About 3 years ago I decided to go back to something I used to love doing…and actually made some money on when I had my shop.

Most of my life I’ve been a maniac with a pot of paint and a brush. Especially since my parents let me design and decorate my bedroom aged about 11. Even Dad helped my paint the funrniture.

Though I’ve only watched Kacha for about 3 years, I’ve been a user of Annie Sloan chalk paint for decades.

In our last house we had a narrow bending staircase up to the 3rd floor and the boys’ bedrooms. I ripped up the carpet, painted the entire thing with Annie Sloan French Grey and then decoupaged each step with olde worlde black and white images of exotic animals. The boys loved it.

Today I was watching the video below. Himself is on E.R. again and had been out half the night so he was stood down for the morning and forced to view my viewing.

I said : Ooh. That Antoinette is a pretty colour. How’d you like living with pink furniture?

Him : Why are you asking? Does it matter what I think?

Me: Of course. I’ll listen to every opinion you have.

Him : And then totally ignore me!

As if. Tut.

OK. I’ll keep the pink to one small side table and not inflict the kitchen dresser, resplendent in pink and gold and cutesy decoupage on a 3 quarter male household…..?
