~ Off My Chest ~





My mind flows back and forth when I see something that inspires me. Lately I have come across images of drawers that have been recovered and I am thinking how I can put my own touches to a set [that I am yet to get my hands on!]. Happy Monday!

  2. Hi there Simone, this is exactly what I have been planning for a dressing table I found a few weeks ago. I have just been searching for the perfect fabric - no luck yet; sure something will come along soon! Love the images of your shop; wish I was in brisbane so I could pop in!...
    Have a lovely day,

  8. hi simone,

    beautiful images. i saw a chest years ago in a shop. it was painted ivory and had scraps of wallpaper adhered and then the whole pieces was glazed in a brown. really lovely and always stayed in my mind.

  10. Clever Simone.
    This looks like a LOT of work.
    Hoping that you've enjoyed every minute of the store and you're still able to sit back and [literally] smell the roses.

  15. Interesting! I am not much of a "chintz" person, but I can see many other possibilities. Hmmmm....I have an old chest in my studio...maybe I won't paint it...maybe I'll try...

  16. Hi Simone
    I collect old small fabric covered drawers mainly A4 size drawers, they look so nice on your work desk.
    I recently saw a tallboy which had been painted and each drawer front had a different vintage wallpaper.
