My first love is painting. These two pieces of vintage furniture are from the Stag range and were produced in the 1960’s.

I have painted many pieces from this range and not only do they paint well they sell well too. Being sturdy and fine they will last another decade or two.

These have been painted with frenchic paint in “smudge“.

The transfer is “wildflowers” by redesign with prima. The tube which this transfers is packaged in still has some left in it and I have dome three pieces with it. The transfer costs £31.95 but you get a lot of transfer for your money. Well worth the investment, the quality is amazing and the range is extensive. I have added several layers of a lovely Matt spray wax by Dixie belle paints. Wow it’s so easy to use, gives a lovely Matt finish and no spreading, waiting and then buffing like other waxes. It’s great for pieces with raised areas too. You can purchase the transfer and wax from my website.
