Can't see for looking....

Help !!! Have painters block, if there ever was such a thing. 
Am working on a small table and chairs, have coated the chairs in the first layer of Annie Sloan chalk paint in Chateau Grey. A lovely greeny grey colour, it is. Am struggling to settle on the top coat colour...I keep swaying to Old Ochre, then the feeling of wanting to be a bit more radical creeps in and before I know it I'm ooooooing and ahhhhhhing..
Then I'm on here, avoiding the chairs altogether. 
Then I make a coffee, avoiding again, I hear you say...
Right, enough talk, time for action.
Errr, here I go........
I'm still going.....
Will be back in a little while, no doubt. 
Ooooo, is that the kettle boiling??

  1. Well, one chair now half painted.
    And I'm not so happy with it.
    Back to the drawing board.
    May not go for total coverage, what about the 'chippy' look ?? hmmm - I find myself really drawn to super heavily distressed pieces.....what to do, what to do.....
    Do something, thats what :)
