piece of furniture.TRUNK3TRUNK4TRUNK2
