The second of the twin chests of drawers was finished today:

Chest of Drawers, painted in Annie Sloan ‘French Linen’ & ‘Country Grey’.

I went for a rough & dark waxed finish to the paintwork, to add some faux ageing and texture:

Just look at those lovely feet:

Here’s Pinky & Perky, side by side, vying for attention:

I hope you like them.

I found this in one of the drawers:

Bill of Sale

Looks as though someone paid quite a lot of money for a *cough* ‘Chippendale’ chest of drawers!

This afternoon’s task is to finish a couple of chairs. If they’re finished tonight, I’ll post some pics…

Later…

The chairs are finished. One is painted in Autentico Vintage ‘Soft Grey’:

All of my projects are finished, so it will be a fresh start tomorrow. Either a large oak dresser, or a large dining set. The dining set really ought to be tackled, but all those chairs to prep:-(
