Painted Stag Heads

I bought some stag heads and have been painting them for the shop :-)

They're selling like hot-cakes!

French Cupboard - painted Grey and Lime Green

I walked into one of the shops I was scouting around for furniture and stopped in my tracks!  Sometimes you see something that's just such an exciting project - and I love this French looking cupboard.

It's much larger than a bedside cabinet... Here's a peek at the 'before' when it arrived in the workshop.  Slightly banged about from use but has a really nice oak grain - and still has the original key.  I wanted to create quite a dramatic look.

I opted for Autentico's 'Paris grey' chalk paint which is called Foggy Venice.  And then went to work with white wax to bring out the grain.

Those cute handles have been refurbed with grey paint and silver gilding.

And inside, to give a really FRESH apple lift, I've used Autentico's Lime chalk paint.

The basked of fruit has been highlighted with the white wax.. I really love the soft peachy look its got now.

All the carving on the front has been buffed up to add more dimension.  I took a few pics in the shop - this one with the light on...

Light off...

It would look stunning in a small entrance hall, there's just about the right amount storage space, two shelves and one drawer :-)
