Planning, sanding, spraying, painting, stitching and pom-ing – this is what a mash-up looks like…
We’ve sent in our design for the Out There Interior Pimp My French challenge and we’d love you to vote for us.
If there’s one thing we love at Mollie Makes, it’s a materials mash-up! We wanted to give the bench a makeover that represented the personalities of our team, whilst paying homage to the creative brand we work on, so we knew it had to include: neon pink (our favourite colour), chunky stitching (we’re all about the yarn) and pom poms (’cause if you liked it, then you shoulda put a pom on it).
We used Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint for the grey base, Rustoleum spray paints for the neon pink accents and gold drawer interior and used Audrey Smit’s rose design to cross stitch the drawer in bright tapestry yarns. We love the idea of taking a technique traditionally reserved for fabrics and super-sizing it so it could be stitched directly onto wood.
Finally, we sprayed the handles white, wrapped them with yarn and decorated with a few pom poms. Ta-da!
