Latest Painting Projects – Bedside Tables.

Finding a pair of matching bedside tables is a quest in itself.

So when I saw these beauties I just had to have them.

They have beautiful decorative legs and square tops which are perfect on which to place a lamp, book, water glass, photo frame, the list goes on. Plus they also have a drawer each for extra storage.

I chose Autentico Brut chalk paint, a lovely mid grey and finished them with a coat of clear wax and very light distressing.

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.

Latest Painting Project – Vintage Duck Egg Chest of Drawers with Bone Handles.

This sweet chest of drawers would be the perfect storage solution for a bedroom.

With that in mind I chose Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg chalk paint and I also applied a pale grey wash over the top to create a limed effect.

Gently distressed and waxed finish.

I replaced the original handles with pretty bone handles.

Latest Painting Project – Vintage Beside Cabinet.

Bedside cabinets and tables are a popular request from my customers.

There’s something very romantic about vintage bedside cabinets.

This one in particular has lovely detail on the cupboard front and pretty reeded legs.

I chose Linen chalk paint as the base and applied an Almond wash over the top.

The inside I painted using Warm Grey, a beautiful lilac colour which adds a surprise element to the cabinet.

Latest Project – Glamorous Dressing Table.

It’s all about the proportions with this dressing table.

Such an elegant piece of furniture that I couldn’t envisage it being distressed so I decided to paint it using Nearly Black chalk paint then finish with a clear matt varnish rather than wax.

All about the glamour.

The triple bevelled mirror is adjustable and it offers plenty of storage with the five drawers.
