Colour Recipes Annie SloanHello, happy Sunny sunday to you, no good at sewing? Well I am back as promised with my second book giveaway of the weekend (check out yesterdays lovely book here). Annie Sloan‘s ‘Colour Recipes for Painted Furniture‘. This clever book will teach you new and traditional ways to make over your old furniture and interior walls.

With a collection of 40 step by step projects ranging from painting tables, chairs and lamps to ceilings, walls and doors, there is sure to be something in here to catch your imagination and help you transform something tired into something amazing! Annie knows all about teaching techniques for paint, gilding, wax and stencils. My favourite project is the black bureau (above) with the bright inside, another way for me to conceal some hot pink in the house, ha?!
