In the Press – Wedding Countdown Chalkboard

Scottish Wedding Directory (SWD) have featured our Wedding Countdown Chalkboard in their October-December issue.

The planning section of the magazine gives ideas to brides on how they can plan their big day and they highlight our Wedding Countdown Chalkboard for helping to keep track of how many sleeps until the wedding.

We make every Wedding Countdown Chalkboard here in our studio from solid pieces of pine which are painted and stencilled by hand and finished off with a hand painted MDF heart.


Commission furniture painting project -cream sideboard

We normally have a stock of unpainted furniture ready for commissioning. Rebecca asked us whether we had a sideboard and this is what we presented her with:


Rebecca needed to use her vision here as we knew that this cumbersome art deco style sideboard needed a lick of paint to brighten it up. Rebecca chose a grey/cream colour and we set to rejuvenating this lovely hand carved piece. Definitely one of our biggest transformations the sideboard was barely recognisable:


We gave the sideboard a coat of wax and distressed for a rustic country look which brought out the hand carvings beautifully. We retained the original brass handles painting them to tie in with the rest of the piece. We even lined the drawers with this gorgeous French style fabric.



Rebecca was delighted with the end result, a huge difference between its previous dark appearance.

Our commission furniture painting service available across Nottingham and Derby. To enquire about our current stock of unpainted furniture or if you have a piece you’d like us to look at contact us we’d love to hear from you!

Commission furniture painting project – white distressed bedside cabinets

Sarah-Jane was moving house and had been given a set of bedside cabinets, but they didn’t match any of the decor. These bedside cabinets were solid wood but modern pieces of furniture unlike the majority of projects we have undertaken so far.

Sarah-Jane was after a rougher finish therefore we painted both cabinets with a wax/white chalk paint mix, distressed and finished off with another layer of clear wax for sealing and protection. Sarah-Jane didn’t want the handles replacing however we suggested we painted them to blend in with the rest of the piece.

Sarah-Jane was so pleased with her bedside cabinets and now the match with her new home.
