Choosing your furniture takes time and consideration. You’ll do it over the years to suit a budget, a lifestyle or a new home. And then, with the decisions made your furniture grows with time, acquires a well-worn look and tries to accommodate all your other lifestyle changes. But, it’s often these lifestyle changes that cause problems.
Typically these problems are when things don’t quite colour match. Your old brown or tan furniture no longer quite fits with the Farrow and Ball Elephant's Breath on the walls, perhaps? Because, of course, it’s a painful task to change furniture. Not least because it either cost so much or means something to you. And particularly when you just want to match your new wall-covering or carpets.
But you can do it. It is possible. You can opt for your furniture to have a shabby chic makeover, or a clean painted look, or perhaps a "limed look". And if you want a two tone look that combines varnished or waxed wood and a paint effect, then we can do that too.
We Can Paint Your Furniture
We can shabby chic your furniture and give it a new lease of life. Your hand painted furniture shabby-chic makeover includes:
It’s a hand-crafted service. We use traditional painting methods using Purdy brushes, very fine hand rollers and spray guns for chairs. We favour paints from suppliers such as Johnstones’s, Farrow and Ball and also Annie Sloan. But we also paint with the Dulux and Homebase range of eggshell paints. And, of course, we find that water-based eggshell paints, with a 20% sheen, take the essential wax finish best.
We collect and return your furniture at a time that suits you, keeping all the painting paraphernalia away from your home.
So when you feel that your furniture needs a revamp and the shabby chic style suits your home you can call us on 07766 225329 when you want to know more. Or you can email us at Shabby Chic Surrey for more information or help with colour choices.
