Fashion Friday – Cut Out Style.


Giovanna gets it right every time!


Let There Be Light.





Light filled spaces are on my mind right now.

Latest Painting Project – Linen Cupboard.

If I had the space this piece would be a keeper.

A vintage bow front cupboard over drawers makes the perfect linen cupboard.

The two shelves in the cupboard slide out easily so you can use the hanging rail to store shirts should you wish.

I call this my Ladurée cupboard as I chose a gorgeous mint green paint called Dried Moss which just perfect with the ornate brass handles.

The interior was painted using Country Grey.

The whole piece has been given a coat of clear wax then given an aged look with dark wax and light distressing.

Currently for sale £375.00

Fashion Friday – It’s All About The Skirt.

It’s all about the skirt this Friday (better late than never).

Latest Painting Projects.

If a chest of drawers has beautiful oval handles I just have to have them.

These are a case in point.

Hand painted using After Rain chalk paint, waxed and lightly distressed.

After a bit of elbow grease the brass handles came up a treat and they compliment the soft grey paint beautifully.

Now sold.

Another gorgeous set of drawers are these beauties.

They are very deep with lovely flush brass handles that again compliment the Duck Egg paint.

Particularly love the curved sides on this piece.

Waxed and moderately distressed.

Fashion Friday – Twirl Those Twillies.











Following Leandra Medine’s lead this morning with a bit of silk arm candy.

Latest Painting Projects.

I chose Nearly Black and Belgian Stone for this elegant sideboard.

Belgian Stone, as I’ve mentioned before, is one of my favourite colours, a lovely grey/green that compliments any gold or brass hardware.

Perfect for this piece.

What I also love about this sideboard is that the centre drawer has a cutlery compartment.

One of the things I look for most when buying a table is the legs.

This table has beautifully shaped legs that pull out to form a fabulous dining table to seat 8 people.

I painted the top using Nearly Black chalk paint then protected it with a couple of coats of clear matt varnish.

For the legs I chose Duck Egg which when distressed compliments the mahogany wood underneath.
