Wood Planks at Lindleywood Little Greene Paint Company Lindleywood Wood and Paint

All our products are carefully handmade, by us here at Lindleywood. We have been handcrafting our painted wooden boxes since 2008 from high-grade sustainable European redwood pine (known as Scot's Pine) supplied by a small local woodmerchant. They are then handpainted with non-toxic water-based wood paints suitable for interior and exterior use. These paints comply with European Standard BS EN 71-3:1995 (better known as the 'Toy Paint Regulations') so are safe for children. But they are also safe for birds and wildlife too.

Our paints, by Little Greene, a small independent British manufacturer from the northwest of England (who have been creating paints since 1773), enable us to create beautiful products especially for you.

Important Note regarding colours: The colours shown on our paint charts are the colours we have available as standard. Please note that although we have tried to accurately portray these colours, Internet browsers and screens may cause colours to appear slightly differently.

Please be aware that each item is individually hand-crafted and hand-painted to order by us so one item will differ slightly from another and may not appear exactly as in the photographs of other products. This means that each product is entirely unique and extremely individual! Also note that as we make each item from wood there may some variation in grain. Over time there may also be movement in joints and surfaces. This is down to the nature of ‘real wood' as opposed to synthetic materials and we feel further adds to the individuality of each product.
