Painted Furniture Inspiration - French and ShabbyChic

Despite it being a grey old day in Sydney, I have a lovely, happy day - a little furniture treasure hunting this morning (OMG I picked up some fabulous pieces you are going to love!), coffee with a friend while helping him with some career coaching and then a quick lunch with another friend who was asking my opinion on setting up a website, and I briefly saw a lovely customer while she picked up a piece of furniture I finished early this morning. Love a quick sale. I'll share it tomorrow.

While my kids are having their afternoon snack and before I get ready to head out tonight to see the Hoodoo Gurus with the lovely Phil and our friends, I wanted to share some beautiful painted furniture that has been inspiring me lately. Grab some afternoon tea or an early vino and keep scrolling down for some painted furniture beauty.

Silvia Petroccia Antiques - the images speak for themselves. Beautiful muted colours and French antiques that make me reach for my paint brush and push me to improve my painting techniques.

The console above is one of the most beautiful things I've seen. Dreamy.

absolutely beautiful paint work

and lastly a page on facebook and instagram that always makes me smile is Found and Favour. Clara has a beautiful eye for soft colours, flowers and paint. So gentle. Follow her - it really will bring some happiness to your day.

Her photos even make me miss living in the UK..for a little while :)

happy Friday
