Thought I’d write this post whilst I’m waiting for couriers to arrive with the next load of vintage goodies.
These chests of drawers are being shipped to a lovely lady who wanted a similar sized pair painted in the same colour.
I had already painted this first chest in Belgian Stone chalk paint which she loved and worked with her colour scheme.
Both chests were painted in the lovely grey/green chalk paint then waxed and given a lightly distressed finish.
All sets of handles needed some elbow grease to bring them back to their former glory and it was worth it.
There’s something lovely about owning a dressing table.
A piece of furniture that can be used to display all your favourite personal pieces such as photos, jewellery, perfume.
This dressing table was painted in Almond chalk paint, waxed and given a lightly distressed finish.
It has beautiful drop handles that cleaned up a treat.
I currently have four more dressing tables in stock, please enquire if you’d like to know more.
The next pair of dining tables have been painted using Belgian Stone chalk paint on the legs.
It has to be my favourite colour as it works with so many colour schemes.
Again waxed and distressed finish.
Both have since sold but I do have another extendable dining table with gorgeous legs in stock waiting to be painted.
I love painting this style of sideboard in black paint.
It really transforms it into a statement piece of furniture and black is the perfect colour to display glass, mirror, porcelain.
I chose Nearly Black chalk paint then gave it a coat of dark wax which gives the black paint a richer, glossier finish.
It had to be distressed of course so that the beautiful mahogany wood could shine through.
Now sold but I buy pieces like this all the time.
Please drop me a line if you’d like to be added to my furniture sourcing book.
This sweet rocking chair was a commission job for a customer.
She wanted it painting white with a little distressing so I chose Casa Blanca chalk paint.
It will look gorgeous in her granddaughter’s nursery.
Lots of pieces are being delivered today and next week ready for painting, including dressing tables, wardrobe, bureau, chairs, Edwardian drawing room suite, Pembroke table, cabinet, chest of drawers.
If you’d like to see any photos before I paint so you can request a particular colour just drop me a line or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next time.
