The staircase


For years I’ve been working on this staircase once in a while. It’s been my bad conscience for so long and I always apologise for how it looks when someone visits us. Today when a friend, who works with commercials, saw the staircase, she said it was the most beautiful she has ever seen. Hard to believe, but if more people say it is beautiful (which they actually do) I might believe them. So perhaps I won’t paint the staircase after all.


My big armchair


Today i brought home one of the two armchairs I bought a couple of weeks ago. It’s reupholstered and painted with Annie Sloan Chalkpaint. My, oh my, how big it is! I didn’t imagine it would be so big compared to the other dining chairs!

I’ve got a visitor…


…today at my workshop. It’s nice when old – and new – friends drop by. Anci – who is a master of painting with chalk paint – took this photo of me when I’m painting one of the two armchairs I bought the other day.

Student room 1


In a few hours a French student arrives to stay with us for 5 months. She’s going to study at the University of Boras. I hope she will like the room I have prepared for her. I have painted the iron bed, the desk, yes almost everything in the room with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Some decoupage and upholstery have I done, too.
