Personalized POSTBOX Orders – LLCrafts

Hand-painted POST BOX Commissioned Orders
Painted by Northern Irish Artist Louise Lester – LLCrafts
These are some samples of beautiful hand-painted POST BOXES that I have painted and personalized for recent customers. Some of the clients supplied their own ‘Metal’ post boxes …….. however I can also supply a ‘Wooden’ post box.

This design was lovely and unique, with a wonderful ‘Swallows’ imagery painted onto the letterbox, with the House No. 99 and the Family Name added! ‘Swallow Birds’ were chosen because during the building of the house these birds also made it their home, so that became the perfect painting subject matter! When the customer ‘Ann’ collected the finished job, she was so impressed, saying it was just *STUNNING*! ……. its always great to get wonderful customer feedback!!

Some more beautifully hand-painted ‘Post Boxes’ – A WOODEN LetterBox that I am able to supply……  this order was painted with an ‘Ivy’ design, surrounding the ‘House No.60’


And this customer’s own METAL Letterbox …… with a vintage ‘Ferguson Tractor’ handpainted onto the front!

Contact Louise / Gloria at – or phone us – if you wish to have a fantastic and original Hand-Painted ‘POST BOX’ addition for your home ………… Makes a great ‘New Home’ Gift!! ………… or simply make your postman’s life easier!

Valentines Day – Custom Gift Order


Hand painted by Northern Ireland Artist Louise Lester – LLCrafts

Personal ‘One-Off’ Customer’s Own Craft Item – Glass Bottle

This was a wonderful wee order to complete, as it has a fantastic story behind it and it was a surprise VALENTINES DAY Gift!

The background story is that the customer wanted this wee glass bottle (only about 6″ or 15cm tall) painted for her boyfriend, who is a farmer and this bottle was dug up from his field, by himself! He had no idea that his girlfriend was then going to get it customised with their personal details! …….. brilliant!!

The painted image wanted was the farmers own breed of sheep- ‘Suffolk Sheep’ and was personalised with their two names and date ……… Just love it!!

Bring along your own item to be decorated!

Bespoke Clockface LLCrafts Orders

Grandfather Clock Face Restoration

Do you have an ‘Old & Rusty Grandfather Clockface’ ……… LLCrafts at Galgorm, Ballymena can restore it for you back to its former beauty!

Artist Louise Lester (BA Hons) can paint any beautiful design on a customer’s clockface, producing a perfectly unique and bespoke item in all its glory! Even if the old clockface is rusty and aged, bring it along and see it transformed.

All types of clockfaces can be restored, including this bespoke decorated sample of a ‘Moon Dial’ Clockface. The beautiful detailing of the numerals around the top curve and the delicate ‘world globe maps’ along the top edge, helps to display the ‘Moon Dial’ movement of this clockface.

Another beautiful example of Louise’s work is this ‘Steam Train’ commissioned clockface. The important aspect of this particular order was the quaint steam engine train scene, which the customer wished to be brought ‘back to life’ and brightened up. The scene was then complimented with lovely delicate corner flowers, to finish the design.

As you can see, the degree of damage and rust on this clockface before restoration was quite severe, however when fully restored the end painted result is refreshingly elegant. ClockFace_2

 So contact me at ‘LLCrafts’ –  with your old and rusty items, and restore some life back into them!
