Latest Pieces : White Desk and Chair

I've just finished this lovely curvy desk and vintage chair. The desk is so gorgeous and practical.  I love all it's details and it's a great size. 
 6 dovetailed drawers inside the cupboards. great storage.
And a handy central drawer that is wide and deep with a lovely curved front and carved details.
  Really cute carved feet
The chair and desk are both for sale. 
Please message me if you are keen.
and before: 
(I'm not sure why the cabinet maker thought orange wood trim looked good!)
It was originally a dressing table and I have the mirror still which is a gorgeous shape with bevelled edge. I'll be selling this also and will post about this soon.
 
Phil has taken the kids to ride their bikes at the park on this sunny Saturday afternoon but I'm crawling into bed as have been hit hard by the flu. 


cheers 
Fiona
