Sadly no. I have not been to Provence lately, but a girl can always dream can't she? In this case Provence refers to the Annie Sloan chalk paint colour I have used lately. With a rather happy result, if I may say so...?
I have had this old bookcase, inherited from hubby's grandmother, in our hallway for ages. The hallway is narrow, and so is the bookcase, making it work perfectly in the rather confined space.
It houses my ever expanding collection of decorating magazines, and does the job beautifully. Apart from its rather dreary "boring brown" colour. Now you may recall I very nearly "declared war" against the "bb" in my house last summer, after having discovered the aforementioned Annie Sloan paints.
Last August I painted our dining table in Cricket, which really is Provence (heavily) diluted with Old White. Leaving me with nearly a whole litre of straight Provence, to do with as I please. Above you can testify the result. Below is the starting point. I think I rather like Provence. And there is still a bit of it left in the pot...
