Modern Twist.


Bold and beautiful.


Latest Painting Projects.

This fabulous single wardrobe is a coordinating piece to a dressing table I posted last week so I chose the same paint colour Earth Stone should a customer want the set.

I polished the handles and gave the paintwork a waxed and distressed finish.

The beauty of these wardrobes is that they dismantle into three pieces so they are perfect for manoeuvring upstairs.

This piece has now sold.

I chose Winter Sky chalk paint for this dressing table, a lovely pale duck egg colour.

Again waxed and distressed finish.

This particular colour of paint is such a versatile colour, compliments a wide range of colour schemes.

This piece has now sold.

I am on a buying mission this week, so hopefully will have more painted furniture to post soon.

Until next time.

Latest Painting Projects.

Thought I’d write this post whilst I’m waiting for couriers to arrive with the next load of vintage goodies.

These chests of drawers are being shipped to a lovely lady who wanted a similar sized pair painted in the same colour.

I had already painted this first chest in Belgian Stone chalk paint which she loved and worked with her colour scheme.

Both chests were painted in the lovely grey/green chalk paint then waxed and given a lightly distressed finish.

All sets of handles needed some elbow grease to bring them back to their former glory and it was worth it.

There’s something lovely about owning a dressing table.

A piece of furniture that can be used to display all your favourite personal pieces such as photos, jewellery, perfume.

This dressing table was painted in Almond chalk paint, waxed and given a lightly distressed finish.

It has beautiful drop handles that cleaned up a treat.

I currently have four more dressing tables in stock, please enquire if you’d like to know more.

The next pair of dining tables have been painted using Belgian Stone chalk paint on the legs.

It has to be my favourite colour as it works with so many colour schemes.

Again waxed and distressed finish.

Both have since sold but I do have another extendable dining table with gorgeous legs in stock waiting to be painted.

I love painting this style of sideboard in black paint.

It really transforms it into a statement piece of furniture and black is the perfect colour to display glass, mirror, porcelain.

I chose Nearly Black chalk paint then gave it a coat of dark wax which gives the black paint a richer, glossier finish.

It had to be distressed of course so that the beautiful mahogany wood could shine through.

Now sold but I buy pieces like this all the time.

Please drop me a line if you’d like to be added to my furniture sourcing book.

This sweet rocking chair was a commission job for a customer.

She wanted it painting white with a little distressing so I chose Casa Blanca chalk paint.

It will look gorgeous in her granddaughter’s nursery.


Lots of pieces are being delivered today and next week ready for painting, including dressing tables, wardrobe, bureau, chairs, Edwardian drawing room suite, Pembroke table, cabinet, chest of drawers.

If you’d like to see any photos before I paint so you can request a particular colour just drop me a line or email me on white67@btinternet.com.

Until next time.

Hand Painted Furniture Projects

Whilst I’m waiting for paint to dry I thought it’s about time I updated my blog on recent painting projects.

This was originally a glass fronted bookcase that was desperate for a new lease of life so I decided to revamp it as a cabinet. I did this by painting the exterior in Autentico’s Belgian Stone (a particular favourite colour of mine) and complimented the interior with Autentico’s Ice Cream. As with all my pieces it was then finished with a clear wax and I gave it a lightly distressed finish.

I then added a glass peach handle which just adds a pop of colour. Incidentally I could do with one if these myself looking at my glass collection!


This next piece was a commission piece for a teenager’s bedroom. The brief was pastels so I chose these lovely colours, painted the main body white and lightly distressed it. Again, all Autentico paint colours.

The client was really pleased, particularly as her great-grandfather had originally made the piece!


Now this stunning walnut dressing table simply needed a polish as it was too beautiful to paint. It’s the delicate legs that really attracted me to it.


This sweet nursing chair would have so many tales to tell I’m sure.

I painted the undercoat in a pretty lilac colour then added a white coat over the top so that when I distressed the paintwork the lilac colour shows through.

Perfect for a little girl’s bedroom.


A commission piece for a client wanting a bookcase for her daughter’s bedroom. This time it was painted to match their current paintwork which happened to be a Farrow & Ball colour.


This lovely chest of drawers featured in my last post and it sold so quickly that once I saw another set I had to have them! These are painted using Autentico’s Silver and Ice Cream on the inside of the drawers.

It’s the regal style handles that are the real feature of this piece.


Ahh, now these lovelies are floating at the moment as I don’t know if I can bear to part with them!

They are a set of beautiful Victorian curved drawers on casters.

I chose a fabulous paint by Autentico called Winter Sky, which is a lovely blue/sage green colour that makes the handles really stand out.


Apologies for the terrible quality of this next photo but hopefully you can see something of this lovely Edwardian wardrobe. A commission piece I sourced and painted for a client and it really is lovely.


So there we have it. Back to more painting and I shall post again soon.

I hope you like them, Sally x
