I have been well and truly felled by a virus this week, so I've been operating on very low batteries. Luckily I'd got most of my stuff ready for the sale on Saturday. This little cupboard has been in our shed for about three years. It was white, grubby and lacked hinges. But a coat of Farrow and Ball and some wallpaper, and tlc from my Dad (hinge angel) has worked wonders.

I love the wavy edge and the tiny brass catch. It also has an enamel toothbrush holder on one side - a very ingenious design. But this post isn't really about my cupboard, it's about a very exciting discovery: Annie Sloan paint is finally available in a local shop! I have read about this wonder paint on so many blogs, notably Thriftwood, and Fading Grace (thank you ladies) but I could not find any nearby. Finally, yesterday, I tracked some down:
It is amazing. I have already coated a stool, and it went on like a dream. There is now a small table waiting, and plenty more besides. No preparation, I can't quite believe it. And it was cheaper than F&B, too.
