Painted Dining Room Furniture Ripon

Painted Dining Room Furniture Ripon As a specialist furniture painter, I travel throughout Yorkshire repainting or upcycling all types of furniture. Whether the finish is plain or  more decorative, every project is tailored to suit the clients tastes and the colour scheme of the room. I undertook this particular hand painted furniture project in a beautiful house near Ripon, North Yorkshire. The client had recently changed the décor of her dining room and asked me to update her cream dining room furniture to compliment her new curtains and upholstery. The colours in the curtains were a...

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...

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...

Shabby Chic Furniture Painting Leeds

Shabby Chic Furniture Painting Leeds This shabby chic furniture painting project was for a couple who live in Leeds. Painting their tallboy furniture was part of a larger project which involved upcycling several pieces of furniture which had been bought from reclamation yards and auction sale rooms. They wanted each piece to be done in a different, complimentary colour and have a shabby chic paint effect.  The idea behind shabby chic painting is to create a painted effect that makes the furniture look genuinely aged and worn, even though it’s not. Shabby chic furniture can range...

Hand Painted Shabby Chic Table

Hand Painted Shabby Chic Table This hand painted shabby chic table was a great little furniture painting project for a client in Gargrave, Yorkshire. She had bought the table because of it’s shape and style, but was unhappy with the old paint finish. For such a delicate piece of furniture it wasn’t painted very sympathetically, looking much too dark and heavy. It would defiantly benefit from a more subtle ‘antiqued’ shabby chic effect and that’s the client contacted me to do. Due to the detailed carving in the design, I actually decided to use aerosols rather than painting it by hand....

Furniture Painting Leeds

Furniture Painting Leeds This furniture painting project was for a couple who lived in Leeds. They had bought various pieces of used furniture from reclamation yards and auction rooms and wanted to upcycle them by having them hand painted. They didn’t want them painted in just a plain block colour though, they wanted each piece to have a different colour and an aged, shabby chic finish. This chest of drawers was originally waxed pine and required a fair amount of preparation before any painting could be done. With all the wax removed I set about filling all the dints and scratches, sealing...
