Painted furniture projects

Here is a little peek at what I've got in the works at the moment. Lots going on here but not a lot all finished yet.

Beautiful antique french bedside tables:
Painted in a soft grey chalk paint with white trim and dark wax to give them an authentic antique look. The right one is finished, the left one still needs the detail painted and the waxing to be completed. These will be for sale soon.



A pair of large Queen Anne bedsides paint in a lovely French taupe chalk paint. I added the timber moulding to the front to make these a little more pretty. I am still to decide how i will finish them. My initial plan was t paint a white trim around the drawer and door and to highlight the moulding in white also but I kind of like them as they are. These are a fantastic size and offer very good storage also. These have already been sold.



I'm still working on the beautiful console table with carved legs and serpentine sides. I have this in my bedroom at the moment and love it there. I can just imagine sitting down at this to work in front of the window. I still needs to the top be painted as there was a crack in the timber and I've filled it and sanded it but not painted it.



I am finally finishing this beautiful tall mirror.



I also have two fantastic hall tables and another pair of three drawer bedside tables with lovely carvings on the front to paint. 

Lots going on...one happy woman here.

How's it with you?

  6. You have an amazing eye for detail Fiona. Would love to try my hand at painting our dated wooden (honey oak coloured) kitchen cabinets a nice shade of white to brighten the space. However, with three children under 4, I can't see this happening any time soon. Do you paint kitchen cabinets at all? I'm looking into the cost to pay someone to do this and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
