Painting mishap!

Having lived for 8 years on a couple of narrowboats,  Moored and worked with my ex-husband, Neil, in Welford Marina, I have dabbled in boat painting, both inside and out.

Roses and Castles, signwriting and painting the outside of a narrowboat is done with enamel paint.  
Excellent paint can be bought from. Craft Master
A fascinating range of colours for classic cars, traction engines, trains, boats and more.
Let the experimentation begin.

My experimentations began with a beautiful oak chair which I decided to undercoat and then in the style of the pallet wood experiments cover with lots of different coloured paint which I’ve purchased for the bus, then stress and distress it.  Very proud of the sanding and priming I show Ali ( my brother). Whoops I had misunderstood he wanted the chair restoring to its original woodiness not messed about with and DEFINATELY not PINK.  Steve cut me some lengths of pallet wood and I began again.
