Earlier this week I picked up a fantastic vintage cupboard. Not something I would make great profit on but a piece I loved all the same and that I knew my customers would love. I took a few quick snaps when I finished painting it (heavily distressed and very rustically painted in ASCP French Linen) and just before heading out the door to my son's AFL training, but had planned to take better photos again as I knew the photos didn't do it justice.
As you can see I've just plonked it down on top of the console that needs painting and behind the chair that needs upholstering - not a great photo.
My oh it's such a great cupboard.
Solid Oak and those pigeon holes inside!
I said to Phil I think it's a piece that won't sell off the internet and especially using those photos but rather someone will see it when they come to the house and they'll fall in love with it.
...and that's exactly what happened yesterday :)
Renee came for a furniture paining lesson and took it home with her as well.
I also sold my armoire that's been sitting in the corner of my lounge room. Just when i got it all looking exactly how I wanted and when I've 99% decided that I just may keep this piece.
Oh well that is the life of a furniture painter.
I'll just have to find something else for this spot.
Vintage treasure hunting is such a good sport, don't you think?
