Project details - 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 the other, with the same colour and technique being used on both. The chest of drawers was a lovely little piece, very rustically built and just perfect for an authentic ‘shabby chic’ look. I did both pieces on site, using the best materials and paints along with dust free sanding methods to ensure minimal disruption and mess. The client was over the moon with the results and was kind enough to email this testimonial –

“We just needed to send you a big thank you for all the work you did last week. We are both thrilled to bits with the outcome and absolutely love it all. it was a pleasure to have someone as talented and professional working in our home.” Mrs S, Pocklington


Every piece of furniture I paint is totally unique and can be tailored to compliment the room and the client’s individual taste. Furniture that’s in good repair can be transformed with a hand painted finish and I am happy to offer advice on colours and finishes if you need help. So instead of throwing out that old dresser, chest of drawers of wardrobe, why not call me and upcycle rather than throw away.
