Restoring furniture / creative home

we found this is a neighbours shed!

Had to treat it for woodworm

It was pretty battered … but pretty nonetheless 

  

Before shot

It seemed fitting to house it in our new build as it had been part of the neighbourhood for years, and with a new lease of life, it had potential to take pride of place in our sunroom / dining room (depending on the season! )

I pick out the colours, and prefer to paint canvas, it’s my husband who gets creative with furniture painting!

So here’s what he came up with for the big wall! Whatcha think?

Pretty?

  

Making our house full of personalised creations aligns us with how we value creativity in our lives …

Paddy my hubby did an creative painting course using Annie Sloan paint and creative techniques for furniture, check out revamped dining table

…. A great little investment for our family as he’s becoming a dab hand for up cycling old and odd pieces!

His background is constructive concrete and is preparing for some future pieces of interior using concrete

….. Watch this space!

*Create the change you want to see in your home!

Xx

Ps: take a look at my ideals around creating a space around values in my de-clutter post

    Nice restoration. Older furniture has a charm about it!

  4. It can be fun giving new life to something otherwise to be dumped and wasted! Such great quality in the timbers in older items!!
