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.

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 – Antique Corner Cupboard.

A corner cupboard is the perfect solution for a room with limited floor space.

This particular antique one has oodles of storage space with beautifully shaped shelving and has the sweetest small inner drawers.

I painted the interior a gorgeous blue colour called Nautique as I thought the top cupboard doors could be left open to display  treasures and show off the beautiful shelving.

The exterior I painted using Earth Stone, a lovely neutral tone that works with everything.

Includes two working keys.

Additionally, the handmade Portuguese cabbage leaf dessert plates are also for sale £13.00 each.

Corner Cupboard for sale £295.00.

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.

Currently for sale – £495.00
