The ‘Croc’ design by Glasshouse Girl upcycles vintage and modern furniture pieces through the mixed application of paints, crocodille skin textured papers and resin based sealers.  Without the use of any animal sourced materials, you can now enjoy the look and feel of crocodille leather.

Shown at the bottom of this page are some of the pieces that are currently available for sale or have been sold.

You can also commission the Croc design on any piece of furniture with flat surfaces.  From console tables to bedroom sets, sideboards and desks to chairs and coffee tables.

This is an excellent example of my 'Croc' range of furniture using an original vintage 'Strongbow Furniture' sideboard. The external frame has been painted black and the top, sides and door front decoupaged with a textured black/grey mock croc paper.  The piece has then been sealed with multiple coats of a resin based varnish to protect and maintain its good looks.

Strongbow Furniture has been creating high-quality furniture for over 140 years and uses the finest timbers, veneers and polishes.  Each piece is made by experienced cabinet-makers who combine traditional skills and modern production technology. This sideboard has three doors and two pull out drawers behind the central door.  The interior has been cleaned and buffed to show the beautiful original wood.  Coming up to just above waist height, this sideboard has an incredible amount of storage which is ideal for modern living.
