Painted Furniture

An old coffee table that was in poor condition (bottom right) that got an entire overhaul including stencilling.  A successful project and happy new owner.

A coffee table that had seen better days which was painted, découpaged, varnished and waxed to give it a totally new look.

A set of pine bedside lockers got a total makeover and a brand new look with some homemade chalk paint and drawers lined with vintage style fabric.  A little freehand painting on the drawer knobs finished the look.

An old chest of drawers that was looking a bit drab needed some TLC and is now showing the benefits of a couple of coats of chalk paint and some decoupage on the drawer knobs.

This display cabinet was originally a dark tropical wood with a very rough finish.  I painted and distressed it with various paints to give it it's shabby chic look and finished it by wallpapering the inside with some vintage style wallpaper.
