Styling Ideas For Black Furniture.

I currently have a beautiful Victorian sideboard for sale painted Nearly Black (see previous post for more details) and it got me thinking how much I love painting with this colour.

Dark furniture can make such an impact in a room and really isn’t as daunting as you might think.

Here are a few inspirational images to show how amazing black furniture can look.









Latest Project – Large Oak Coffee Table.

This fabulous oak coffee table has been stripped back to reveal the beautiful wood grain and I then protected the top with clear wax.

A great size on which to display your favourite coffee table books.

Perfect for a country home.

Currently for sale – £275.00

New Arrival – Fabulous 1920’s/30’s Walnut Cupboard.

This gorgeous walnut cupboard sang to me from across the room.

It was the shape of the legs and fold out cupboard doors that contrasted with the half circle handles that really caught my eye.

I whisked it off to my antiques restorer who did an amazing job of stripping it back and under his experienced eye he informed me that the piece is extremely well made as it has a solid back, the drawers are mahogany, solid walnut top, sides and shelves.

It’s virtually identical to a Heals piece of furniture but without the makers mark (or price tag!).

A charming piece I think you’ll agree.

Latest Painting Project – Ladies Bureau.

This bureau is the sweetest piece of furniture.

I wanted to choose delicate colours as I envisaged this piece sitting in a bedroom so I chose Linen for the exterior and Duck Egg for the interior.

The whole piece was then painted with a white wash and protected with a coat of clear wax.

I then added a gorgeous new key tassel which compliments both colours perfectly.

Thrilled to bits with the final finish.

Latest Painting Project – Vintage 3 Tier Trolley.

Vol au vent anyone?

In a previous life this hostess trolley would have been groaning with 1970’s gourmet delights and possibly a martini or two.

Today the hostess trolley is cool again but for a different reason.

It’s a lovely piece of furniture for a bathroom, kitchen or bedroom on which to display your treasures.

Practical and stylish.

I chose French Linen as the base coat and painted a wash of Silver chalk paint over the top.

Waxed and very lightly distressed finish.

Now Sold but please enquire if you would like to be added to the list for another one.

Latest Painting Project – Duck Egg Kitchen Cabinet.

If you’re looking to add a pop of colour to your kitchen then this vintage cabinet could be the answer.

I chose Autentico’s Nautique for the exterior and Annie Sloan’s French Linen for the interior.

Waxed and distressed finish.

Glass fronted cupboards provide storage for glasses, mugs and of course shelves for your decorative plates.

This piece would also look great placed on top of a sideboard or chest of drawers.
