Latest Painting Project – When Wood Is Good.

When I find a vintage piece of furniture that is in great condition I simply leave the wood to shine.

This fabulous Victorian chest of drawers needed some attention to the body but the drawer fronts were in beautiful condition.

I mixed deep blue and black chalk paints to create a lovely inky blue which contrasts beautifully with the flame mahogany drawer fronts and brass drop handles.

Turned feet on original castors.

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.

Latest Painting Project – Antique Chest of Drawers Painted Truffle.

I took the opportunity to use Annie Sloan’s new Black wax on this stunning antique chest of drawers.

I chose Autentico Truffle chalk paint which suits the black wax perfectly as it adds depth and texture to the piece rather than looking flat.

Beautiful turned handles and beaded drawers.

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 – 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.
