French style bedroom set with lots of patina

Good morning, I feel like a can breathe a huge sigh of relief this morning. Both kids out of the door for a full day of school by 7:45am and I can do an uninterrupted full day of work for the first time in months. Hallelujah :)

I finished this chest of drawers yesterday and the matching bedsides the day before. I painted them with white chalk paint and added lots of wax to give them a healthy dose of patina. I love this look especially on pieces with lots of carved details.

The set actually had one missing handle so I replaced the handles on the drawers with a vintage set I had saved from another piece. I didn't sell the bedsides and the drawers together as a set but the same lady bought them all anyway. She doesn't mind that they have different handles.

I am embracing using waxes to create a lovely soft patina.

Here are the sweet bedside tables to match.
Do you like this look?
