Latest Painting Projects – Decoupage With Cavallini Paper.

Cavallini produce some of the best quality wrapping papers around and are perfect for decoupage projects.

This particular paper reminds me of the new Ardmore Collection by Cole and Son which is simply spectacular.

I had a blanket box with panels that proved to be the perfect piece to showcase this gorgeous wrapping paper.

The box was painted using Autentico’s Nearly Black chalk paint and after applying the paper I then protected the whole piece with a matt varnish.

I was so pleased with the final result that I couldn’t bear to part with it.

It’s a keeper!

Latest Painting Project – Hall Table.

I painted this elegant hall table using a bespoke mix of chalk paints to create this lovely grey/blue colour which I then finished with both clear and black wax.

The black wax enhances the lovely details such as the reeded legs and curved front drawer.

A great paint colour that works with most colour schemes.

Latest Painting Projects – Bedside Tables.

Finding a pair of matching bedside tables is a quest in itself.

So when I saw these beauties I just had to have them.

They have beautiful decorative legs and square tops which are perfect on which to place a lamp, book, water glass, photo frame, the list goes on. Plus they also have a drawer each for extra storage.

I chose Autentico Brut chalk paint, a lovely mid grey and finished them with a coat of clear wax and very light distressing.

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 – 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.
