Latest Painting Project – Vintage Triple Wardrobe.

Vintage wardrobes are fabulous pieces as they are such good value, brilliantly made and often dismantle into various pieces so you can easily manoeuvre them upstairs.

This particular triple wardrobe is all of the above.

Has original bevelled edge oval mirror, oodles of storage which include deep drawers with flush brass handles, tie rack, hanging rail plus extra hooks and dismantles into four pieces.

I chose Elephant Grey for the exterior and Nautique for the interior.

Waxed and lightly distressed finish.

Currently for sale £475.00

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.

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

Colour Inspiration.


Today I will be painting a lovely vintage wardrobe and I am using this rather lovely image for my colour inspiration.

Latest Painting Projects

It was a busy old week last week here at Sally White Designs!

At the beginning of the week I painted a beautiful set of fitted wardrobes for a customer who wanted a French style feel to her dressing room. I opted for an Autentico paint colour in White Pepper, which is a lovely soft mushroom colour. Firstly I painted Autentico’s Corfu White underneath the areas I was planning on distressing so that hints of white would peek through the White Pepper. I finished them with a clear and dark wax to create an aged look and they look fabulous-photos to follow!

During the rest of the week I managed to finish a few pieces such as this gorgeous wardrobe! Edwardian with a deep drawer in the bottom, hanging rail and several hooks that run along the back piece.

I chose a really pretty Autentico colour called Polar Blue – a true ice blue that looks fabulous when distressed as the dark mahogany wood contrasts with the blue. My favourite colour at the moment.

I have to apologise for my photography skills in advance. Am working on it…


I also finished this lovely display cabinet which is just fab! A rather glamorous piece.

Hand painted in Annie Sloan’s Old White and then the back piece is wallpapered using the most gorgeous Ralph Lauren wallpaper called Nature Study Toile in a pretty pink colour.

I also replaced the glass shelves with mirrored ones, a lovely detail when displaying glass bottles.


Another piece to show you is a really sweet chest of drawers. Painted in Autentico’s Corfu White and a lovely shade of green on the inside of the drawers called Poetic. distressed and waxed finish.

I then wallpapered the front of the drawers using a gorgeous Zoffany wallpaper from the Gustavus range called Sophia in mint and added some pretty peach glass knobs.

Such a sweet piece!


If you are interested in any of these pieces please contact me and I can forward further details to you.

Art Deco Hand Painted Gents Wardrobe

This is a beautiful Art Deco Gents Wardrobe manufactured by CWS Ltd, the co-operative wholesale society that began in 1863.

I decided to paint in the interior in Annie Sloan’s Primer Red which is a pain to photograph!  I haven’t managed to be able to pick out the fabulous little tags on each shelf which range from hats to underwear to shirts.  There is also a shelf for brushes underneath the mirror in the inside of one of the doors.

For the exterior I chose one of my favourite colours, Autentico’s Belgian Stone as it is a lovely green/grey and really suits a little bit of dark wax in places.

Such a great piece and compliments a valet stand I have painted in the same colour.
