Well it's been a long day in the Happy little corner shop and it's time to go home. Sometimes when things go wrong it seems a bit of a pain, but then I shut the shop, kick my shoes off and start painting all over again. It's been quite relaxing. Off foraging for new treasure tomorrow but Katie & Caitlin will be here to look after you. Have a lovely evening. Andrea x
From Honey Pine to a beautiful shade of Duck Egg Blue, these chairs have just been collected by their lovely owner. So happy to help with commissions ☺
For those of you that wonder what Katie O - Artist and I get up to, here's a little showcase by Russell Whitehead Photography www.facebook.com/russellwhiteheadphotography
Katie 's trademark piece. Still stunning
We've given this old School Teacher's desk some TLC. Would also be perfect as a craft or dressing table. Abbess is a company with a great reputation for quality and their name is emblazoned on the pull out stationery tray. Now sanded back to reveal the wood on the solid top, with the bottom and drawer fronts painted in Elegant Cream. Measures 104cm wide x 59.5cm deep x 71cm high. £125
The end is in sight.. Here's the pieces I've been working on this week, but I'll show you properly tomorrow. 2 commissions of kitchen chairs now a lovely shade of duck egg blue & a vintage sewing box with no sign of teak ☺ Then there's this awesome old School Teacher's solid oak desk that's starting to take shape. That one will be for sale tomorrow.
The other side of our pavement board today and one of our smiles to get you started 😆
A beautiful forage find from the weekend. Tiffany style stained glass vintage lamp, £40.
The last commission for this week has been collected. What started off as a teak sewing box with honey legs is now a real cutie in brilliant white and sanded back legs to reveal the gorgeous wood.
This is what they get up to when I pop out ☺
The only distress in the world should only ever be done on furniture and always with tlc ♡ Side table measures 69cm high x 51cm wide x 50.5cm deep, £45 Framed Robin print by Katie O £18 Vintage reupholstered stool £25 Vintage tea cup & saucer £3
She's been sat on the floor all morning, but it was worth it ♡
We delivered these cream/wood drawers to their lovely new home yesterday, but I thought I'd share them to show how two identical sets can look so different. The lavender grey ones are still for sale in the shop and feature hand painted scroll work & vintage enamel handles, £75. Both started out identical ☺
Here's today's share, don't forget the gorgeous Katie will be opening the shop tomorrow 11 - 4 if you can't make it today. Vintage 'elbow' chair hand painted in white chocolate and reupholstered in bird fabric. Measures 57.5cm at widest point x 51cm deepest point, £95. Matching cabinet £65
Just finished our deliveries including the pine Welsh Dresser commission thar I shared at the start of the week when we collected it. Now back in it's home looking smart ☺
The varnish is now dry and this dining set is ready to go. Oval shaped chunky solid wood table has been completely sanded back & pretty turned legs hand painted in Elegant Cream. 4 chairs have been reupholstered in patchwork material and legs painted to match the table legs. Table measures 130cm long x 102.5cm wide & top is 4.5cm thick. £295
A sneaky peek, but I'll post more info about the new pieces tomorrow ☺ Happy weekend eve xx
This Sunday sees 2 ace things happening. Katie is back from Rome after taking a well deserved break and also topping up on inspiration...and we'll be open as a one off 11-4. NENA our local resident association are holding a street sale & we're happy to support them. So pop in, say hello, grab a coffee and enjoy a mooch.
Just finished ... Re-claimed, hand painted & decoupaged cabinet/side table. Measures 67cm high x 53.5cm wide x 39cm deep. £65
In between varnishing the painted pieces that will be ready tomorrow, I'm restoring this little beauty. Gorgeous Queen Anne styled 3 drawer cabinet with table leaves that fold up, perfect for popping your cup or favourite book on. Fingers crossed, it's going to stay as nice as it's just come up, (as well as the polish coming off my hands).
This side table has been sold but it was the perfect match of re-claim and re-love. The bottom part has genuine age related patina having stood in a barn for years, the top was rotten so we made a new one but in keeping with it's age. Just scrummy 😍
Some things just go together ...like a pot of tea, a free hourand your best friends ♡ But these look pretty good together too. Large modesty screen £50 Queen Anne style side table £65 Vintage tea cup & jug £3 each Framed stag print by Katie O £20 Plant pot stand £25 Mini Chaise Longue £145
This week's commission is a large pine Welsh dresser which needs to look like it's neighbour....watch this space. We're also working on a new dining set, drawers, cabinet & a chair. Should keep us out of trouble ☺
This week's board - go on we dare you ☺
