A beautiful French commode in ASCP Graphite

Good morning! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I spent a lot of time re-potting my orchids. They were my Grandad's and I treasure them. I have loads of fronds this year so I'm even more motivated to take care of them :)  It really does your soul good to garden doesn't it - getting your hands dirty and taking care of a living things. Saying that my hands are always dirty with paint but nice to feel the soil between your fingers.

I also had a chance to rephotograph a beautiful old french commode that I have for sale at the moment. I love this piece. Such a beautiful shape. I have painted this piece in ASCP Graphite with a waxed finish.

 A stunning old commode from France. A statement piece for any room: Solid timber and easy sliding dovetailed drawers. Painted in ASCP Graphite with a waxed finish. Beautifully silky smooth to touch, minimal brush marks as always. A piece to treasure: I think it would be amazing in an entrance way or bedroom: even as a very large bedside table; imagine it between two single beds.

How beautiful is the shape of this one. 


I am also hoping to finish a French cupboard today. I'm just waiting on a new piece of marble for the top. A bit of an extravagance but it will make this piece amazing.

  2. Hi hon,
    Love anything topped off with a tasty bit of marble.
    Remember my desk/dressing table with the troublesome top? I'm going to look out for a bit of marble to solve it. Your last solution got rid of the bleed-through problem but as you rightly said, doesn't have the same appeal as your usual soft waxed finishes.

    Please let me see the French cupboard with the marble top as soon as ... there MUST be a place for it here!
