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
Fiona

  8. However, the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. One powerful leader taught that to young potential leaders some two thousands years ago and it still stands true today. You will find the textual advice in Paul's letter to Timothy, who welcomed and received and embraced the teaching.
