Navy chalk painted buffet

Good morning! I was up early today as Sasha is off to music camp. I've baked some sourdough, made more dough for the next batch, emptied the dishwasher, sanded down a table by hand and now writing a blog post, coffee in hand. I'll probably crash at 10am and need a nap, ha ha.

My sourdough making skills are improving. We are really enjoying having home made bread and I love making it. So good to learn something new and hone your skill at it.

Yesterday I finished a lovely slimline buffet. It is such a great storage piece with 9 drawers and 2 cupboards. Great for a hallway also as not too deep. I have painted it in a lovely rich navy chalk paint and then sealed and waxed it. I have a few people interested in it but it's still available so please let me know if you are interested. Shipping available.

Pristine condition and painted in stunning navy chalk paint, sealed with a clear sealer and wax. 
Very gently distressed. Beautiful sheen. So much storage.

Today I am working on a lovely tall cupboard with pressed tin sides. The doors are needing repairs and I'm hoping my fix will work. Otherwise it will just have to be an open shelved cupboard. I think it will be lovely either way so it's all good.
