French bombe style bedside tables

Good morning, thanks for the emails and comments. I really appreciate being in touch with you and I’m glad to be back blogging again. Ha ha I’d better not jinx myself 😊

Yesterday I finished and sold these gorgeous French bombe style bedside tables. I don’t usually buy previously painted furniture as I don’t like dealing with other people’s paint work. These are so lovely  and practical that I decided that it was worth the extra effort and hassle. 

I gave them a very good sand to get rid of any paint drips and other imperfections and then a really good clean. I then painted them with Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain. 2-3 coats for full opaque coverage. I then sanded them smooth and gave them a waxed finish...and screwed back on the hardware, styled them, photographed them, listed them and sold them straight away. It always makes me happy when that happens. 

The drawer interiors are a pale taupe. Great storage in these pretty bedside tables.

I also used FMP Champlain on another piece recently; these vintage bow front drawers. The drawer interiors were painted a lovely bluish grey. So elegant.

It’s such a lovely off white without too much yellow. 

I’ve got some fantastic pieces at the moment; loads and loads of drawers coming up so make sure you’re on my FB or IG pages as I always list their first or drop me a line and I can notify you when I’m about to list them.

Cheers Fiona xx
