Took my RSN Certificate crewelwork project to the framers today. I even got compliments from the framer on my mounting 😊 and we discussed the mounting process. I hadn’t realised how much money I would save by mounting it myself. The hard work literally paid off! Just under two weeks to wait now until I can pick it up! @inlijstenjandartbreda
I stepped out of my comfort zone painting this piece because as much as I love this style my need for perfection has kept me from attempting it. But as I painted I began to see that the flaws only added more character that distressing alone couldn't give me. I purposely used water as I painted to draw out the tannins in the wood grain and it worked. Bleed through has never looked so pretty. I know it's not a style everyone likes but this girl is mine and she's everything I love about vintage and antiques. Wise Owl Gray Linen, Ecru and some dry brushing with Sea Salt. Perfectly imperfect 💕#wiseowlpaint#wiseowlretailer#jacobean#antique#vintagefurniture#handpainted#handpaintedfurniture#imperfect#frenchcountrystyle

The gorgeous Jacobean manor home, Blickling Hall in Norfolk, England. A house and garden owned by the Boleyn family existed on the property in the late 1400’s. It is said that Anne Boleyn was born there in 1501. In the early 1600’s, after the Boleyn home fell into ruin, this gorgeous manor home was built.

H I S T O R Y ~ Steeped in history, Dorfold is very much a family home for the Roundell family, full of childhood memories and ancestral treasures such as our beloved Clock Tower, recently renovated and now a working time keeper for future generations.
