Painted Furniture

Tim Burton Inspired Painted Chest of Drawers

I have recently moved house and have been busy redecorating trying to make this "house a home"

I've been busy stripping layers of wallpaper, cleaning, painting walls & murals - and also furniture!

There was an old chest of drawers in my bedroom and I really disliked it's style, so I decided to paint it to match the room's theme (black & white monochrome with little blasts of red)

Here's what the piece looked like before painting

I started by painting the entire piece black
(Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint - Graphite)

I then painted the inside of the drawers a deep red
(Annie Sloan's Chalk Paints - Emperor's Silk)

And I finished the inside of the drawers with a rough textured coat of Dark Wax
(from the Annie Sloan Range)
to give it that rustic, aged look

Here's what the chest of drawers looked like upon completion
(*NOTE: Needs to be finished with a clear wax, to protect it and to give it a nice, soft sheen finish)

"Fun Buns" Logo

*Work in Progress*

A friend of mine is opening up her own cupcake business and has asked me to design the logo for it.
The companies name is "Fun Buns" and hopefully will be collaborating with an American tattoo artist (NY) on this project.

Watch this space!

Pro markers, pen & gold gilding
