Available: 

; vintage cedar bedside tables with a serpentine front and two smooth sliding drawers. Painted in a lovely taupe (think along the lines of French linen) chalk paint and waxed finish (tops have been sealed with a clear coat so you can safely have your water glass on them). A little white wax in the crevices to highlight the details and very gently distressed. Interiors of the drawers have been painted a gorgeous sea foam green water based enamel. 

Very solid and elegant 

45w x 43d x 75h cm $600 the pair

SOLD pending pickup : I couldn’t go past these cute old drawers. Solid oak so I have sanded the top right back, waxed and buffed till the old timber grain gleams once more. The body is painted in a beautiful soft white and interior is sea foam green. Gently distressed and a waxed finish. I love the drop down cupboard. Perfect for shoes. I think this would be gorgeous in a kid’s room. 
Sasha describes this one as “so cute and cottage-y”

Green...not a colour I use very often but this stool was just calling out to be a rustic green. These cedar stools are so useful and great for sitting at a bench or desk as the sloped top makes it very comfortable. Also ideal for luggage in a guest room. Very sturdy and painted in ASCP Antibes Green with dark wax for a lovely rustic finish.

I actually bought my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in the US when I was there last November but Annie is currently here in Australia running stockist training and Sandy from Paint Me White in brisbane will be one of the stockists. Contact her for availaibity dates.

  3. Hi.

    I saw your feature in Country Home Ideas and I was so taken with your furniture painting skills. I would love to be able to try this as I love the look - but I don't feel confident enough. Even your bathroom vanity....I love this idea, would you mind me asking how wide the vanity is, this is a dream of mine, I'm recently alone and now that I am I would love to try and do the same, Are there any tips you can give a complete novice, apart from start on a small piece. What sort of paint should I use and ? primer? How many coats do you do?

    Once again I thank you for a peak into your house through the pages of my favourite magazine.

    Kind regards.

    1. hi Robyn, thanks so much for contacting me. I think the main thing with painting furniture is to give it a try and not get put off when you're only half way through. it always looks terrible at some stage through the process.
      here are my best tips for painting vintage furniture:

    2. Afternoon. I just love your frame so much I want to come around and steal it from you :) haha. Did you find this in sydney? I so need one , i have been looking everywhere but dont want to spend more than $50.00 ... where do you suggest I go ?
      Kidn regards Kath

      Delete
    3. hi Kath - I think you should look at flea markets and second hand shops - also be prepared to ignore the ugly picture that may come inside it. and be prepared to paint the frame. this one was disgusting when i bought it - gold and with an ugly religious picture inside - I think also be prepared to pay up to $80 - but saying that I have found them very cheap for around $30. it all depends who is selling them.
      good luck with it

  4. Hello,

    I just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed looking at your work/art. I was so excited to see that you had a white sideboard and then sad to see that you had already sold it. It, as were all the other pieces very lovely. I just love painted furniture and my house is full of it! I will continue to check back to see if you just happen to have another white sideboard for sale.

    2. Hi!,
      Fiona, I love all the pieces you've done. It seems I'm not alone!
      I'm curious to know where all of you who are lusting after the Annie Sloan Paint, are located? There are stockists now in NSW, Qld., WA & SA. As there is, at this time no stockist in Victoria, I'm looking into becoming one & REALLY need to know if there's a need here, so would love to hear if there are any fans of the-very-clever Fiona, just bursting to create amazing works of art, located in Victoria!
      My shop is on The Mornington Peninsula.
      Thanks, Lyn

    3. hi Lyn, thanks very much, I have heard from a couple of people in Vic who want ASCP and I know there are no other suppliers as yet. good luck with it all.
      cheers Fiona

  5. Thanks Fiona. I just noticed there's a whole other conversation going on in another spot on your site(I'm afraid I'm not so techno-savvy!!)would you mind if I posted my question about Melbourne people wanting ASCP there too?
    Thanks, Lyn

  7. Hi Fiona. I found your blog today when I was searching for someone to paint a kitchen island bench I am about to purchase...it's beech, nice but not the look I am after. You have now inspired me to have a go myself...I am pretty handy and don't really know why I didnt think of undertaking it myself...lol! I lived in Lilyfield in a beautiful old terrace for many years before moving to the Hills district. You are right...it's a lovely place to live and whenever I visit the Inner West it's feels like home and I think I will always feel drawn to the area. Cheers Sharryne

  9. Hi Fiona,
    Have you tried making your own chalk paint? I have just discovered some recipes on the internet that use plaster of paris mixed with paint (and water if needed to thin) and I am wandering if it would be as good.
    Regards
    Cassandra
