weathered wicker, linen & greywashing our front door


Over the last few months I have been giving our entryway a little makeover. We first replaced
the front door with a Tassie Oak, half french door & hung a lovely soft linen Myriad curtain panel I bought from Tricia at Rough Linen


I first stained the door a maple colour & am now in the process of limewashing it with a soft grey. This took some convincing at the local paint store ~ they have never heard of anyone greywashing their front door before but the owner kindly made me up some samples & custom
mixed a colour. I'm not sure how many coats of greywash I will use but I can slowly add more until I get the perfect soft grey look I love. The last coat will be a waterproof sealer to protect the timber.


Beautifully light & airy, the linen curtain catches the breeze on a warm spring day...


This grey washed mirror is a favourite of mine ~ both for the gorgeous shape & soft colour...



Worn, weathered wicker... I've had this chair for about twelve years now &it just keeps aging beautifully. The seat would giveway if anyone sat on it which is why it is always filled with pillows!


 These cushion covers made from vintage linen & taupe ticking are still not finished... 
 haven't decided whether I prefer the tie closure or a button & fabric loop. The tie I made from the vintage linen looks and feels little stiff.
