UKAA Bespoke Hand Made Zinc Kitchen Worktop

We have just received some photographs from a carpenter who is using a UKAA zinc worksurface we have made by hand in Cannock Wood, Staffordshire to make a kitchen island for their client.

This particular zinc worktop is 19mm thick with square corners in an antique zinc finish.

I'm sure you will agree it looks great and would make a fantastic addition to their client's kitchen.

Large batch of hand painted church chairs and stools just added!

We are very excited to announce after many weeks of hard work we have just added a lovely batch of church chairs and stools to our website.

 

These church chairs and stools have been hand painted by us at UKAA in Cannock Wood, Staffordshire.

There are traditional Church Chairs, Stacking Chairs, Rush Seated Chairs and various Stools available.

They have been reclaimed from churches all over the UK; Storrington Chapel, The Royal School of Bath and St Johns Church in Woking, Surrey.

First we have sugar soaped them to remove any remaining wax and varnish then hand painted them in multiple colours, often with Farrow and Ball Paint and finally we have distressed them by hand to give them a lovely charming feel to them as you can see from the photographs below.

If you would like any information about the chairs or stools, please do not hesitate to call us on 01543 222 923 or email us on info@ukaa.com

New Use for Reclaimed Floorboards

Whilst out shopping in Lichfield at the weekend my wife and I happened to notice a lovely novel use for reclaimed floorboards at our local Fat Face shop.

Here at UKAA we stock a variety of floorboards including salvaged victorian boards and have sold them to customers using them for a variety of purposes.

However at Fat Face they have installed them in a truly original style: not only cladding the wall with floorboards but creating a surround for their TV and fabricating a storage unit from them!

As you can see they have left the flooboards in an un-touched state without any sanding or varnishing etc and as a result have created a lovely rustic, almost industrial look and feel that has translated to their whole shop. Oh and the TV looks pretty cool too!

As always if you want to recreate this look using the very best reclaimed and salvaged original Victorian floorboards, see the following link:

An amazing find of Victorian Cast Iron Guttering from UKAA

We have just advertised some amazing Victorian Cast Iron Guttering that i felt had to be shared on the news section!

The guttering is truly an amazing find, reclaimed from a large manor house in Southern Birmingham just last week.

It is a really heavy and high quality item with great detailing of a rope twist top edge and ribbon front panel as shown in the picture below.

The guttering would literally be the finishing touch to any home as it has a real "wow factor"!

In the picture below, Danielle (left) and Viv (right) is holding one of the mid-sections to give a sense of scale - it is 6 inches deep and 5 inches tall and as you can see very heavy!

We have over 110 feet in stock and online ready to buy from our website at UKAA.
