Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum Coffee Table – June Red
Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum Coffee Table – June Red
This coffee or side table was inspired by the Margaret Atwood novel - The Handmaid's Tale which I studied during my English A-Levels and is now an incredible TV show from Hulu! In a world that is going crazy all around us, whether you are a man or a woman, we could all do with a daily reminder - Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum which roughly translates (in pigeon Latin) as "Don't Let the Bastards Get You Down". This vintage French style oak table has been sanded all the way back to the wood.  A custom Glasshouse Girl stencil has been designed and applied to the surface before topcoating with a Weathered Oak stain and multiple layers of gloss varnish. The base has been undercoated and topcoated with three coats of 'June Red'.  It has then been finished with an antiquing glaze which brings out the detail and makes the red 'pop'! Dimensions: 69cm square x 55.5cm high. If you fancy having a go yourself on your own coffee table, the stencil is available for sale as well as a full 'How To' blog post AND a DIY kit including all the paint, stencils and brushes!

The drawers are lined with wallpaper which can be selected from Glasshouse Girl stock or I can use remnants from the wallpaper in own your room.

Colourful Birds & Roses Bedroom Set
Colourful Birds & Roses Bedroom Set
This delightful vintage shabby chic bedroom set is a wonderful example of what can be done with 80s/90s pine furniture.  The surfaces, edges and feet of each individual piece are similar but not identical making it a lovely little harlequin set - one that matches without being matchy matching! Each piece has been sanded, undercoated and then hand painted with two coats of Fusion mineral paint in their 'Limestone' colour way which is a soft cream. They have then been decoupaged on all the flat surfaces with this incredible roll of wallpaper featuring roses and birds in dramatic colours on a cream background - sadly this colourway has now been discontinued :(  The edges of the decoupages have been torn rather than knife cut and lightly sanded giving it a very relaxed and romantic feel. The units have been finally been sealed with multiple layers of a resin based sealer to make them as practical as they are beautiful. Multi-colour ceramic pumpkin handles with gold detail lines on a bronze base and a red drawer liner complete this country cottage shabby chic look. Dimensions Bedside table 1: 425mm wide x 312mm deep x 533mm high Bedside table 2: 429mm wide x 313mm deep x 537mm high Chest of drawers: 827mm wide x 376mm deep x 731mm high Please note: these are vintage pine units which are in good but not perfect condition (see drawers of one of the cabinets) but I believe this just makes them even more charming and individual - a shabby chic enthusiast will just love them.

It's practical and stylish - what more could you want? The piece has has moved past its dark 1980s style days and brought bang up to date with a grey and white drybrushed finish.  This makes it look like stone or metal which changes depending on the light. I've tried to show you this in the photos. The front of the bureau and drawer fronts feature a carved birds and blossom design which is really brought out by the finish.  This is what really inspired me to give it the edgy finish as it was so reminiscent of the Game of Thrones intro.  The flowers align it with the House of Tyrell but you won't be disappointed if you are feel you're more of a Stark, Lannister, Baratheon or Targaryen.  Even if you've never watched GOT and couldn't care less where the inspiration came from, you'll still love its statement modern style! The interior has been painted in sleek black whilst the drawers have been lined with a grey / black snakeskin print paper with just a touch of glitter which adds that little bit of extra style and surprise when open. The original oriental base has been replaced with some simple solid oak 'L' shaped corner feet which brings the styling bang up to date. Dimensions: 460mm deep x 890mm wide x 1010mm tall. Incredibly heavy, this piece will need a specialist courier so please contact me for a full quote before purchasing.

Beautiful vintage 3 tier cake stand made from some lovely Washington Pottery Ironstone china plates that feature a blue rim and a gold filigree / chintz border of lillies and ferns. Gold cake stand hardware with a simple but elegant round handle.

With this in mind, the plate diameters are: 25cm / 18cm / 13.5cm. Carefully wrapped and gift boxed with assembly instructions. Please note: as these plates are vintage, they show a little wear and tear through usage. That said, in this instance, there is only minor wear to the gilded rim on these cake stands.
