French style drawers

I hope you are surviving this heat wave if you are local. We don't have aircon but our old house is fairly good at keeping cool, although we escaped in the heat of the day to the movies yesterday afternoon . We saw Hidden Numbers which we all enjoyed. I especially loved it and feel grateful for the women who went before me into engineering. Paving the way.  Even so in the late 1980s there were only a few females in the engineering faculty and even less females working as engineers in the Airforce.  Such a male dominated field when it really doesn't need to be. 

Anyway back to my present life to share my painted furniture - a long way from avionics :)

I recently painted these little drawers and they are still available for sale. These are painted in ASCP Old Ochre which is a lovely french style neutral. I have added white trim and then top coated and added patina with clear and dark wax. Original handles which are just lovely. 

Available: lovely dovetailed timber drawers: perfect for a smallish space in your bedroom or lounge room, these are a lovely colour: ASCP Old Ochre, white trim and antiquing wax.

Enjoy your weekend
