OUR EXISTING WORK

Welsh Dresser Little Lamb Mineral Paint.

This time our lovely customer wanted to transform a Welsh dresser that had been in his family for many years. It was a beautiful unit with stunnimg stained glass windows that he really wanted to keep but also wanted to update. He chose to have it partially painted in a Midnight Blue Fusion Mineral paint and requested that the rest of the dresser be cleaned and wax finished naturally. The brassware on the cabinet was also cleaned up and polished. Again, the customer's choice was paramount and with continued consultation the result is beautiful!

With this commission our lovely customers asked for several pieces of their dark wood furniture to be painted in a Little Lamb Fusion Mineral paint. What a transformation!

Bespoke Hand painted Business Boards

This is  a bespoke design for our lovely friend. Zoe. Zoe set up her own Child minding business  in 2021 and wanted sunflowers involved in both her business name and sign design. Her late mother Dawn loved sunflowers so we decoupaged lots of beautiful sunflowers on the sign,  Zoe's Sunflower Patch is such a great name!

Sarah got in contact with us as she also wanted a bespoke sign designed for her Forest School. She wanted colours painted relating to exploring outdoors so the colours of woodland, berries and leaves were combined, We also added beautifully patterned wellington boots worn by the young people which we decoupaged in a fun way around the edge,

This large family pine dining  table needed some repair work and a new look. The lovely owner wanted the top stripped back and re waxed. She also wanted the legs hand painted in Pure White  chalk paint and slightly distressed. To complete the fabulous new look both a clear and dark wax was added.

This was our most original and bespoke request so far. Our lovely customers are both Oxford Rowing enthusiasts and asked if we could restore an oar they had acquired. Not only that but they wanted Oxford University Rowing Club initials O,U.R.C,  and the year the club was established 1829 with 2 oars crossed stencilled on in blue paint. This was then going to be their new stair rail! An amazing idea! and it looks so cool!

This was such a sweet romantic wedding anniversary gift for a wife for a bronze wedding anniversary! We have these wonderful dog's bottom hooks at Home At 96. This lovely chap wanted each of the 2 dog's tail on the hook painted in bronze and then placed on a painted repurposed drawer front. He liked the London, Paris, New York decoupage design so this was the result! Very romantic and thoughtful concept!

A lovely customer saw this old chest of drawers in our Airbnb, Home Above 96 and commissioned us to partially paint and restore it. The wood had a real red hue to it so when stripped back and waxed it had a beautiful rich colour. The drawers were painted in a Raw Silk mineral paint and the old pine knobs were changed for brightly patterned ceramic knobs. A great result!

We offer building furniture from restored scaffolding boards. These rustic boards when treated, sanded back and either oiled or waxed really look the part! Here are some pictures of one of our lovely customer's living room. He commissioned a bespoke record player stand with room for his extensive vinyl collection.

This lovely customer commissioned us to paint and reupholster her dining room set consisting of 4 dining chairs, table and long bench seat. The two chalk paint colours used were Paris Grey and Original White. Each chair and the bench seat were reupholstered in a grey faux leather material.  She also loved our two bar stools painted in French Linen and Original White and bought them to sit at her granite kitchen bar. Looking good!

This lovely customer contacted us online as she'd seen a hand painted coffee table painted with the American Stars Stripes flag. That particular table was too large for her new orangery! Like us she loves the good old USA and wanted to create a little bit of Florida in Liverpool beautifully named  her Florangery! So she commissioned us to paint a smaller size table and also wanted a piece of wall art for her wall. So appreciative! Please read Eve's review below.

Eve's Review 

I can truly say hand on heart dealing with Sue was perfect and seamless.

 

Sue’s customer service is second to none, and her goods are absolutely wonderful I was literally speechless when I seen them.

The coffee table was exactly what we wanted for our new orangery, unusual, quirky, one off.. I came up with an idea for some matching artwork and after explaining my idea in emails to Sue she definitely delivered (quite literally straight to our door) the most amazing artwork I honestly can’t put into words how happy, delighted, impressed we are in fact we have decided to put them in our living room so we can enjoy them more often..my Sister called and was that impressed she asked me for Sue’s details!

Honestly excellent you can order with confidence..which is exactly what we’re going to do again..be assured Sue’s customer service and delivery is second to none and both Sue and Lisa are very talented and very good at what they do.
