Thought you might like to see a few pieces I painted white lately. All in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Pure White for a lovely crisp bright white finish. There is something so classical and timeless about white painted furniture that has me shunning other colours most of the time. I love this look so much.
White is fresh and clean. It shows off the ornate detail. And white furniture will make your home seem brighter and lighter. It made such a difference to our home when I painted most of our furniture white! I find our home very fresh and pretty now with most of the furniture painted white and just a few natural timber to add balance.
Such beautiful carved details on this piece.
This solid mahogany little chest of drawers would be beautiful in a hallway, or as a sofa table or a girl's room. It's not very big (90cm wide, 80 cm tall and 45cm deep).
I buffed the wax so there is a lovely glassy sheen. You can see the reflections on the top surface. Did you see my blog post on using Chux (or J cloths) for waxing? I've had so many messages and emails about that hint and how people are finding it magical! Thank you for letting me know. I understand your excitement. I can't tell you the difference it will make to your waxed furniture.
This ornately carved chest of drawers is for sale but I have several people asking after it so if you are interested in it, be quick. You can email me for details.
I also recently found a gorgeous nested set of brand new coffee tables. They had a lovely shape but were just very brown so I painted the bases in ASCP Pure White. I popped a photo on instagram and facebook and they sold very quickly much to a couple of people's disappointment who missed out. I love how you can see the detail now it's white.
So that's a few white painted furniture pieces from me. This week I'm painting a vintage bedroom suite in a softer white - a custom mix, as Pure white would be too stark for what my client is looking for.
Have a good day, enjoy the Melbourne Cup is you are celebrating. My dad sent me his tips but I'm not sure if I'll even make a bet. School pickup and all that....
and I have a date with my paint and paintbrush anyway...
