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.
