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.

‘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.

It is an incredibly heavy, high quality piece that has been finished with a glass like wax sheen over varnish which will ensure it stands up to regular daily usage. Dimensions: 148cm wide x 50cm deep (at widest point) x 88cm high. Any type of sideboard style or size can be sourced for you. I hold a number of sideboards in stock and can source something to meet your requirements.  You will receive a number of options to choose from before we proceed with the makeover.  Examples prices of small, medium and large units exclude the handle prices which are added at cost price. The sideboard needs to be washed, prepared  and any repairs made before we start.  It will then be undercoated in a suitable undercoat and spray painted with multiple coats of a navy blue acrylic paint.  I will finish in an ultra matte, satin or gloss topcoat to make sure that it stands up to everyday usage. The handles on the sideboards pictured here have been replaced with lovely antique gold bee handles or brass hexagon handles - you can also provide your own handles and other handle choices can sourced upon request. The interior of this sideboard has not been touched (apart from cleaning) but this could also be painted and refinished for an additional fee.
