Chair re-vamp

I painted this chair a while ago, but held off from finishing it until I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted something simple, pretty, easy, fairly subtle; I think I achieved it and am very happy with it now.

The 'roses' are stamped on with white emulsion undercoat, using the cut bottom of a Little Gem lettuce as a stamp. It's a lovely idea I saw somewhere on the internet, and imagine it can have all sorts of applications - cards are on thing that spring to mind, so will be giving that a go next time we have salad for supper!
