Old Chiffonier - perfect hall table or dining room

Vintage chiffonier from Lilyfield life painted in ASCP Paris grey

Yesterday was a busy day with people and furniture coming in and out and lots of waxing to finish off pieces. I finally finished the lovely old chiffonier I've been working on. I painted it in ASCP Paris Grey with Pure White highlights and distressed and antiqued.

Because this is such old timber I decided to use a shellac based primer to ensure that the tannins didn't bleed through all of my nice paint work.  I actually love how it looked even after one coat of primer.

I gave it two more coats of paint -ASCP Paris Grey and the with a small brush I highlighted the details with ASCP Pure White. Once it was all dry I then distressed the piece and waxed it with first clear wax then on the detailed areas I brush on some dark wax to age it.

It's quite a rustic old piece with a few dints showing a well loved life but I really think it's pretty and very practical. Great storage for a hall way or dining room, even the corner of a bedroom.
