ASCP Paloma on bow fronted bedside drawers

I've blogged about ASCP Paloma before - I think it's colour that deserves more publicity. It's a beautiful muted grey lilac. It is really good for a girl's room as it isn't sickly girly and will suit a range of ages - you won't have to keep updating your daughter's bedroom furniture.

These gorgeous vintage drawers have sat in my studio for about 5 months - time seems to have raced away and because they are just a single item and not a matching bedside table pair, I kept prioritizing other pieces to paint. Over Easter I decided to tackle them and I love how they turned out. The top of the piece was quite scratched and I had spilled some metho on them that created a water mark that would just seep through any paint, so I fully sanded the top back to raw timber and sealed with Zinsser BIN. I then painted two coats of ASCP Paloma and sealed with wax.

I love all these muted colours together. The drawers look gorgeous next to my tufted chair but I can also imagine them next to a white bed with lots of frilly white linen. 

Have you used ASCP Paloma lately?
