Hand Carved Grey Queen Throne Chair Seat
When I saw this chair I knew it had potential. It came wearing gold paint and a bright hurt your eyes pink and loose limbs. 
It’s only when you start the cleaning process you see the bones of a piece, it’s history and this piece has plenty of history. 
I removed two layers of material one velour and one like the old carpet bag material.
The seat was packed with old long reed or grass like material and 3 rusty springs. The back material was stitched to a piece of cardboard box with Arabic writing on which was more in keeping with the velour timescale. But what intrigued me more was the wood it was hand carved with hand tools only and evident in the tool marks, finish and texture and symmetry. It was then covered with a white plaster like substance to curve out the joints and even the look no sanding down here or machinery to help the process, now I know I have a one off piece and a very heavy piece at that. 
After a good sand and clean and necessary strengthening of arms put a new wood baseboard and a board for foam to sit on I could start the transformation.
Painted it in Fusion Little Lamb a beautiful soft grey added a defining wax to slightly age it and black wax to define the detailing. 
For the material I chose Emma J Shipley’s Audubon cotton satin fabric, which is part of her magical animalia collaboration with interior experts Clarke and Clarke and is inspired by botanical Illustrator John Jame Audubon, whom is known for his paintings depicting magical creatures of the sky.
I just loved that pop of yellow against the white and black. 
To finish I added black gimp to really make it pop. Now doesn’t she look just look exquisite.
Dimensions are 
Height to seat 40 cm back of chair 122 cm
Depth 70 cm
Width 75 cm
Please note the seating conforms with all upholstery fire regulations and as with all hand painted or preloved furniture there may be some small imperfections or evidence of a past life,  with this piece I wanted to conserve as much of it’s past as possible so there are signs of where the odd tack or pin has been but nothing to take away from its beauty.

Add a touch of regal elegance to your home with this beautiful occasional Queen Anne Chair
There is nothing understated about this stunningly reimagined, low set, Queen Anne Throne Chair.  
It is delightfully showy, and the fabulous choice of fabric, (inspired by the work of John James Audubon’s Birds of America), complements the impressive hand carving, and bang on trend colour palette of the frame superbly.
This piece has had an interesting history.  Before its stylish make over, the seat and back were stuffed with an assortment of reeds and grasses, (now happily replaced with a new baseboard and delightfully squishy foam), and the back was stitched to card with Arabic writing on it.
Most intriguing of all, are the gentle tool marks left by the original craftsman.  They give the chair a sense of history, and a unique finish and texture that you just cannot find in more modern or reproduction furniture.
This elegant chair will look amazing in a lovely French, or Botanical themed bedroom, or bathroom.  It would sit beautifully as an occasional chair in a lounge, large entrance hall, or in a conservatory or garden room.
It’s perfectly imperfect, and gorgeously glamorous, and going to give someone so much pleasure over the coming years as they add to its history.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Beautiful Bedside Tables

The bedside tables are stunning! The seller was so nice and communicated extremely well, even though she was on holiday at the time I purchased! I said she didn't have to worry until she returned to the UK, but she still started to communicate with couriers to arrange pick-up of the items before her return, which I thought was lovely of her.

I'm extremely impressed with how quickly the seller arranged delivery and accommodated for dates I would be at home for the deilvery. The furniture is also stunning and arrived with no damages and well packaged. Extremely happy with the furniture bought and the seller. A small paintbrush and touch up paint was also included, which I thought was a nice touch.

Thank you so much! I love them.

Kraken Drawers

My new table arrived from PinkDotUpcycling at Upcite and omg I'm in love! I so miss being able to do this kind of thing myself, but cannot fault the work done to bring this table back to life and just look how stunning my kraken's bride is!! . Off to follow the FB groups now to see what other unique pretties I can find! Technically a lamp table, but us three being shorties means it will work just fine for crafting, science experiments etc. . . Only opened up to protect the artwork and a table cloth!.
