The interior I painted using Belgian Stone chalk paint and clear wax.

Sideboards come in all sorts of shapes and sizes but one thing they all offer is fabulous storage space.

This hall chair had my name on it.

Odd chairs are such useful pieces to have around the home; to display your favourite cushion, somewhere to throw your post in the morning, an extra seat around the dinner table if required.

I chose Pigeon Grey paint for this chair, such a beautiful colour that would work with most colour schemes.

Waxed and distressed finish.

Latest Painting Project – Early Victorian Chest of Drawers.

A large chest of drawers is a worthwhile investment.

Not only do they provide a practical storage purpose but they can also be a statement piece for a room, particularly a bedroom.

I chose gorgeous Pigeon Grey paint for these early Victorian drawers as I wanted a colour that would enhance the beautiful mother of pearl inlay turned handles and escutcheons.

Also the shaped feet are worth noting on this chest, elegant yet substantial proportions.

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.
