Painted tables and Pampas grass

Read in Swedish: Färdigmålade bord och pampasgräs

We had two old tables which I decided to paint and to have them outside, in our garden. First white  primer paint...

Then I sketched a pattern on the tables with a pencil and started to paint with colours I found in our store room...

Next step was to make these illustrations first with chalk and then with silver colour.

From one thing to another...
I really like those lovely high white "feather dusters" looking a little bit like reed. I'm not completely sure but it seems to be "Pampas grass" or Cortaderia selloana in Latin. They're quite common here as decoration in the gardens. On my wish list!

Best wishes!
