A beautiful showcase of how a decorative paint finish in Artisan paints & products can provide a complete update and new interpretation of a piece of furniture, taking a bedside table with a simple design and transforming it into a bespoke feature piece. 

Fully functional bedside tables with runners on the drawers and the right sizing for the bedroom, the only thing with these bedsides was that they no longer worked with newly re-decorated room. Our client wanted us to revive these bedsides to fit in with the new look and style of the room and in particular connect it with the bespoke hand painted feature piece she purchased from us that was sitting on the opposite side of where these bedsides would be. So we came up with a concept to suit the look and style of the room she was looking to achieve creating a balance of classic contemporary whilst creating a piece that would work in cohesively with the set of drawers. 


Using Obsidian Blue and deepening this further with Carbon Black creates a richness  mood and luxurious look and feel to it especially when contrasted with Artisan Metallic gold on the handles. We replaced and refitted the handle, choosing a design that drawers the eye to it ,  a  ornate traditional design giving a little nod to the  piece sitting across from it. A beautiful balance of classic contemporary, without being "matchy" allowing them to sit strongly on their own to frame the bed as well as working in cohesively with the existing piece in the room.  

What we did: 


Hand painted In Obsidian Blue 
Lightly sanded surface with 240 grit for minimal texture 
Waxed in Carbon Black wax 
Edges gilding in Artisan Gold 
Handles refitted and replaced. The handles have been painted in Carbon Black Chalk Paint followed by Artisan Classic Gold Creme
