Julie’s Jewels

I had the pleasure last year of helping a customer who had purchased some nice sturdy furniture off Gumtree.
The pieces were perfect in shape and size but not colour.
So with the application of various chalk paints they were stripped painted and waxed.
The result was some spectacular furniture that looks fabulous in their home.
Quite often black paint can be quite darkening but on this occasion it was the perfect colour to compliment their other pieces.
Along with a couple of unloved bedside cabinets upcycled with Annie Sloan Cream Chalk Paint my clients were very happy with the result.

Moving on from the beautiful lounge my client also asked my help to upcycled some pieces she had purchased for her bedroom which also needed an update.

These pieces were stripped sanded and stained and waxed and the base of the merchants chest painted in a mix of Annie Sloan colours.

Sling with  the stunning four poster which they brought with them from the USA the bedroom is the perfect place for relaxation

Vintage Pine Wardrobes breathe fresh life

This Pine Wardrobe was a stunning solid well made piece of furniture but showing signs of being a little tired and dated . With a little vision from its owners and a knowledgeable helping hand from Preloved, this magnificent piece has been transformed into a stunning up to date addition to their home.   This piece has been given a new lease of life by painting it in Annie Sloan ™ Original Chalk Paint, then waxing and then distressing to customers own specifications. All work carried out in customers own home. Maybe you have a piece you would like reloving
