Hand Painted Distressed Furniture

Project details - Hand Painted Distressed Furniture

Hand Painted  Distressed Table & Chairs – Harrogate, North Yorkshire

The first three pics show a hand painted distressed kitchen furniture project I had where I distressed and hand painted some old pine furniture. The client loved bright colours and chose turquoise to really give her dining room that wow factor. After painting on the turquoise the furniture was distressed and then treated with a darker turquoise glaze to add even more richness of colour. The table top was also painted with some individually designed swirly flower motifs.With all the colours and detailing this project truly was one of a kind.

“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


Hand Painted Distressed Fireplace – Pontefract

The next couple of pictures show a laminate fireplace that I hand painted and then distressed. The clients had changed the floor from maple to a light wood effect and the fireplace no longer looked right in the room. They client called me and asked if I could create a stylish ‘Shabby Chic’ look as she loved that kind of furniture and had seen lots of it during various visits she had made to France. After cleaning, sanding, applying a wax barrier, 2 coats of primer, three coats of emulsion, sanding back and finally two coats of varnish the transformation was complete. Aside from this fireplace I was also asked to distress a chest of drawers and a clock  for her – to see the chest of drawers please click here.
