The antique chest of drawers – I’d forgotten just how big they are! As you can see, they split in two and are about 5ft tall when assembled.

They drawers caught my eye at auction. The drawer fronts are in pretty good order, but the top and sides look a little tired and dated, so they are the bits that are being painted. I’ve plumped for Annie Sloan’s ‘Paris Grey’ as I’ve used it before with walnut furniture and the 2 go very well together. I may highlight the carved detail with some ‘Old White’, but will see how it progresses.

Today’s weather has been warm and windy, perfect paint drying weather, so I’ve made very good progress with the drawers. I may even get them finished tomorrow.
