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.

Chalk paint and decoupage.

Almost finished


Soon, very soon, the armchair will be finished. Just some work on the back of the back and fastening the fabric under the chair. This armchair is moving to my younger daughter. It took a while before I found a fabric with pattern and color that she would approve of.

The piping

Perhaps 6 more hours...
Actually, the color is so…fresh? Don’t you agree?
