I may not be visiting Paris anytime soon,
but I now have a Paris grey table.
Chalk paint was a nice experiment,
no headache-inducing odours.

I said goodbye to my regular morning job
a month or so ago,
& I'm  in the honeymoon stage
of being a full-time freelancer & free spirit.
Getting to paint a table,
 sort a cupboard,
pop over to pilates
in between jobs
in the middle of a quieter day
if I so wish. 

If you fancy a virtual escapade to Paris,
you can pop over here.

Full time to do beautiful things, Rebecca. We live once, my friend. I love the table in parisian grey, and I love the soundtrack.
We have to go to Paris.
Have a lovely weekend
PD. I want to see the table finished :)

I love Paris grey! Getting ready to paint my kitchen something similar. Love Vanessa Paradis too! Ohh la la.

Thank you nines for the sweet encouragement
- it's true, though, an ever-growing urge
to also have more time for that,
to focus more fully on what matters
& makes the heart sing.
It felt like the right time.
I'm sure the table will appear here & there
in future posts :)
I'm giving it another lick
of matt varnish next,
otherwise it won't tolerate
messy fingers :) x

What a lovely surprise to see you over here,
we go back a long while :)
Thank you so much for saying that,
it made me so happy.
Wishing you a lovely springtime over there,
I'm sure your hands are already
covered in that delicious soil :) xx

The tone is so perfect,
like a dreamy, grey cloud
softly blending into Paris rooftops :)
Vanessa Paradis is one of my faves
- someone whose music
always makes me *feel*
and whisks the mind to Paris :)
Good luck with the kitchen!
We need to tackle ours, too,
the paint has really yellowed over the years...

I already knew the problem about the finger (but I have assumed that you knew too) It need wax or varnish. I don't know if I'm really fan of this kind of painting or I prefer the traditional matte or satiny, Rebecca. But we have to try, don't you think? Is handy to have those lovely colors without having to mix.
