Hi my name is Denise Hardy and I love everything in connection with the home i.e. Interior Design, Hand Painting Furniture, Decorative Painting Techniques and Art.

 

I live in Alicante, Spain with my husband in a beautiful villa which we both love and work hard on making it our home.  I have been established in creating beautiful homes since 1998 and never get tired of doing what I do.

HAND PAINTED FURNITURE 


I can use Your Own Furniture and you select your own 'finish' and 'colour', or.... I can try to locate a piece of second hand furniture on your behalf and then 'finish' it to your design.   ALSO, I can Hand Paint Kitchens and Bedroom Furniture to your own requirements.


Please contact me either by email :- www.denise@decorativeideas.co.uk


or my Contact Page for further information.

I nearly forgot to take a photo of this piece of furniture, therefore you will see that I had already started to put its first coat of primer on!  The finished piece is in my own French Antique Style - You will see the 'Recipe' below

Handpainted Furniture, Kitchens and Bedrooms to commission on customer's own furniture or I will try to source an item of furniture on your behalf 


So...... whether you require your kitchen units or bedroom wardrobes updating or even small tables, dressers, chairs - anything at all - large or small - your furniture can be 'French Antiqued', 'Distressed', 'Faux Marbled', 'Ragged', 'Dragged' or whatever you desire. - I can meet your personal requirements. Also, if you just want your furniture plain in either white, cream or a colour of your choice - I can do that too.


I can breathe new life into your kitchen, bedroom or any furniure,  transforming the look and feel for a fraction of the price of replacing them.


PLEASE NOTE:  All Finishes are Handpainted NOT sprayed.  I use high spec primers, basecoats and top quality paints  in all my work, and can help you choose the best colours for your furniture, kitchen or bedroom.   Please see some of my examples further down the page.


These Painting Techniques can not only be applied to furniture, kitchens and bedrooms, but also to walls throughout your home.  Using my 15 years of experience I can advise you which styles and finishes will work best together, for truly amazing results.


I lovingly restore each piece to it's original high standard of design and architecture, so as to ensure that it will last for many more years to come, and that all aspects of the piece of work is exactly as the designer intended in the style that suits you and your home decor.  

I will clean, prepare and prime the piece or pieces before having a new finish applied.

Antique and distressed effects or faux finishes i.e. marbling etc are then carried out before finally being protected with varnish or wax. Each piece will be highly individual and classic in style.

The French Antique Style furniture is painted to give a high quality Antique Cream Finish and Waxed. The quality is outstanding and prices are very competitive.


The beauty of having your furniture, bedroom or kitchen  painted is that there are so many different finishes that can be applied to achieve the exact style and finish that you want and allows you to harmonise all the different aspects of a room, bringing all your interior 'together '  by choosing the exact colour/s required.

Contact me today for a  FREE CONSULTATION & FREE ESTIMATE.  With no hidden charges and I would be delighted to put life


back into the furniture you love.
