Latest Projects – Upholstered Furniture & Other Bits

Alongside painting vintage furniture I love sourcing vintage chairs and giving them a new lease of life through fabrics and trims.

Here are a few of my more recent projects.

I couldn’t resist this sweet tub chair and chose this beautiful pheasant linen fabric to go with a piece of tartan wool I had.

This vintage sofa was beautiful as it was, so I decided to sell it either as it was or offer a re-upholstery service.

It actually sold as it was.

This pheasant and tartan chair was a commission piece from the original tartan chair.

I sourced a bedroom chair and tartan to compliment the customer’s room.

A pair of Edwardian chairs I couldn’t part with.

A gift to me.


This gorgeous pheasant fabric is proving to be very popular.

This lovely footstool was shipped off to Scotland as a Christmas present for a customer.

This cabinet is a home project.

I’ve always wanted a display cabinet to house all my glassware so I installed an LED lighting system and hey presto.


I bought a collection of Johnson Bros Rose Chintz pottery that sold to a very happy lady who collects floral tea sets.


This elegant style chair has been reupholstered using a Sanderson Manilla fabric and piped in black velvet.

A modern twist on a vintage chair.

Currently for sale £375.00

This was a commission piece using the pheasant linen combined with my customer’s family tartan.

Happy to report she was thrilled with the final product.

As soon as I saw this gorgeous Victorian armchair I knew I had to have it.

It has the most beautiful slender legs and shaped top, a real eye catcher.

I chose Thornback and Peel’s stunning Pigeon and Jelly linen fabric and combined it with a charcoal wool check and hot pink piping.

One of a kind, true statement piece.

Farmhouse pine tables are always in high demand and this lovely example of one sold pretty quickly.

I stripped back the top and gave it a clear wax to bring out the grain of the wood and painted the legs using Autentico’s Nearly Black chalk paint.

Just adore this paint, it has a gorgeous blue hue to the colour which gives the black an almost liquid effect.

Finished it with a clear wax and lightly distressed finish.

A home project using the same paint for my kitchen table.


A commission piece, apologies about the blurred photo.

The drawers were painted using Autentico’s After Rain, a beautiful subtle grey and the side columns were painted with the same colour and mixed with a white paint in order to highlight this feature.

Wednesday Wish List

This week’s Wednesday Wish List is basically anything from Thornback & Peel!

I’ve been an avid fan of their design for years.  Fun and quirky prints that simply make you smile.  My particular favourites are the rabbits and cabbages but there are sooo many more to choose from.

Two very talented ladies injecting British humour into home accessories.




Fun handkerchiefs!


Would love this wallpaper in my downstairs loo.


Jelly on a chair, makes perfect sense.


Uber cool deck chairs.


I think these funky place mats may find themselves in my kitchen sometime soon.


Even Gwynnie is a fan!
