Two Tone Vanity
It has been awhile since I have blogged. We have been very busy with the opening of the London store and I have been a little under the weather. But that is neither here nor there. Anyway look to the left and you can see a small diminutive desk / vanity that is looking for just the right home. Come in and see us and we can consult and you will have a gorgeous piece of furniture when completed.
To the right you will see a mirror with a fanciful curve looking to complete someone’s home. At this point it is painted in the vGCP colour ‘Chalk’. but as you see to the right it was originally a gold colour. It is over 6′ long and 30″ high.
Oval Top Cabinet
To the Left is one of two round top cabinets. In a recent post I have shown that the first one has been painted in “Morgan’s Kitty” which is a real black with the inside being painted “lipstick.
The second one still needs to be painted and they both have yet to be distressed and waxed.
They are waiting for their forever home so if you are interested come down and see them at the London Location.
Carved Mahogany Table
To the right again we see a beautifully carved and gorgous mahogany occassional table. The three elegantly carved legs go up to a amazing turned support. Note the graceful curves and scallops of the top.
Since this picture was taken the item has been painted with ‘Stan Portley’s’ signature colour “Billowing Sails” which is similar to the vGCP colour ‘Chalk’ but a little bit creamier.
Imagine this piece sitting between two reading chairs in front of a fireplace. A glass of wine to tease the pallet.
Now to the left again is a small server. It is as we see it with brass inlays and a brass rail along three sides of the top. It also has an elegant brass insert for the door and two shelves on the inside.
This piece would be a natural appointment for that formal front hall or it could become a real funky piece in a small modern apartment.
With the brass we could see it making a little bar with a fanciful lines in that first apartment.
Again to the right we see a lovely four drawer vanity or server. Notice the lovely gorgous lines of the curved front. Of a diminutive size this piece could be the highlight of your parlour.
Come out to the studio at our home south of Sparta to see this great item.
Imagine the change you could bring about in this piece whether you do it yourself or if you have us do it for you.
To the left is another small server with two drawers and two doors.
Just imagine a beautiful round glass tray with cute crystal appertif glasses and a bottle of the finest Port or Sherry sitting on the top to tease your pallet.
Store those extra bottles of fine liquor in the cabinet below for those ‘just right moments’
The Duncan Fife nesting tables to the right would be just the right item to set around you living room for when you have guests.
Imagine a dark stained top on each of the tables along with a lightly distressed, shabby chic apron and legs.
They would be so elegant. The finely turned legs and base are truely one of a kind.
And here is another wonderful piece. As the item before imagine a dark stained top on table along with a lightly distressed, shabby chic apron, stretcher and legs.
This could be an absolutely fantastic piece.
Well there you have some gorgeous pieces waiting for their home. Come out and see us. Let us know what you would do yourself or let us do it for you.
