Things I Have Touched

On finding some things I cannot help but give them a new lease of life. These Sliding Cupboard Doors, that are on two walls of my cottage bedroom, were installed in the 70s and were crying out for some TLC. So I painted them with sky and clouds and stone columns with ivy draping them. Now when I lie in bed I feel as though I'm on a balcony in Italy.
The branches are used for Coat Hangers and a Curtain Pole. One left au naturel and the other painted matt black.
The Old Tin Chest was rusty and half the paint had come off, it didn't look like Shabby Chic it just looked shabby so I gave it a coat of matt black paint and now it sits in the lobby full of wellies and boots.
The old Terracotta Roof Tiles were fixed with 2 plant pots and put outside the cottage window to hold ivy plants.

Thing I Won't Touch

Just because I am starting a new business taking vintage finds and turning them into something new doesn't mean I will take just anything and change it. There are certain items I find that I just could not bring myself to change. These are just some of those items. The Letters are from an old pub and are scratched from use which gives them an appeal, the National Trust sign you would have to be mad to change and the old French Shutter is so beautiful you just want to touch it and feel its age, nothing more.

What Will Become of Them

A glimpse at the sort of items that I will be bringing back to life. I am off to the Paris Flea Markets next month, when I hope the barn will be ready to start work in. I can't wait to get there. We are taking the car to bring back some larger items and loads of little treasures.
As it says on the Ghost Furniture site - Bringing quality furniture back from the dead and making it hauntingly beautiful
