Kitchen Repainting Ripon

Kitchen Repainting Ripon, North Yorkshire This kitchen repainting project was commissioned by clients who lived in Ripon, North Yorkshire. The kitchen had been painted some years ago and because specialist kitchen paints weren’t, it was now looking tired and worn in places. I rejuvenated all the units by hand painting them with a brush mark free, plain colour finish using my tried and tested paint system from Finland. This system is the best on the market and can be accurately tinted to any colour. It is used by many of the top kitchen companies, is highly durable and specially...

Shabby Chic Painted Furniture

Shabby Chic Painted Furniture Pocklington I travel throughout Yorkshire, upcycling furniture and this particular furniture painting project was for a client in Pocklington. She had seen my website and loved the look of my authentic ‘shabby chic’ furniture paint finishes. Most furniture painters just sand the paint back to reveal the wood beneath, but I have honed a technique that makes the paint look as if it has naturally chipped off and aged over time. The project comprised of a sideboard and a fire surround, both of which were in the lounge. The idea was that one complimented...

Hand Painted Airplane Mural

Hand Painted Airplane Bedroom Mural – Selby, North Yorkshire This airplane mural was hand painted in a boy’s bedroom.

I also ‘clouded’ the ceiling to create the perfect backdrop for the planes and painted a banner behind the biplane to add a further personal touch to the room.   Please use the...

Hand Painted ‘Cars’ Mural

Hand Painted ‘Cars’ Mural – Leeds, West Yorkshire This ‘Cars’ mural was hand painted in a boy’s bedroom. He absolutely adored the cars so the clients commissioned me to paint a mural of a racetrack and the main characters from his favourite film. The brilliant ‘Lightening McQueen’ bed had already been ordered and was set to be center point of the room and the mural. I painted the scene to look like you were right by the racetrack, which helped overcame the problematic height restrictions of the bedroom and made it look like ‘Lightening McQueen’ was really racing the ‘Chick’...

Bespoke Furniture Painting Harrogate

Bespoke Furniture Painting Harrogate This bespoke furniture painting was commissioned by a client in Harrogate. Each piece of furniture was originally pine and rather than just throwing them out and replacing them she decided upcycling was a far better option. She absolutely loved bright, bold colours and chose turquoise and blue to really personalise her dining room and give it a wow factor. She also wanted the finish to be a bit different, so rather than painting them in a block colour she decided upon a stylish ’shabby chic’ look with personalised flower motifs. After thoroughly prepping...
