Upcycled talboy drinks cabinet painted in Craig & Rose moonstone grey, green tones using Annie Sloans bird & leaf stencil uk

Bird and Leaf Cupboard

I thought this oak cupboard needed a traditional transformation to suit its shape and design.


I got inspired by nature and all the lovely lush greens of spring, So decided to use a very sweet stencil set from Annie Sloan's range. Overlaying and repeating the pattern till I was satisfied with the layout.


As not to make it to "shabby chic" I have used contrasting colours from Craig and Rose, Moonstone grey to create a clean canvas for the bold but also calm greens to sit against. Adding Annie's Old with for extra contrast.


The perfect combination of traditional and modern design and the perfect addition to your home.


We had a new shelf made and fitted by our good friend and wood worker Josh. I painted the whole inside in the deep to green to keep the theme going throughout. 


Finally I coated the whole piece is a clear wax and added the original cast iron handles.
