Jenny Loves Retro

I fell in love with this sweet little table while I was out with Noah a couple of weeks ago. It was the perfect thing for me to experiment on, with all the geometric pattern ideas i’d been wanting to paint lately. Munchkin was a good sport, as he was made to walk with me, as we strapped the table in to the pushchair and made our way home (another reason I need to pass my test soon).

I started with a coat of primer on the top.DSC_0916Then I drew out my pattern and began to mask some of the lines, ready to get the fun started.DSC_0921DSC_0931DSC_0934DSC_0935Slowly it started coming together and after a week or so of doing a bit every evening, my geometric beauty was finished!DSC_0950DSC_0953DSC_0957I kind of love it. I also, as with everything else, want to keep it. But alas, it is going to it’s new home tonight.

Patterned projects

My lovely, sad-sack of a dressing table was slowly becoming a permenant fixture, bashed by Noah’s toy hammer, crammed full of phone chargers, make-up and other junk drawer goodies. So, I decided to take the plunge and paint it a couple of weeks ago. I had some left over paints from previous projects and chose a gemetric design for the front of the drawers.

DSC_0069DSC_0745DSC_0746Although I was sad to see it go, it’s now enjoying a new home in a very nice couple’s seaside pad, in the lovely Portobello. It being the first thing I have ever sold, I was more than a little bit excited and went out and found my next project, a mid- century sideboard/dresser, in need of some love and colour. I’m itching to get started.

I’ve got a thing at the moment for gemoetric designs and feel like embracing all kinds of colourful loveliness. Check out these beauties…
