Latest Painting Project – Occasional Table.

Tables with drawers are such a good investment when it comes to furniture.

Anything that has a dual purpose is a hit for me.

This lovely piece serves as a table, drawers plus has an additional storage shelf for whatever you wish to place on top.

I chose Autentico’s Earth Stone chalk paint for the exterior and complimentary French Grey for the inside of the drawers, finished with clear wax and subtle hints of gold gilding wax.

I also changed the handles to a beautiful cornflower blue glass pair from Anthropology which really make the piece.

Lightly distressed finish to enhance the carving details.

Currently for sale – £145.00.


Coming Soon – Faux Flowers!


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.
