Ok well you may remember from a previous blog I had chosen this sideboard.
So even though Andy didn't like it at first, he finally agreed it would compliment the look I was trying to acheive. (Andy has slightly more modern tendencies than me) we decide to buy it and lo and behold it's not made anymore. I spent half a day on the net to no avail :-( desperate to find somewhere that still could get it.
However my two lamps arrived and I love them.Thanks to desresdesign they are gorgeous.
So plan b am now deciding between these two side boards
The painted one been my favorite I have painted tester colours of farrow and ball paint
in the lounge I would love to paint all the wood, skirting door frames etc in fb french grey and the walls in fb old white with 2 walls being james white, the colour varies so much with the light and then I came across this blog which explained it all perfectly and I have made my mind up to go with those colours.
We have decided more or less on the sofa and have had some colour swatches from sofas and stuff and they have been narrowed down to two. So we need to get the wooden floor laid and get everything ordered.
Ordering furniture in itself is a huge challenge living in the highlands and the quotes for delivery vary immensely from 40 to several hundred pound !
Ok so watch this space to see if I can persuade Andy he thinks painting oak furniture is sacrilege, what are your thoughts on painting wood ?
