I'm very grateful to Christa from Stories of a House blog for the inspiration for this dresser. I bought this sideboard from a lovely woman who was selling her house and a lot of belongings because of a divorce. She was still very sad but I could feel her strength of character and I'm sure she'll find peace and happiness soon.
After a lot of painting,effort and worrying about small details, here is it now:
Colours are British Paints' Blue Cashmere and Porters Paint's White.
The wooden top surface has been stained walnut then waxed. The painted surfaces have also been waxed for protection. Original hardware.
For sale in my shop. Let me know if you are interested.
cheers Fiona xx
