Project details - 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 each piece, I block painted them in turquoise or blue and then artfully distressed them. Rather than just distressing each piece by sanding the paint back (which always just looks like it has just been sanded back) I created an effect that made the paint look like it had naturally chipped off over time. With this distressed effect complete, I then treated each piece with a darker turquoise oil glaze. This created an aged patina and added even more richness of colour to the finish. The tabletop, sideboard and mirror were then given further detailing by hand painting individually designed swirly flower motifs. With all the colours and detailing this project was truly one of a kind. The client was really happy with her new look furniture and was kind enough to write this testimonial –

“I am simply thrilled with my new look table and chairs. They’ve gone from looking tired and dated to looking just the business. Thank you Lee for your beautiful work, we will not hesitate to recommend you.” Mrs S, Harrogate
