Shabby Coastal Style


Shabby Coastal Style from Cheryl at Beachcomber in Australia:

hi was your weekend?

gorgeous weather here feels like spring. daylight savings finishing and gaining an extra hour was nice on a lazy sunday.
we saw a great movie this weekend i recommend to all… “the best exotic marigold hotel”. loved everything about it and i think you will too, if you haven’t seen it already.

this is the look i’m liking at the moment. white on white with a touch of aqua and faded roses. a white sheet thrown over a sofa that needs recovering works well and a shabby old bench i found and gave a quick coat of paint becomes a coffee table.

& bella making herself at home.

    hi.. it’s just an acrylic water based paint over grey weathered timber, done lightly so some of the timber shows through. i’m in australia, i don’t think we have chalk paint here. i look the look of it & the colours but i’m not sure what it’s like to use. cheryl :)

    Hi Cheryl,
    Love your beach cottage room.
    I’m renovating a house and plan to do a beach cottage theme.
    What type of paint did you use on the coffee table?
    I’ve seen alot of people use Annie Sloan chalk paint, but I heard latex can also be used.
    What is your favourite?
