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.


Pair of old pine bedside cabinets

These bedside cabinets have been fully restored, sanded and waxed and the knobs have been painted and aged.


Antique pine dressing table/desk

We also have the matching pine bedside cabinets.
