Furniture

This was such a dinky little thing..
Small pine dresser sanded down, chalk painted and plaster detailing.





Over time I realised my welsh dresser shelved top just gathered dust it really wasnt that useful.
Not in my Kitchen anway.
I used the top in another room.(at my sewing machine for smaller bits n bobs)
I put a base on the sideboard to lift it to the same height as my Kitchen worktops.




I found this in the Hawick charity shops.
Im sure it was under £15.00
A wee paint and some new knobs...
Great bathroom storage..
Yes I have a typewriter in the bathroom :)


A wee before and after...
I found the fire surround on Gumtree.
This was hard work but well worth it :)



Another piece of really cheap furniture...
Got this for £11.00 and im so glad I bought it..
It is such a great piece of furniture..
Has a small hanging space for shirts ..
Painted with some homemade chalk paint and plaster detailing :)



I made this one about 6 years ago!!!
My how time flies....


This little guy has been around the block..:)
He now lives under my Desk Legless!!!




Another little beauty saved from the dump..
All he needed was a new leg..
& A wee bit of TLC...
Some homemade chalk paint and a mix of leftover drawer knobs.
My bedside cabinet...




Working with plaster is amazing..

Its got to be one of my most favourite things to play around in...
You can create wonderful designs..
Charity shop sideboard...£40.00
I think this piece would have been worth a few bob If I hadnt painted it. :) I dont care lol..
I love it..






Some of my pieces I have chalk painted over the last year or so.
Ive also added plaster detailing to some of the pieces.




I found this in the charity shop last year, its been sitting in my shed.
Its far too dark for me, I tried living with it for a few days...
The large Edwardian mirror and side compartments dont leave you much surface space either..


 All the old holes filled and new ones drilled :) 
More surface space now...
This is painted in quite a warm creamy off white colour...




When you buy older peices..
A common problem is sticky drawers...
It usually takes two hands to open and shut them... 
Get a bar of soap or candle :)
rub all over where the drawer and the unit meet, dont be shy...
It really works!!!!
 


 You can find these wall hangings in my Etsy shop

...This little guy has been all over the house...
...As a table, a bedside cabinet, a toy box...
He has been tiled....decoupaged...stripped and painted more than a dozen times....
As of yesterday he is chalk painted in a nice putty colour... 
and placed in the bedroom for now, 

....storing... 
I dont know what yet...






This bookcase is beautiful...
Its an Antiqued oak 1920s solid piece...
Its slimline design means it can fit anywhere...
I needed something to house some of my crafty bits n bobs...
The antiqued Oak is too dark for me......
So I painted it in some of my handmade chalk paint :)..
The stain in the Oak coloured it a nice off white/creamy colour...






chiffarobe, chifferobe, chiffrobe, chifrobe, and shifferobe.
I got it for £11.00....Bargain!
I love pieces which have lots of storage space.. 
This has replaced my chest of drawers in the bedroom...


Some plaster and handmade tassels...I love it..
I even have space to hang 6 jackets !!!









So I completely forgot about this wee bookcase..
I was clearing out my furniture shed yesterday when I came across this...
It dont think its a beautiful piece but I thought it could be put to use..
This little mahogany bookcase has exceeded my expectations...
I forgot to take a before pic but heres something similar...


And Now...




Drinks cabinet / cocktail cabinet with carved detail...
 lovely walnut doors..
 opening to reveal a mirrored back drinks cabinet and two glass shelves, and a pull out slide...
 Two drawers...,and a lovely carved skirt at the front and sides...
 all supported by carved Queen Anne style legs.... 

 
A tad pricey for me but I fell in love.....
but lets not talk about money! 

First I had to rip out all the mirror and glass internals and devalue it in just under 30 minutes :) 
Some homemade pink chalk paint and handmade wool tassels!


and now its priceless! hehehe



 I Found this in a local charity shop for £40.00
Its worth a hell of a lot more! (unpainted lol)



Heres its all painted and decorated in a beautiful navy paint.
I will be doing a wall panel tutorial of behind the Sideboard next time :)








I have painted this in a gorgeous warm Grey with darker undetones...
I think this is a 30s piece.







I forgot to take a before pic of the Bureau...
 I found a pic on google images pretty similar to it..


 My bed faces right onto the bureau..
I cant think of anything nicer than waking up to a burst of sunshine!

I thought it looked nicer with the insert painted white


 I love the colour pop of these two pieces together..





I was determined I wasnt going to paint this piece because it was so gorgeously gorgeous..

I couldnt help myself.....


So here it is my first piece in the JiggleMaWiggle furniture range..
AAAargh some nail biting going on here..








I was asked to decorate this chest of drawers for a litle girls bedroom.


Heres what I came up with....



The Design stands out a lot more in real life...
