The Painting Shed - Decorative Paint Designs

Cornelia Linnegar studied art at Stellenbosch University, specialising in jewellery design and jewellery manufacture. She is a qualified and experienced goldsmith and silversmith.

Seeking fresh challenges she branched out into working with a new medium... paint. Specialising in furniture decoration, she revives good solid timber furniture by redecorating it her own style using creative paint techniques. She welcomes the ideas and wishes of her customers. Bring in your tired and weary—but much cherished—furniture and let it gain a fresh new life.

She can antique the new, or update the old, as you like it. Her approach to decoration is distinctive and a novelty which is finding a widening clientele, not only in the town and district of Wellington, where she is based, but across the Boland and Winelands, so Paarl, Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Riebeeck West and beyond are all within her ambit.

She transforms ordinary pieces into something unique that will give any space a new focus. We are talking about: revamp, revive, renew. Even a whole range of your furniture could be customized—French style, Classical, Country style or whatever.

Not only can furniture be given her treatment, but decor elements and walls too. Think about lamp-stands, vases, mirrors or any other feature item. Come to her with your suggestions and see what a difference it will make in your home or office, shop or business.
