Fashion Friday – Back To Black.


Latest Painting Project – Victorian Sideboard Painted Nearly Black.

This sideboard isn’t just a sideboard, this is a thing of beauty.

It has gorgeous curved drawers, intricate carved features and plenty of storage for any room in your house.

I painted the exterior in Nearly Black chalk paint then covered with a coat of black wax and lightly distressed the paintwork.

The interior I painted using Belgian Stone chalk paint and clear wax.

Currently for sale – £325.00

Latest Painting Project – Marble Washstand.

This lovely oak washstand would look at home in a bathroom, kitchen or hallway.

I chose Nearly Black chalk paint to compliment the grey marble and to ensure the beautiful bright blue tiles popped.

The interior was painted using French Linen chalk paint.

Waxed and gently distressed finish.

Currently for sale – £195.00

Latest Painting Project – Vintage Bureau With Secret Drawers.

I have painted a number of bureaus now and this one in particular was a delight as I discovered three secret drawers I didn’t know existed.

On opening the bureau lid I realised that what I thought was carving detail was in fact two pull out drawers, genius.

Then when I opened the small inner cupboard door the top piece that again I thought was simply detail also pulled out to reveal a drawer.

The perfect piece in which to store passports, important documents or love letters!

I know, I know, who sends love letters anymore?

Anyway I chose Nearly Black chalk paint for the exterior and Nautique for the interior.

A beautiful contrast in colours.

Waxed and lightly distressed finish.

Currently for sale – £425.00

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.

Fashion Friday – Black Friday.







Well it is Black Friday after all.

Latest Painting Project – Bureau.

This particular bureau has been sold to lady who is going to use it as a dressing table.

This particular colour combination is popular so I used the same again which is Nearly Black for the exterior and Nautique (a duck egg) for the interior.

Always lovely to have that element of surprise when you open a piece of furniture.

Now sold but please contact me if you’d like a piece of furniture sourcing.
