Drop Leaf Tables.

One of my next painting projects is a lovely oak drop leaf table.

It has great proportions when folded as the leaf almost reaches the floor covering the legs making it a stylish piece of furniture on which to display lamps etc.

Here are a few styling ideas for drop leaf tables:

Styling Ideas For Black Furniture.

I currently have a beautiful Victorian sideboard for sale painted Nearly Black (see previous post for more details) and it got me thinking how much I love painting with this colour.

Dark furniture can make such an impact in a room and really isn’t as daunting as you might think.

Here are a few inspirational images to show how amazing black furniture can look.

Colour Inspiration For My Next Project.

New Arrival – Fabulous 1920’s/30’s Walnut Cupboard.

This gorgeous walnut cupboard sang to me from across the room.

It was the shape of the legs and fold out cupboard doors that contrasted with the half circle handles that really caught my eye.

I whisked it off to my antiques restorer who did an amazing job of stripping it back and under his experienced eye he informed me that the piece is extremely well made as it has a solid back, the drawers are mahogany, solid walnut top, sides and shelves.

It’s virtually identical to a Heals piece of furniture but without the makers mark (or price tag!).

A charming piece I think you’ll agree.

Currently for sale – £325.00
