Shabby chic

Steve was the first to suggest a shabby chic interior for the bus. Ali would like lots of different types of wood. I want neat clear lines and colours and to show off the very expensive oak trim making the oak features to be VERY visible.

I have spent the last week turning a beautiful wooden chest of draws into a shabby chic chest for the upstairs bedroom. 10GBP from Cancer Research shop in Wisbech!! Hampered by below freezing temperatures both myself and the paint were slow to work. However, with heater on full blast for a couple of hours each day I could add a layer of paint a day.

The final coat, a rather gorgeous speedwell blue enamel paint which I had originally bought for the upstairs outside top deck.
