Latest Painting Project – Deep Lavender Antique Bow Chest of Drawers.

So after a wonderful summer I’ve picked up the paintbrush again and got busy.

Here is a beautiful bow chest of drawers with the prettiest oval brass handles I ever did see.

I used a pale lavender as a base then applied a deep lavender over the top.

I got to work on the distressing as I wanted the paler lavender colour to show through.

Finished with both clear and black wax.

The oval brass handles on this piece are stunning and look even more gorgeous against the blue.

Carved cabriole legs.

Waxed and lightly distressed finish.

Latest Painting Project – Vintage Triple Wardrobe.

Vintage wardrobes are fabulous pieces as they are such good value, brilliantly made and often dismantle into various pieces so you can easily manoeuvre them upstairs.

This particular triple wardrobe is all of the above.

Has original bevelled edge oval mirror, oodles of storage which include deep drawers with flush brass handles, tie rack, hanging rail plus extra hooks and dismantles into four pieces.

I chose Elephant Grey for the exterior and Nautique for the interior.

Waxed and lightly distressed finish.

It is amazing how paint can transform a piece of traditional furniture to a beautiful, more up-to-date style and non more so than this dressing table.

I chose Earth Stone paint, a lovely grey/beige colour that suits so many colour schemes and completed the look with a waxed and distressed finish.

Lovely bow drop handles, elegantly tapered legs on castors and oval mirror with original aged glass.

Wednesday Wish List – Brass Bed

Brass beds seem to suit most bedroom styles from country cottage chic to modern minimalism.

Particularly love this pair of brass hospital beds found at The Cuttlefish, Mousehole, Cornwall.

Not something I come across often on my buying travels but I would snap up a matching pair in a flash.

Floral Friday – Bedding

Floral bedding can be romantic, modern, fresh and so many other things.

If you have a blank canvas for a bedroom, floral bedding can be a good place to start.

It is one of the easiest ways to add colour and pattern to your bedroom.

The bedding could be the statement piece of the room, or it could blend into the walls with similar wallcoverings, or it could compliment the room with patterns such as stripes that marry well with florals.

There are so many ways to works with florals that suit all tastes.
