Had fun transforming this useful cupboard with drawers unit. It was very scratched and had old (dead) woodworm holes which I treated anyway just because I always do that.

So then I filled and sanded the holes and then painted the inside of the cabinet, the inside of the drawers and the back panel in the stunning new Frenchic Al Fresco range “ Kiss Me Sloely”.

Once that was done I painted the carcass with two coats of the Lazy Range “Loof” which has a beautiful finish that doesn’t even need buffing.

Then I mixed “Sexy Silver” and “Gorgeous Gold” Frensheen together with Finishing Coat to the consistency of double cream and painted all the original handles and key to breathe new life into them as they were such a pretty shape.



Then I painted the moulding around the top of the unit in the same mix of Frensheen.

Finally I used a diamond shaped stencil (which we sell in the shop) and using a sponge applied the “ Kiss Me Sloely” through it to really give the piece a “pop”.

The contrast between the beautiful black and the vibrant blue with accents of pale gold really works well I feel.
I love to paint the insides of any piece I do in a strong vibrant colour.

As I always say….. it’s a bit like naughty underwear, you don’t expect to see it but it’s lovely when you do!!!

So be bold…. go for colour and the more demure it is on the outside the more fun it is to open it up and reveal the interior.

It really finishes a piece off in my opinion and is just fun!!!
