My friend’s spinning chair was waxed today. Here it is:

I used Annie Sloan ‘French Linen’ on the flat wood, with a mixture of ‘Florence’ and ‘Old White’ to make ‘Cornish’, on the carvings:

The big project is underway; it was such a nice day that we thought we had better make the best of it and crack on: Here’s the dresser base:

The top of it has been sanded but the photograph is giving too much glare to see it well. I won’t be painting it for a day or so, as I’ve decided to go off buying tomorrow. I went to an auction viewing today with a plan of just short listing a few items, but I had dad with me, so the ‘short’ list is now 3 pages long… we are as bad as one another!
