Latest Painted Furniture

Happy New Year!!!

I am itching to get started on some exciting projects for January that include a large mirrored cabinet, blanket chests with a topper cushion, Victorian pine dresser just to name a few.

For now I thought I’d post the last few pieces I finished at the end of last year which I managed to squeeze in whilst finishing commission projects.

This particular piece didn’t hang around long, an Edwardian dressing table painted in Autentico’s Casa Blanca and given a lightly distressed finish.

The handles were a real feature and polished up a treat.

I have a similar one in stock that I’m thinking of painting a pretty grey/mauve colour.

These are Victorian curved drawers that I felt would suit a country style home so painted the drawers in one of my favourite colours, Autentico’s Belgian Stone and the top using Annie Sloan’s Graphite.

They are now sold but will definitely use this colour scheme again.

Couldn’t resist this sweet mirror which I converted into a chalkboard.

It sold just before Christmas and made the perfect gift.

This lovely dressing table was fun to paint. I decided to make a chalkboard piece so painted and waxed the white sections and the black paintwork can be used to label the contents of the drawers or simply to doodle messages.

The crystal handles add a splash of glamour.

A great piece of furniture for a bedroom.

Vintage china is another passion of mine so I just couldn’t pass up on this pretty Shelley tea set.

Perfect to mix and match with any existing tea set whilst also being a collectable item.

Again, another beautiful tea set, this time manufactured by Royal Crown Derby.

A delicate pattern in gorgeous blue.

Finally a commission piece, a vintage French bed that I painted using Autentico’s Casa Blanca paint that was given a distressed look.

More painted pieces to follow in the coming weeks.

Hope you all have a great start to 2014!
