The beauty of this kind of decoration is that the looser you work, the better it will look. These panels and sideboard were influenced by the Charleston House, home of the Bloomsbury Group in Sussex, England, and painted by the fabulous Annie Sloan. She shares the beauty of this style below;

‘These designs were all painted freehand but I am not averse to using a few household items such as plates, mugs, and bowls to create shapes – the beauty of freehand, of course, is you get these fabulous charming wibbly lines. 

‘Remember that wobbly lines are a part of the charm of this type of design, and you’ll make life easier for yourself if you’re working on a textured “imperfect” surface rather than a freshly plastered wall.’
