Vintage file cabinet coffee table

Good morning! Hope you are having a good week. I’m heading off to bootcamp in 10 mins so thought I’d quickly share this little coffee /side table I made from a vintage filing unit. 
I have added castor feet to raise the unit and add to its industrial vibe. I painted the unit in a graphite paint with a lovely satin finish and also added little file cup handles. 


Cheers Fiona

Custom job in white satin enamel

Here’s a great before and after : the magic of white paint. Jennifer wanted to update her furniture. It was yellow, red, timber and glazed with a diamond pattern. So much going on. She wanted the freshness of white. It’s going to make the room so much fresher also. 

And this cabinet.

So lovely with the duck egg inside. It was makes it pop. 

Here’s The before. It really needed an update.

It’s getting picked up early tomorrow morning and I’m sure Jennifer is going to love it

Black painted sideboards and more

Oh my goodness it’s been a while hasn’t it. Hope I still have a few readers out there! Hope you are surviving Covid and the crazy new life we are living. I have been painting away and keeping busy. I seem to have been painting lots of black pieces lately. 

This first sideboard was snapped up by Rochelle and Sean in Canberra. A lovely old oak piece with beautiful old glass in the door. The very old glass with the wavy finish as it’s hand blown.

Jo saw the above sideboard and asked me to paint hers the same. 

And her mirror to match. The mirror was brown and the original finished was flaking off. So much better now 

I also finished these tall slim drawers (now sold). 

I am in the middle of a few custom jobs that I’ll share soon. A huge difference.

Hope you are all well.
