Vintage chest of drawers

Good morning once again, from a slightly damp Sydney. Actually it's less wet than I expected. Which is great news as I have lots of furniture pickups and deliveries today and I hate moving furniture in the rain, especially if it's already painted.

I'm slowly finishing up everything before we head off. I am almost finished a large bedroom dresser that lovely customers have brought up from Canberra for me to paint. The base is all finished, today I just need to wax the large mirror frame. For this piece I painted a grey primer then several coats of off white, then a brighter white wash then finished with white wax. The finish is really lovely and subtlety complex in real life. 


The dresser was Sean's parents and is a sentimental piece and is now freshly painted for their daughter's bedroom. Nice to see old pieces given a new life and used for the next generation.


I have a little vintage chest of drawers for sale. The timber top is lovely so I have cleaned it up and sealed it. The base is painted off white with a white wax finish.

Available: old solid timber dressing table. Painted in an off white chalk paint and treated with white wax to create a subtle washed look. I really love the finish on this. Stunning original hardware. Timber top has been cleaned and finished with wax for a lovely sheen. Dovetail drawers all slide smoothly and are unpainted inside but very clean. 
107w x 47d x 95h (bench top is 78cm h) 
$385
Pickup Lilyfield or delivery may be possible



please let me know if you are interested. 
regards Fiona
