As well as being called on to restore items with marbling, wood graining and gilding finishes, Michael has also been commissioned to complete many new pieces of furniture with these paint effects as well as distressing, , glazing and so on.

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……
