more French Provincial bedside tables

When I bought the french provincial bedside tables I painted in white recently I picked up a second pair from the same seller, they are similar but with 4 drawers. These were very grubby and needed a lot of sanding and timber putty so I did all the prep and primed them white so I had a good starting base to paint. It's so good to start with a clean slate.

My initial plan with these was to paint them white but then when I was about to start painting I changed my mind and painted them in this lovely warm putty grey.

These are sold pending payment but if you are interested in them if sale falls though let me know.
48w x 40d x 77h cm
$500 the pair

I used some black wax to gently antique these and make the details pop. Below is them before I added the black wax, so much flatter and less interesting.

I also finished these very old drawers for Jo. They were her grandmother's and were really grubby and the paint was damaged so I gave them a very good sand and clean and then primed and painted in the same putty grey. I also did some repairs to the drawers - regluing and nailing. Jo picked them up this morning and was really happy with them. A nice sentimental piece.

These bedside tables below are also part of an old sentimental set. Pat and Spencer asked to paint their old bedroom suite that they re giving to their daughter., There's a dressing table and stool to match that I'm almost finished. All painted in ASCP Paris Grey and waxed. Nice to see these old pieces given a new life.
