Bluebells Galore!

13102861_1757603674476249_3371327743690957802_nWoohoo! Our long awaited Spring has finally sprung at last! Beautiful bluebells abound in Cornwall: inspiring our upcycled Victorian chest of drawers.

This gorgeous Victorian solid pine chest of drawers circa 1870-1890, has been lovingly hand painted in a beautiful bluebell blue and distressed in shabby chic style, then finished with a dark wax to add an aged look.

The handles were removed, and the carcass was stripped of all its old varnish and sanded to a smooth finish.


Two coats of our the chosen ‘bluebell’ blue have been applied, and areas of ‘wear and tear’ carefully sanded back a bit at a time to get that lived-in look.

A dark wax has been meticulously worked into the surface to age the piece appropriately to suit its period and style, and the original handles refitted to complete the piece; a truely stunning and professional finish acheived by our volunteers and trainees.
