Hand Painted Furniture Projects

Whilst I’m waiting for paint to dry I thought it’s about time I updated my blog on recent painting projects.

This was originally a glass fronted bookcase that was desperate for a new lease of life so I decided to revamp it as a cabinet. I did this by painting the exterior in Autentico’s Belgian Stone (a particular favourite colour of mine) and complimented the interior with Autentico’s Ice Cream. As with all my pieces it was then finished with a clear wax and I gave it a lightly distressed finish.

I then added a glass peach handle which just adds a pop of colour. Incidentally I could do with one if these myself looking at my glass collection!

This next piece was a commission piece for a teenager’s bedroom. The brief was pastels so I chose these lovely colours, painted the main body white and lightly distressed it. Again, all Autentico paint colours.

The client was really pleased, particularly as her great-grandfather had originally made the piece!

Now this stunning walnut dressing table simply needed a polish as it was too beautiful to paint. It’s the delicate legs that really attracted me to it.

This sweet nursing chair would have so many tales to tell I’m sure.

I painted the undercoat in a pretty lilac colour then added a white coat over the top so that when I distressed the paintwork the lilac colour shows through.

Perfect for a little girl’s bedroom.

A commission piece for a client wanting a bookcase for her daughter’s bedroom. This time it was painted to match their current paintwork which happened to be a Farrow & Ball colour.

This lovely chest of drawers featured in my last post and it sold so quickly that once I saw another set I had to have them! These are painted using Autentico’s Silver and Ice Cream on the inside of the drawers.

It’s the regal style handles that are the real feature of this piece.

Ahh, now these lovelies are floating at the moment as I don’t know if I can bear to part with them!

They are a set of beautiful Victorian curved drawers on casters.

I chose a fabulous paint by Autentico called Winter Sky, which is a lovely blue/sage green colour that makes the handles really stand out.

Apologies for the terrible quality of this next photo but hopefully you can see something of this lovely Edwardian wardrobe. A commission piece I sourced and painted for a client and it really is lovely.

So there we have it. Back to more painting and I shall post again soon.

I hope you like them, Sally x
