We have just started decorating
our Victorian Chests of drawers
Vintage sheet music completely covering a chest of drawers
or with gilt or painted trim, as seen here.
Now, the great thing about this idea is.....
it has enormous and exciting potential
to use all sorts of documents.
We can work on a chest of drawers with
a customer's own documents,
photographs and memorabilia.
the whole family can work together
to organise the perfect
something to bring great joy to the recipient
something to pass onto future generations
They can all sort through old
birth, marriage certificates,
scraps of paper with special messages
by a loved one....
We wont use the originals,
as good photocopies would suffice.
We will decorate a chest of drawers,
or other vintage item,
age it using varnish and craquelure
and mellow it down to look as if its always been there.
Likewise, should you want to learn to do this yourself,
are taking details now, for anyone
who would like to come on a course and learn
how to paint, decorate and finish furniture in a vintage way.
Just email us at
