Gorgeous Candle sticks from old lamps

I recently bought a huge box of old brass lamp parts. I decided to turned them into interesting candle holders and paired them up with old wine bottle holders. It was super fiddly to do and took me much longer than I expected but I love the results.

The hardest part was making sure the tops were secure and that it allow straight. I painted them white then glazed them. The first photo are all still available but the other photos are sold.

Let me know if you are interested in any of them. 

(updated - all now sold)

Happy New Year painted furniture lovers

hello 2023! 
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a relaxing time over new years. We escaped to Avoca beach for a week and then have been at home just going to the beach, seeing friends and pottering around the house. It’s nice to not work and just have time to spend with loved ones. 

Last year was pretty good for my business, I did less furniture than I used to but lots of beautiful antique and vintage homewares. I still love painting furniture but I used to do one piece a day and honestly it was just too much after a few years. It’s good to have a mix and place less stress in my hands and body. 

This coming year I’m going to focus on  painted furniture workshops. I’ll be releasing dates soon but send me an email if you are keen. 

I will also be blogging a little more regularly and sorting out a newsletter and online shop for my paint. Lots of admin to do :)

Wishing you much love and success for the year ahead.
