DISTRESSED but not FORSAKEN ..........


We're tarting up the bathroom at the moment .....



We have at last found some lovely plumbers to do all of those jobs that need doing ..... new radiator, new taps. floor needs sorting and it all needs painting !!! We have had the above over mantle for years but I thought it needed updating so, along with the rest of the distressed look in our house .....


..... I have given it the ' Jackie ' treatment ..... Farrow and Ball Pavillion Grey and a touch of sandpaper !!!

Mr. Home's birthday today so family get together ..... I'm cooking !!!

  1. Nice job, I use that colour a lot too. It softens otherwise 'severe' looking furniture.

    1. Thanks Cro .... I appreciate your comment as I know you have great taste. I used to like the heavy, Victorian look in the 70's but it is a bit dated now and lots of our furniture has been given the Farrow and Ball treatment !!! XXXX

  3. Yes, I like that look. I would have white painted floor boards to go with it!

  4. We have lived here for over thirty years and inherited hardwood floorboards downstairs. I am so tempted to paint them all Rachel but I'm not brave enough !!! I love the painted, distressed look but I also like to leave some natural wood. When I think of the time it took us to strip all of the wood in this house !!! XXXX

  5. Things distress themselves in our house. It takes a bit longer but is very authentic looking.

  6. This piece looks fabulous Jackie - you've done a great job. Hope you will share more pix of your bathroom re-do later. Like you, I've painted, and often distressed, much of my cottage darker wood and pieces of furniture - it makes everywhere much brighter and cleaner looking. We've been here 30 years also and our neighborhood is changing now, many smaller properties being purchased, razed, and new larger, fancy homes being constructed.
    I would love to see inside them, I know they are beautiful. . . . . . . .and VERY expensive!

    Happy Birthday to your dear Mr. Home - have a fun celebration!

    Hugs and happy weekend - Mary

    1. Thanks Mary ..... isn't it funny how we loved the dark, Victorian look but now we are painting everything ?!!!! I often look at houses for sale online but am often disappointed at the way they are decorated .... but then not everyone likes the distressed look !!!!! Haha
      ... and thank you for Mr Home's birthday wishes .... he had a good day yesterday. Hope your weekend was good too. XXXX

  7. Oh Jackie, what a difference. It is stunning - the difference. I have a similar piece, in dark wood, and when I bring it to the city house, I think I will paint it. Nowadays, in the states, nothing (in antiques) that is dark wood sells. Luckily, I don't have many pieces of furniture left. I have always hated painting wood with its beautiful patterns, but it's a new day.

    1. I'm always reluctant to paint old furniture Donna but, when it's done it looks so much better. I'm not very good with change so it takes me a while !!
      When you've painted yours I'd love to see it .... you will probably do a much better job than me !!! XXXX
