More good works at Pomegranate Studio

IMG_0411

We had two days of glorious sunshine at the weekend which I took advantage of to repaint the summerhouse at the bottom of the (very short) garden at Pomegranate Studio.  I was using Annie Sloan chalk paint which I am assured sticks to everything without need of sanding and priming.  It shows the sort of place this is that when I ran out of painter’s tape to mask the glass I used what I had: several rolls of washi tape mainly from Tiger and Paperchase.  The problem is that now I rather like the gingerbread cottage look it gives.  Certainly the fresh green and the airforce blue (‘Aubusson’) seem to work well together.

The paint is fantastic, though.  It dried quickly and I think I might get away with one coat, at least for now.

The summerhouse is in a bad way needing a new roof covering, plus a good scrub out, but the structure is pretty sound.  The lovely Adirondack chairs I bought myself as a present were in good shape too.  I will post pictures as the makeover continues.

This is my Westie, Hedy, who was on hand to help throughout.  But the end of the afternoon she was covered in blue paint although I thought I kept a close eye on her.  Miraculously it washed off when she had a bath.  Another plus for the chalk paint.

  1. Yes the Annie Sloan paint does cover everything. We have covered several pieces of furniture with it, to great effect. I didn’t know you could use it outside though. I love the washi tape windows, but I think you are going to have to remove it sadly. Perhaps you could reapply with a new batch once all the painting is finished (if you decide on a second coat). Your little dog is darling.
