Latest Project – Nursery Chair.

I was asked by a customer if I could source a suitable chair for her impending baby’s bedroom.

She already had a fabric in mind which was Peony & Sage’s beautiful Fudge Hare linen fabric but she didn’t want to use it all over so I suggested a few ideas and she opted for the one seen below.

I chose an Ian Mankin Olive linen with a natural linen to compliment the Hare fabric.

So sweet.

Latest Painting Project – Vintage Sideboard & Victorian Hall Chair.

Sideboards come in all sorts of shapes and sizes but one thing they all offer is fabulous storage space.

This hall chair had my name on it.

Odd chairs are such useful pieces to have around the home; to display your favourite cushion, somewhere to throw your post in the morning, an extra seat around the dinner table if required.

I chose Pigeon Grey paint for this chair, such a beautiful colour that would work with most colour schemes.

Waxed and distressed finish.

Paint The Town With Red Stripes.











I am waiting for a gorgeous Victorian slipper chair to be upholstered in a red linen stripe that I will post soon.

You can see from these images how versatile the colour red can be.

Latest Painting Projects.

There is something lovely about round and oval dining tables where everyone can talk to each other rather than being restricted to chatting to the person next to or opposite you, unless you choose to shout across the table or play musical chairs.

This particular antique table has a lovely carved stem and legs on castors which I painted using Earth Stone chalk paint and chose a complimentary colour for the top, Nearly Black paint.

Waxed and distressed finish then a buff to create a lovely sheen.

Seats 6 and is currently for sale at £275.00.

So this is my first bureau I’ve painted and I rather love it.

A perfect stylish solution for the home office and I could even see it in a bedroom or sitting room.

Again I chose another of my favourite paint colours, Nearly Black for the exterior and a contrasting colour of Duck Egg for the interior.

I gave the brass ring pull handles a good clean, waxed and distressed the wood so that the geometric pattern on the front of the drawers really came through.

This vintage sofa was beautiful as it was, so I decided to sell it either as it was or offer a re-upholstery service.

It actually sold as it was.

This cabinet is a home project.

I’ve always wanted a display cabinet to house all my glassware so I installed an LED lighting system and hey presto.


I bought a collection of Johnson Bros Rose Chintz pottery that sold to a very happy lady who collects floral tea sets.


This elegant style chair has been reupholstered using a Sanderson Manilla fabric and piped in black velvet.

A modern twist on a vintage chair.
