Black ‘Croc’ Storage Sideboard
Black ‘Croc’ Storage Sideboard
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. As a final flourish, the original brass hardware has been fully restored and adds a bit of glitz to the sideboard's subtle and elegant 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. If you are looking for something similar in a different size, please contact me as I have lots of sideboards in stock ready for upcycling or I can source something to meet your individual requirements.

Black & Pale Yew Sideboard / Dresser
Black & Pale Yew Sideboard / Dresser
This gorgeous small sideboard has been given a real Glasshouse Girl transformation - you can read all about it on my blog. Starting its journey as a yellow varnished piece, once the varnish came off the yew veneer revealed its true beauty. The body has been painted (inside and out) in a black matt acrylic paint giving it an edgy modern finish. Whilst the top surface, drawer fronts and doors have had a cream tinted oil applied and been buffed until it feels like velvet.  This oil product was originally developed for floors so its incredibly hardwearing. The handles and hinges have been refinished in brass, a nod to its traditional styling. This small sideboard would be lovely in a dining room or kitchen but would work equally well as a tv stand or bedroom storage. Dimensions: 1080mm wide x 460mm deep x 790mm high. I can source similar yew wood pieces including dining room sets, larger sideboards and bedroom furniture if you would like something similar. I provide no obligation quotes and a sourcing service so that you can find the ideal piece easily.

‘Stud U Love’ Navy Leather Tub Chairs
‘Stud U Love’ Navy Leather Tub Chairs
These navy leather tub chairs had their previous life as an uninspiring reception chair until they got the full Glasshouse Girl treatment! The original brown studding was removed and the wooden frames stripped back to the bare wood.  The genuine leather upholstery has been retained as it is thick but soft and makes these chairs incredibly comfortable. The frame has been stained in a streaky walnut and finished with layers of gloss varnish. This retains their classic look. Inspired by the work of New York designer Lee Broom, I've made the studding on these chairs their highlight feature. I've selected a range of decorative upholstery studs in different shapes and colours including flowers, footballs, honeycombs, squares, blacks, glitters, silver, chrome and brass. Dimensions: 625mm wide x 590mm deep x 775mm high. If you are looking for a practical and classic chair with a subtle design bite then the 'Stud U Love' Chairs are the perfect piece for you.
