 Eddie Art Hand Painted Furniture, based in Ardpatrick, Co. Limerick.

I originate from Chelsea London uk…my association with Ireland started in 1992 & I moved here in 2001…Art is my natural ability & over many years I have applied this ability to what I have been doing up till this present day..Therefore I am mainly self taught & have never attended any college…its just something that’s in me & so I have been putting it to use. I use only leading brands of products such as the following: Corona..Wooster.. Purdy..The Fox….Tikkurila…F & B..Little Greene….Colortrend.. Mylands..Zinsser & others. I constantly research whats out there to keep on top of my game & am a strong believer in customer care…..ps. Back in the day I was meant to go to art college but it never happened so its always been a case of… if I want it then I have to make it happen…so I made it happen…

 

Heres a little taste of what I do…

Finished & refitted on Friday 18th of December for my client in Charleville Co. Cork was this large free standing wardrobe..

my client wanted more storage & some thing with a traditional look….

question was do I buy brand new or can I find something that can be up cycled & therefore given my own personal choice with regard’s colour. Well my client searched & eventually came upon this large piece & that’s were I came in as apparently she had me in mind if she could find what she’s looking for. So after some general cleaning all areas to be painted were strip sanded by a combination of dust free & hand sanding to remove varnish, repair’s were made to a few damaged part’s followed by 2/3 coat’s Zinsser bin tinted toward’s main colour…….in this case Off White no.3 by Farrow & Ball …..a fair bit of work went into this project as you will see in picture’s so satisfying to see the end result…….Cheer’s Eddie… 🙂 ..oh door knob’s didn’t arrive in time, to be fitted at a later date……
