These roses were left over from Valentines Day, the leaves were dry and curly, the heads slightly droopy.. I went to throw them away and then realised although over a month old they were probably more beautiful now then fresh.
When fresh the roses were dark red now the papery petals have faded to cerise with bluish tones.
This chair was bought at a car boot sale about ten years ago for about £10, it was quite different then with orange wood and red velvet upholstery.
I painted the wood in Dulux satin Jasmine White, I then let it dry for a good week and rather than sandpaper to distress I use a paint scraper, I find this chips the paint away.
Living in a small house means corners need to be flexible this old pine table doubles up as a dressing table and desk.
