Latest pieces , welcome 2020

Happy new year and welcome to 2020. I was going to say I hope you had a wonderful Christmas break but I know some of you will have been greatly affected by the Australian bushfires and my heart goes to you all and all the wildlife. 
I have started working earlier than I was going to mainly to keep my mind busy instead of just uselessly stressing about the fires. 

I thought I’d pop in a few photos of my latest pieces. Some still available and a few sold. 



Michelle bought these lovely old drawers from my inventory and asked for them to be painted black and gently distressed. I gave them a good clean and light sand and then painted them with black chalk paint, gently distressed them and then sealed with a matte sealer. The hardest part of the whole process was putting the handles back on. So fiddly :)



I have also sold this little English vintage bookcase that I painted in a french grey (with green undertone). Just love these handy little pieces. 


 
Yesterday I finished a lovely and very old petite French armoire. I have painted this in an antique white and the interior is sea foam green/blue. Such a great piece for a nursery or bathroom. 




This is still available and details are:

Available: a very old petite French armoire, perfect for a child’s room or nursery. Really it’s just lovely storage for anywhere in your home.  Would be divine in a bathroom as well. Painted in a soft off white and gently distressed and sealed with a matte sealer.  Interior is painted in a satin enamel sea foam blue/green. The cupboard in lockable but the top drawer is missing its lock. Adjustable/removable shelf in cupboard. Four smooth sliding drawers with hand cut dovetail joints. A lovely old piece that’s needed some work but is now good for many, many years to come. 
87w x 47d x 157h cm
$750
Pickup Lilyfield or delivery available

I also have these pieces still available so drop me a line if you are interested in any details

































I’ll update my for sale album tomorrow. I need more hours in the day :)

  1. Hello Fiona
    Heartbreaking news about the bushfires, we're thinking of you here in England. I hope Australia gets more international help.
    On a happier note, love the armoire.
    Best wishes to you all in Australia.
