We bought this to accompany the Victorian table, but it’s not obligatory 😉 I ’embroidered’ the rattan seat with wool in a star design, it’s a similar process to the sewing we did in reception class back in the day, only with more brute force and swearing involved 😀
How versatile is this Victorian piece? I have dressed it as a desk, but it could just as easily be a side table, a console table or a dressing table, any more suggested uses most welcome 😀
I was having a moment when deciding the fate of this vintage oak two tier table, I threw caution to the winds and painted it mustard yellow, with a star tile stencil in graphite on the top and shelf. I was channelling cocktails and G&Ts in the garden, as you can see from the styling, which makes a change from consuming them I suppose 😀
Another unique piece from Antiquechic, with a marbled paint effect, exposed original wood and some blingtastic arty stuff going on with the bottom drawer. What more could you want? Well here at furniture wrangling central we LOVE a good wheel, we just wish more pieces came with them, so this is pretty perfect in every way 😉
Carved oak Victorian trunk that rather unusually has a drop down front, instead of a lift up lid, so perfect for a TV. I have used a balayage/ombre effect to highlight all that fantastic detailing… I’m really not sure I want to sell this one, I need a bigger house 😀
Okay so the weather is horrendous, and bears no resemblance to spring as we know it, but you can bring some sunshine into your life with this decoupaged Victorian chest of drawers. Painstakingly – or should that be painfully? 😀 restored and given a sunny makeover guaranteed to lift anyone’s spirits.
We’re all about the Victorian furniture rescues at the moment. This mahogany chest of drawers has had a bit of country house makeover, we restored the drawers and added some stencilling featuring alliums and butterflies. Classic with a twist 😉
We finally managed to do this gorgeous Victorian corner cupboard justice, after a bit of set building to create a corner in the workshop 😉 The previous pictures we took didn’t highlight quite how lush it is IMHO. Corner cupboards fell out of favour for a while, but I never understood why, they are brilliant for tight spaces, especially when they look as good as this one! So I just kept on buying them, I’m stubborn like that 😀
Elegant oak console table in a whitewashed finish. I think it looks looks rather classy and chateau chic, n’est-ce pas? 😀
This Victorian mahogany chest of drawers has been painted in a duck egg blue and given a chinoiserie style makeover, complete with silver bird handles. It’s very capacious (now there’s a word you don’t see often enough these days) 😀 I have more clothes than the costume department at Covent Garden Opera House, but even I would struggle to fill this bad boy up!
