Painted Furniture

Here are a few photos of some pieces which have had their makeover and are now in place in their new homes.

I hope they give you an idea of the sort of work I do, if you would like to see more, head over to my Facebook page. 🙂

This bookcase has had a makeover in Annie Sloan Paris Grey and Pure White.  It started off with an old yellow-y varnish and plenty of knocks and chips.  It now stands proudly in its owner’s hallway, which is also grey and white.  Perfect 🙂

Here is a recent Bedroom Makeover Project, which I painted in situ.  A mismatched pine wardrobe and cabinet were painted in Annie Sloan ‘Paloma’ and waxed to create a much fresher, matching set.  New glass knobs finished the wardrobe perfectly 🙂


Lovely Vintage Bureau, painted in Annie Sloan Provence and Old White.


Bookcase painted in a combination of Old White and Original.  Distressed and waxed for an aged finish.
