Shabby Chic Furniture Painting Projects

If you’d like to move away from the more contemporary plain colour finish, Lee also offers more specialist finishes like French shabby chic painting, distressing, or antiquing.

Shabby chic effects give the surface a pleasingly old and worn appearance, an effect that can appear both soft and elegant, or very rustic and time worn. Lee uses a combination of paint and glazes to create a subtle, naturally aged, patina. and uses ‘chipping’ not sanding to reveal the wood beneath. These techniques create a more authentic looking finish, not one that’s contrived or mass produced.

If your furniture is in good repair, then it can be upcycled and transformed. So instead of throwing out that old dresser, chest of drawers or wardrobe, why not have your furniture hand painted with a bespoke finish that perfectly complements your room.

Lee is always happy to offer advice on colours and finishes and can even undertake the work in his workshop to allow for a stress-free makeover with the minimum of disruption.

‘Lee is an outstanding craftsman. The work he has done for us has been brilliant. We have commissioned Lee for further work. We would recommend him without reserve. 10/10’ Jane & Davis Sutton, Leeds.
