Recycled Furniture….

I wanted to share a few pieces of furniture we finished recently….my client wanted a white beach-y look,  distressed and aged, with a bold colour used on the interior of the armoire and the drawers…I think it worked out really well and she was thrilled with the results!

I am always happy when I re-do furniture for clients – it is eco-friendly, works with the whole philosophy of recycle and re-use and best of all, it saves clients a lot of money. Refurbishing old or existing furniture costs about half of what new furniture would cost and is so much better for the planet! Painted furniture is also hugely popular at the moment and is really on trend, so one piece will update the look of the decor in a room completely.

I always use non-toxic water based paints and wherever possible, I use waxes and not varnishes as a sealer. Painted furniture adds character and texture to your home and the fact that all of our finishes  are  hand done, adds an artistic feel to the home.
