Leicester: A Modern Day Fight For The Crown . . .

A lot can happen in a year. Turn the clock back 12 months and we were all feeling a renewed sense of pride in the city, preparing to welcome the world for the re-internment of Richard III. Leicester City FC however, were languishing at the bottom of the Premier League.

Forward 12 months and who would have thought! The charge for a Crown story continues . . . albeit differently. To us then, it seems Filbert Way deserves to be as famous as the likes as Old Trafford! For other stadiums, successful other clubs, landmark London and fictional streets, we provide vintage style road signs and they have proved popular . . . if ever there is a time to get the Leicester name out there – this must be it.

Shaker Cloakroom

Shaker style is defined by simplicity in design. This non-fussy look is extremely popular for kitchens, cloakrooms or utility areas. This is down to these areas needing to be functional above anything else. With this design style in mind we have introduced our own range of hand-made Shaker style peg hooks – now available in store.

These peg hooks are painted in a variety of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ colours. We use neutrals & muted colours to complement most interior schemes. We provide them in 3 peg, 4 peg & 5 peg sizes.

Mix It Up

Did you know that Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is easily mixed? You can mix any of her wonderful 33 colours to make your own colour. It’s easy! Experiment by mixing small amounts with your fingers or a small brush first. Remember to write your ratios down so that you can re-mix when needing larger quantities.

Any colour can be lightened with any of Annie’s whites – either Pure, Old White or Original. We have shade sticks in store so you can see how each colour lightens – how much white you use is up to you!

Knobs, Knobs, Knobs!

Purchasing some Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan from us? Grab some knobs while you are about it! On most items of furniture you can remove existing hardware very easily. This gives you the opportunity to choose your own knobs, pulls or handles to complement your piece, colour & style. Why be boring? A clever change of drawer pull or cupboard door knob can make all the difference.

We have about 40 plus styles usually in stock at all times; wooden, ceramic, glass and metal. Great for drawers, cupboard doors & cabinets.

Location Location Location

I am always surprised when Leicester folk haven’t heard of Loseby Lane. What!? What amazes me is that they know High Street, the Clock Tower is a landmark, they are even easily directed from Highcross; all literally minutes away on foot – yet alas, when I say our actual address the  response I often get is ‘Where is that?’ Here is to the delights of being in central Leicester but a world away . . .
