Today I would like to share with you a Laura Ashley 'Knock Off'. It's my copy of the Palladian Wooden Panel that they are selling at the moment online for £45 down from £65. I cannot remember what it was in Euros but £45 equates to about €60. My knock off was free!!
|Taken in Laura Ashley shop|
I started with this wooden panel from an old kitchen door. I found it exactly like this lying unwanted in someone's garage, it was free to a good home!
I had to start by removing the dry glue which I presume once attached it to the door frame.
I gave it one coat of ASCP in Duck Egg blue and distressed it a little.
I then stencilled it using a sponge and some ASCP in Original.
I removed and re-stuck the stencil using some Frog tape several times until I got a result I was happy with and gave it a coat of clear wax.
The Laura Ashley version....
The Sweet Auburn version...
It's a gift for a friend who is looking for some artwork for her new duck egg blue sitting room!
