Wow! this one took longer than I had hoped but I think it was worth the effort.
I was originally going to use this image as a straightforward black and white silhouette but decided to go for it with the colour pallette and I think that paid off as this little table is now a riot of tropical fun. The main colour is Annie Sloan Old Ochre, with pretty much all of the brightest colours from the Annie Sloan palette to create the image and of course it’s finished with a good coat of clear wax and buffed to a tactile soft sheen.
This is a lovely table in its own right with gorgeous barley twist legs and the unusual oval top; it would look great in a hallway or maybe in the bedroom, wherever it goes, it’s bound to attract attention!
Table size: 60cm wide x 42cm deep x 74.5cm high.
Frank only ships to the UK.
So, who is Frank?
Well actually, my name is John, not Frank at all, Frank was my Dad’s name; my whole life I wanted to be a Frank… much more interesting, so ‘Paint-it-Frank’ was born…
After a lifetime in printing and graphic arts I was made redundant from my job as studio manager a few years ago. I now use my experience and know how in a very different way; I had an idea that l might be able to combine my graphic and typographic expertise with my love of interior design and colour to transform small items of furniture. My love of music has also drawn me to create my wooden wall plaques I call them “Frank’s planks”.
Many hours are now spent in my log cabin at the bottom of the garden doing just that… bliss!
I hope you like what I do and if you should buy something I hope you will enjoy having it in your home for years to come.
