French style buffet painted in taupe

Gosh we are zooming towards Christmas already. I have that phrase in my head "stop the world I want to get off" as I try to get all my painted pieces ready and custom furniture finished before I stop for the break.  

 This may be one of my favourite projects ever: such a beautiful shape and the colour I mixed for it turned out nicely. It's a really beautiful taupe.

To paint it I removed all the glass and mirrors so had to reinsert it all at the end. I have to say that my heart was in my mouth the whole time that I was reinstalling those big mirrors at the back.

Someone on facebook asked if I had sprayed this piece due to the lack of brush marks. All my pieces are hand painted by brush. I just avoid obvious brush marks unless I'm trying to create texture.

I love the details and hardware.

It has already sold.
Have a great day
