Latest pieces

Sorry I have been slow on blogging lately. We are now settled down in front of a movie after a long Good Friday lunch with lovely friends. So I thought I’d update you on some recent pieces.

Lunch setting

Kelly bought this long India Hicks style console table (much larger than it looks) from my inventory and asked for it to be painted the same as a chest of drawers she bought a few months ago from me.

Julia asked me to paint her old pine drawers for her new bedroom. We chose a pale warm grey chalk paint and I gave it a gently distressed finish. I added new handles that Julie bought from Provincial Home Living.

This is a lovely old upholstered bench seat. I initially painted the frame a pale grey but it had such a purple undertone and I kept looking at it and decided I didn’t like it so I repainted it in this lovely deep slate grey that perfectly matches the ticking. Funnily enough it sold immediately repainted so my customers must have preferred it also.

One of my customers, Nicole, has missed out on several glazed cabinets recently so when I came across this one I offered it to her prior to listing it for sale. She loved it. It’s such an old piece and in gorgeous condition.

I loved these vintage French bedsides. They were so nice to paint and turned out so pretty. They got snapped up immediately also. (I’ve got the best customers)

I have also sold a heap of mirrors and homewares lately but I’ll  share them in the next post. 
Hope you all have enjoyed Good Friday and are set to relax over Easter
