English chest of drawers and homewares

I haven't been blogging much lately but I have been painting up a storm. Today I finished a lovely set of English pine drawers. While I hate the 1980's Australian pine that's all varnish and now turned orange, I love the old English pine  - so blonde and pretty but still needing paint :)

While I was painting these drawers I actually found an English penny wedged in the corner of a drawer. I would love to know more of the story or where these drawers came from. I didn't take a photo as I wasn't feeling very well and just decided to get stuck into the painting. I've had a sore throat for a few days and have been feeling a bit dizzy. In between resting I did some painting as I find it hard to relax for too long.

Lovely English pine drawers painted in a beautiful putty colour and waxed. Silky smooth. Drawers are dovetailed but obviously not on runners.
91w x 46d x 101h cm. 
And the stunning pineapple/artichoke ceramic table lamp and shade brand new $175

I also have some other home wares for sale - things that I would love in my own house.

45x45cm linen floral leaf cushions two patterns both with insert and zip close $45 each,
17x24cm vintage style planter $45 each ,
41 x 32cm pressed metal urn $75 ,
Faux Peonies pink or white $40 a bunch
French sofa not for sale (it's a keeper)

Actually I did order some of the cushions for our lounge room also as I love the blue and white.

Let me know if you see anything you would like

  1. Don't you wish old pieces could speak and tell us their stories! I think the painted dresser looks very nice.
