Little French style Armoire/Cabinet

hi everyone, it seems that the weekend just flew with various home projects nearly completed and a movie event yesterday with Phil's work. Shame it's not a long weekend every weekend but i'm sure that as soon as I've had a coffee I'll be raring to go. This morning i'm off to do a furniture consult where I'll be advising on furniture placement and also which pieces to paint, what finishes and colours my client should choose. I'm looking forward to it.

I did finish this lovely piece on Saturday afternoon. This was a little cocktail cabinet that I think would work perfectly as a little armoire, hall cupboard, linen press, tv cabinet. So many uses.

It's painted in a beautiful Porter's Paint chalk emulsion - taupe with a slight green undertone and the details are painted in ASCP Old White. I also slightly distressed and used dark wax to age the piece ever so gently. I adore the original Bakelite handles - reminiscent of feathers.

Currently there is no shelf in the cabinet but if the purchaser wants I can easily add one. The inside has been painted a pale grey. Solid timber and beautifully made.

For sale $595
Dimensions are 75cm w x 45cm d x 115cm h
If you are interested in purchasing it please call me on 0405766445

This is a piece that I thought would sell very quickly but I'm okay if it sits in my lounge room for a while as I think it's lovely. Perfect to stack some quilts in.

I'd best get going and grab a coffee and do the school run.

have a great day

  1. It does look very nice! I have never seen the feather handles before.

    1. thanks Rose, I really loved this piece and if it wasnt the thought that I can always find another one to paint I'm not sure I would have let it go.
