Latest Painting Project – Sideboard.

Another sideboard? I hear you say.

These pieces are proving to be rather popular and I understand why.

This particular piece would look great in a kitchen, dining room, sitting room or bathroom filled with towels and all the paraphernalia we need.

Original bevelled edge mirror.

I chose Belgian Stone for the exterior and Duck Egg for the interior.

These two colours compliment each other so well.

Lightly distressed and waxed finish.

Currently for sale £325.00

Wednesday Wish List – Velvet Sofa

I currently have a beautiful two seater sofa in stock waiting for it’s revamp (see below) and I’m currently obsessing over velvet sofas thinking how I may not be able to part with it once it’s finished…

Latest Painted Furniture Projects

It’s been a while since my last painted furniture post and I’ve been busy painting commission pieces recently so today I thought I’d grab a moment to update the blog.

I picked up a pair of these lovely single bed headboards and painted them in After Rain, a pretty grey/green colour.

Given a waxed and lightly distressed finish.

Would suit either a girl’s or boy’s bedroom with the neutral colour scheme.

Image

Image

This coffee table was transformed from being mahogany with a glass top to a lovely painted coffee table in Linen with a mirror top.

The paint really brings out the carved details.

Image

Image

Image

I knew as soon as I saw these drawers they had to painted Nearly Black.

The brass handles and the distressed finish really work against the paintwork.

Image

Image

The next two images are home projects for my daughter’s bedroom, apologies for the fuzzy instagram image.

Love this Annie Sloan yellow paint and the blue walls (Farrow & Ball) were painted over using a paint roller from the fabulous http://the-painted-house.co.uk/.

Addictive!

Image

Image

This beautiful glass fronted cabinet is so versatile, I mean we never have enough storage space do we?

I could imagine it in a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen or sitting room.

I chose Belgian Stone for the exterior, a lovely sludgy grey and Antique White for the interior to contrast.

Image

Image

Image

A useful kitchen chair painted in French Linen.

Image

A few vintage finds:

Image

Image

Image

Again, another piece that is extremely versatile, would suit a bedroom, kitchen or hallway is the demi lune table.

Painted in Paris Grey, waxed and distressed finish.

Image

Beautiful set of vintage serpentine drawers hand painted in Paris Grey.

These are so sweet and would be perfect for a bedroom.

Image

Image

Fabulous chiffonier painted in French Linen.

Oodles of charm and perfect for storage.

Image

These beauties didn’t hang around long and I can see why.

They have curved front corners, lovely turned handles and a deep base drawer.

Hand painted in Linen, one of my favourite colours this month.

Image

Image

I transformed a vintage cabinet using mirrors and lighting to become something rather more glamorous.

Image

Image

Sweet bedding box, hand painted using a mix of French Linen and White.

Topped off with a pretty reversible box cushion in Cabbages & Roses Black Paris Rose linen and Charcoal Ticking fabric.

Image

Image

Extra cushions:

Image

Fabulous beech bergere window seat that is beautiful as is.

Image

Image

Another coffee table but the mirror top on this one has curved edges.

Image

Love these spindle back kitchen chairs.

They have a retro vibe about them too.

Image

This chest of drawers sold immediately.

A combination of lovely proportions and great colour-Paris Grey with a White base coat.

Image

Image

Image

More chairs, this time in Chateau Grey.

Image

Used the same colour for these fabulous drawers.

The paint really makes the brass handles sing.

Image

Image

Finally antique chairs!

A matching pair and a single on castors, all upholstered in Jane Churchill’s Bambury fabric.

Beautiful carvings, painted in Country Grey and given a lightly distressed finish.

Perfect as bedroom, hall or dining chairs.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Note to self, really must keep on top of my blog posts….

Thanks for reading!


Wednesday Wish List – Workspace

Working from home needn’t mean compromising on style when it comes to an office.

If it’s functional and inspires creativity, boxes are ticked in my book.

My criteria also includes a window with a view and a radio. Where would I be without a radio?

It’s funny, as when I look at a finished piece from my painted furniture collection I can tell you exactly what I was listening too whilst I was painting it.

Needless to say my “office” looks nothing like any of these images but it’s there’s no harm in dreaming.

Wednesday Wish List – Church Pews.

A church pew has to be one of the most versatile pieces of furniture.

I used to have one in my dining room, but decided it was simply too big and has now been relegated to my work room.

 I have fond memories of the number of times guests sat on what they thought was the end of the bench but was actually only the long cushion hanging off the end. So childish I know.

So I’m on the hunt for another one. This time with arms to prevent further bruised bottoms.

Wednesday Wish List

I’m sure most women out there would always love more storage,  particularly when it comes to one’s wardrobe.

Shoes… do you keep the shoe boxes and stick a photograph of the shoes to the front?  Or are you more like me where you end up with a different pair of shoes inside the box than those described on the outside?

After having had a good wardrobe de-clutter this weekend,  I found several pairs of boots hiding at the back of my wardrobe gathering dust, so I have decided that my next piece of furniture will be a piece where I can display only shoes.  Pure self indulgence.

Image

The king of shoe storage!!

Image

 Something rather glamorous.

Image

 If only my porch looked like this.

Image

 Or this…

Image

 You could always turn your shoes into a piece of art.

Image

 Chic grey and pale pink display cabinet, I mean who can resist?

Image

Industrial vintage; an understated talking piece.
