French Finishes You can Have!!

Yesterday, I received a lovely email from Annette Green who is an extraordinary artist and French paint finisher. Annette specialises in faux finishes and also gild in silver and gold leaf. She sent me through some images of her work and I had to show you, its amazing.I hope you can see this image ok, if not just click on it to enlarge. The panelling is just exquisite and the finish that Annette has applied, just gorgeous. You would swear this was from a Chateau in France!
Annette also sent some images of a Hay Loft that she converted with her Husband into a guest quarters. All of the paint work in here is by Annette.

This stairwell in the loft is so serene and beautiful and the walls look like old plaster just like you would find in France…not plaster board/ drywall!

Annette also finishes furniture and this is the reason I am very interested in Annette’s work.
If you would like to contact Annette, you can do so by calling 0424 476 404, or you can email her at
Annette is willing to commute for work and is situated in Adelaide right now and will be in Melbourne and Sydney throughout February.
I will be getting some more images from Annette soon and as soon as I do, I will be sure to post them.

  • wow! what talent she has, thanks for sharing.

  • So beautiful! I would love to have these in my home.

  • French designs always have style sophistication and elegance. These are very beautiful.

  • Oh! There’s something about French that is so hot even on their work very sexy. I love the graceful carvings, very authentic.

  • Thank you so much for sharing this, I need desperately to contact Annette on the faux finish she did on the corbels. I have been wanting to faux finish my kitchen in the house we built…but I have been afraid to start because I want it to look professional and not sloppy. I have done faux finishing on furniture in the past, sucessfully, but my kitchen is another story…it is the centerpiece of the home. When you visit my blog you will see posts of the kitchen and you will see what I mean. I can’t take the chance and mess up!!!! Thank you again … I will be contacting her for her professtional secret!!!! hugs!
