Tis the season to be jolly! What better time of year to add a bit of bling to your furniture? And as you can see these tired Ercol chairs have certainly benefited from a bit of the glam factor!
This mixed set entered the workshop in something of a sorry state but after sanding, priming and finishing in Little Greene Woad and Bone China Blue all that was needed was a dip in this stunning pale gold paint. I've just dropped them back to their owners in Cambridgeshire who are thrilled with the results and I have to admit I keep eyeing things up around my own home that I can glam up. Now where's my paintbrush..
This Pair of boxes were locally sourced, they were a great find as they were so beautifully constructed with dovetail joints but they had seen better days with a few stains, loose joints and scratches in the surface. After a good sand down, re-glue and refinish with a dark oak wax they were in better shape than new. Adding hairpin legs & a simple statement panel of copper birch trees on black was the perfect way to bring them up to date with the Mid Century Modern feel that is so popular at the moment. This is up there as one of my all time favourite transformations (so far!) sometimes its the simple ones that are the best :-)
Introducing Colour & Pattern to Your Home.
Grab your sunnies! This G-plan chest of drawers was lovingly brought back to life with a high gloss black finish and made into a real statement piece using designer Jessamine Paynes 'Favela' print making this a truly one of a kind statement piece. The original brass fixtures were kept & cleaned up as they sat really well with the design & I can't wait to see it in its new home in Surrey.
Whether you're a designer looking for a unique way to showcase your designs or just after something that stands out from the crowd then I'd love to hear from you :-)
Gill from Abbotsley, Cambridgeshire had these pieces of furniture in her spare room. They were 10-15 years old, had seen better days and were well worn but well constructed and didn't warrant being replaced, besides they worked well in the space she had and she liked them.
So, after a simple consultation where we looked over colour swatches and paper samples we opted for this turtledove grey with feature drawers in Graham & Brown Windsor Lilac & Pewter Damask.
Another stunning transformation & winning combination in my book :-)
