Latest Painting Project – Duck Egg Kitchen Cabinet.

If you’re looking to add a pop of colour to your kitchen then this vintage cabinet could be the answer.

I chose Autentico’s Nautique for the exterior and Annie Sloan’s French Linen for the interior.

Waxed and distressed finish.

Glass fronted cupboards provide storage for glasses, mugs and of course shelves for your decorative plates.

This piece would also look great placed on top of a sideboard or chest of drawers.

Currently for sale – £185.00

Latest Painting Project – Cream Occasional Table.

How many times have you sat down with your glass of wine/cup of tea and thought “if only I had a small side table I could put this glass/mug”.

Well here is the answer to your problems, a beautiful vintage round table of perfect proportions.

Hand painted using a Linen chalk paint base then finished with an Almond chalk paint wash and protected with a couple of coats of clear wax.

Now sold but I shall definitely be doing more of the same.

Introducing Cobalt Blue Into Your Home.

I recently bought a new tote handbag in cobalt blue leather and it works with literally almost everything I wear, particularly white and tan.

(Incidentally it’s by Orciani, fabulous soft leather and not crazy prices).

Anyway it got me thinking about using cobalt blue paint on a piece of furniture and how it would sit within the home.

I came to the conclusion that I think it would sit pretty well and would add some wow factor to your space.

Previously I’d associated the colour with somewhere hot and glamorous like Santorini or Ibiza, with white washed walls and Ikat rugs but actually I think it sits just as well in a modern or traditional home.

My favourite piece is this bureau by Ralph Lauren below, hoping to emulate this look very soon..

Latest Painting Project – Cream & Taupe Painted Chest of Drawers.

This vintage chest of drawers is actually one of a pair so I opted for soft colours as I visualised them making a perfect pair of beside drawers for those with the space.

I chose Almond for the body and a bespoke taupe mix over the Almond base for the top.

Both parts have been given a coat of clear wax and the taupe piece I added a tiny bit of dark wax.

Lightly distressed finish.

Very pretty flower handles too.

I haven’t made a start on the other chest yet so this is available as a single piece but please enquire if you would like the pair.

Currently for sale – £275.00

Introducing The Colour Bright Green Into Your Home.

Terrified of using colour in your home?

A great way of introducing a bright colour into your home is through a piece of painted furniture.

The brighter the colour, the stronger the impact.

Painted furniture is the perfect way to enliven and modernise a space.

Bringing colour into your home creates interest and adds personality.

So this week I thought I’d jump in feet first with the colour bright green.

Here are some inspirational pics for you.
