Hand Painted, French & Country Style Furniture.....

Our painted furniture has been pre-loved, personally selectedd by us and carefully restored before we even think of the paint finish. 


Rick has worked with wood all his life and understands it well so won't buy anything in that might not last for as many years as it has already. Lynda has a good artistic eye and knows what will look good transformed into the old painted English or French country look. 


So between us we give you 'Shades of Pale'

Firstly the piece has to have character, we won't entertain it otherwise, and if we're happy we take it to our workshop at home to repair, prepare and consider it for a little while before we decide on the look we want to achieve.


We use chalk paint, different techniques and wax finishes to bring out the character and imperfections of age in the piece of furniture you see finished in the shop. We love every minute of it and although we have a good idea as to how the piece will turn out we are often pleasantly surprised at the end of the process.

Apart from the usual distressed finish we further enhance some pieces with unique freehand artwork, like the central mat illusion on the old pine table or the leaf edging on an occasional table (pictured above), to make it even more individual and special.


We will also undertake commissions to paint your own furniture in this way so please feel free to call in, email or telephone us for a quote. Ask for Lynda or Rick and if we're not there please leave your details and we'll get in touch with you as soon as possible.
