The white approach on Pinterest

When I first saw this old pine chest of drawers I was reluctant to paint it but have to say it turned out wonderful.  Sadly the pics don’t do it justice, thankfully the customer was really pleased with the end result.

The dressing table

I love how this old pine chest we painted for the client looks in their home.

In contrast to the old chest the bedside unit was modern pine but because it had great detail it looked wonderful once it was given a white makeover.

Console table



Ercol Chair Before



Farmhouse table and chairs.  Table top sanded & waxed. Base and legs painted and waxed.


Pretty set of chairs hand painted in palest green and pinks for a customer just in time for christmas.

“We are thrilled with the table and the chairs – so so happy!”


– Pine sideboard – Paint and afix new handles

Testimonial from customer :

“I am really happy with the sideboard, it looks great in situ in the
hallway, we put it there just while it was Christmas and love it so much
its staying put. The paint and wax finish looks great, and you’ve been
very friendly and helpful to deal with.  Thank you! ” Sarah – Devon

Toy Cot – repaint and provide bedding

Testimonial from customer :

an amazing woman who should be so proud of her work. She brought to
life a dolls crib and turned it into something beautiful. Amazing
bedding to match in Cath Kidston fabric this is A* work. Can’t wait to
see my little girls face on Christmas day
” Emilie – Devon

Customer unit – repair and re-paint

Testimonial from Customer :

Having purchased a delightful wine rack from Karen, she was the obvious
person to help me source a suitable storage cupboard for my bathroom.
In the event I found the right thing myself, but it was in a dreadful
state and if she hadn’t been available to bring it to life I would have
passed it by.
Working with husband, Nigel, they collected it from my home, quoted a
very reasonable price for the work that was required, and beating their
own deadline, delivered a wonderfully repaired and painted item that not
only does the job, but looks like it “grow’d there”!
Confidently recommend The White Approach and will certainly use them
again!  ” Jan – Devon
