Less talking, more doing!

So, I've got a little slack at posting anything particularly meaty in the last month - when you click onto my blog you will have been automatically taken to the ''my work/for sale'' tab - which is where you may want to spend most of your time anyway? Then if you want to have a poke around elsewhere, please feel free to.

Life is just particularly busy at the moment, with the weather so beautiful, we are all wanting to spend more time outside and I'm loving that - I'm still here though, still sourcing and painting......but just without so many words?!

White-washed hall table

Just a quickie post - a piece that I listed for sale late last week. I found & painted a lovely small hall table in the sunshine whilst the kids played in the garden. I pretty much knew I wanted a white and clean look, but then once the piece is all painted, the urge within me to distress or age usually appears. Well not this time, friends! I just loved the pure, clean look, even on the hardware, so white she has stayed! A simple chalk point and wax look, very French and her!

Antique white oak buffet/sideboard

My kids have all had the awful chesty cold that's been flying around, so my nursing efforts have been well and truly tested (on a 24 hr shift pretty much all week!) - I really wanted to get out and finish this buffet and this afternoon, I have been able to do that!
Its a really lovely sold piece (I think oak) so I have sanded back the top to a raw state and the body has been painted in an antique white. There are 2 roomy drawers, a huge storage area below and lovely bright blue drawer pulls. I left the original drop pulls on the doors, they look very cute!


Measurements are 136W x 50D x 96H - a great buffet or sideboard, I think it would look just great in a modern or traditional setting :)

Large country style sideboard/buffet

I bought a large country buffet from an elderly lady who was clearing out her Mothers home in a really nice area of Perth. It was a great find, solid wood, a beautiful traditional shape. loads of storage and heavy as anything...a great addition to any home. I'm using these pictures as inspiration to finish the piece in the next few days.....

See you back here in a few days with the finished product!
