When we paint pieces for you, we let you choose from our six basic paint colours – shown below – or you may specify your own for a small additional charge of £25.00. Please visit “Questions” for more information on special colours. Our 6 House Colours are all neutral tones designed to harmonise with most situations so normally one of these will work! We lightly drag an antiqueing glaze over the top to soften the look further and bring out the details of the various mouldings and carvings that we use. The paint and glaze is then given further protection using a number of coats of satin lacquer. Drawer runners are waxed to make them run smoothly.
An example of a piece we have lightly distressed, painted on tram lines and then given an antique wax finish to in lieu of our standard glaze can be seen at the bottom of the page. Please contact us for details of prices as this will vary from piece to piece and on the level of distressing etc required.
The “default” handle we supply on nearly all our pieces is the hand forged solid brass ring pull you see below. This has been aged so as to blend very well with the paint finish we use. Please see the item description to check to see if an alternative is generally supplied. However we now carry a number of different handles all of which will give a very different look and these can be purchased seperately should you wish to swap them over (we will do this for you if we are painting the items). Please visit the “Handles” section of the website.
