Painted bedside table, part of the set of furniture that came from the prestigious hotel chain. Hopefully we will be able to pick up a few more pieces as they are really good quality and look great painted. I used a mid grey for the body of the table and whitewashed the drawer, you may be noticing a bit of a theme going on here but I am really in love with this look at the moment…

You can also see part of a lovely vintage ladder that I stripped (I think it was previously owned by a Rastafarian as it was green and orange) and you guessed it  – whitewashed! These type of ladders are everywhere at the moment but this one is unique and I have the blisters to prove it.

On the other side is a vintage sewing machine table (complete with sewing machine). I actually got it working but unfortunately didn’t realise you have to remove the belt before putting it away, so a new one is needed to get it running again – oops. I painted it in Annie Sloan French Linen chalk paint and surprise, surprise, distressed it with some Old White. In my defence it really suits the piece…

A pair of vintage retro kitchen chairs, painted in a custom mix grey paint to match the chickens on the reupholstered seats. The background colour is a pale duck egg blue. I can see these in a country cottage kitchen but then they would look cool in a contemporary setting too. A must for chicken lovers everywhere!

This is a very well made reproduction regency style mahogany sideboard. Not one of those flimsy ones they mass produced in the 80’s.

I decided to give this a contemporary twist by painting the body in Annie Sloan country grey and doing an ombre effect on the drawers. After trying a selection of knobs and handles I realised that the original ones suited it best so I painted them too!

It goes without saying that I like all the furniture that we do but I absolutely LOVE this Arts & Crafts oak chest of drawers.

I have always liked the simple lines and pleasing proportions of the furniture, also I’m a huge fan of oak which was commonly used.

We sanded this beauty and stained and waxed it to bring out the grain of the wood. I gave the drawers a light wash of grey paint, then sanded and waxed them to give it a rustic look. The icing on the cake was the addition of the hare knobs which, while being very contemporary, are still in keeping with the Arts & Crafts movement towards nature.

I am very reluctant to sell this at all so it needs to go to a good home where it will be loved and cherished!

This chest of drawers originally came from a prestigious hotel chain and has one deep drawer at the bottom. It runs so smoothly you could close it with one finger!

I’m still in love with that weathered rustic/industrial chic look so I painted it first in a custom mix grey chalk paint and then finished it with Old White chalk paint and wax.

This one definitely combines a traditional look with modern convenience.
