The antique dining set was finished today. The paint is Annie Sloan ‘French Linen’, with new upholstery in Parkertex ‘Salcombe Rose’. There are also a couple of progress pics of the pine workbench in the slideshow.

Pics of the dining set refurbishment can be found on this post:

The workbench has been scrubbed down, sanded, knot blocked and primed. Crikey it’s heavy!

 As you can see, although the pine top has been sanded, it still retains some patina. The last thing I wanted was a  completely stripped new looking top; it needs to retain a bit of its working past.

 It should be finished by the weekend – pics of the finished article to follow…
