Hand Painted ‘Antiqued’ Furniture

Project details - Hand Painted ‘Antiqued’ Furniture

Hand Painted Antiqued Washstand – Oare, Devon

The first two pictures show a antiqued washstand that I hand painted and which took pride of place in the homes main en-suite bathroom. Originally white, it was re-painted cream and then antiqued with a raw umber glaze. The beauty of an ‘antiquing’ paint finish is that it enhances any moulded or carved area, giving it depth and making it into even more of a feature.

Hand Painted Distressed and Antiqued Wardrobes – Nr. Blubberhouses, North Yorkshire

The next two pictures show a hand painted furniture project that was commissioned by a lady who wanted her bedroom furniture to have a ‘shabby chic’ feel. Originally plain wood, I painted, distressed and antiqued the wardrobes to give then an authentic aged look and add a rich patina to the surface.
