It’s finally here, all please kneel before the true glory of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint; revealed through the resurrection of my pine towel rail. A rail that has not graced any discerning house since 1979 returns to my guest bedroom. Yes that’s right excited readers-the towel rail is complete and in use. Clearly now this done nothing will ever be the same again. I have finally (but one month after I began) completed a project. Yes Annie Sloan your paint is beautiful, yes you are extremely talented at what you do, the effects your paint can achieve are sublime and thought provoking; but really the testament to your skill lies in my guest bedroom-as I, mother of one, carer of puppy and cat, sole adult in charge for longer than should be allowed, and delayer of all things whenever possible, has finally finished something. I thank you. There is far more to this towel rail than meets the eye. Annie’s hash tag #morethanpaint appears to be correct.
You must excuse me now readers as while the guest room looks wonderful, my sitting room (and dining room and hallway and kitchen) now need to be reconfigured-it turns out Maj C is not keen on making the entire ground floor “my studio” but I’m sure once he sees the towel rail he will change his mind? Surely?
A few arty close ups for you (these are the kind of shots I shall be saving when I start my Rascal and Roses Coffee Table Book).
