|Is that a little Jonathan Adler inspired makeover happening on my veranda?|
Regular readers will know that I am not averse to a paint brush. I love to get my hands on some beautiful but decrepit old thing and give it a colourful revamp. Hell, I even read colour specifiers in the bath! I just don't get bland. Or neutrals. I have a like-minded mate over at Salvation Jane, who also loves nothing better than to break out a sample pot and indulge in a little hue. Only she doesn't do orange - but that is a whole other story...
So, the good lady Salvation and I were very chuffed to be approached to team up and do a bit of a colourwork at the next Magnolia Square event, to be held at The Centre in Ivanhoe on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 August - yikes, that's only ten days away!
The theme of this Magnolia Square is colour - so together, Jane and I are putting on a bit of a side-show to demonstrate how we like to 'upcycle' (apparently that's a euphemism for tarting things up!) with paint, paper and, of course, fabric.
We'll be there both days for a chat, so do pop along. You can read about it here.
And you can see how I got along trying to get Jane to work with a little orange!
