Beautiful “Navy” Fusion Mineral Paint Midnight Blue Drawers

I have been using Fusion Mineral Paint as well as chalk paints lately. I love the Midnight Blue for a classic navy. I thought I’d show you a few pieces I have done recently in it. Including a chest of drawers that are still for sale if you are interested :)

Ben who is in his early 20s contacted me last week looking for some furniture. He originally was looking at IKEA but his mum said “go to Lilyfield Life instead”. He looked through my portfolio and fell in love with all the bow front drawers I did last year. I had one remaining unpainted chest so he asked for them in my deep navy blue with gold handles. Didn’t they turn out beautifully?

Ben says they look amazing and “wow what a piece, something I will be able to hand down to family in the future”. Old furniture is the best and it’s so good to see young people buying “proper” furniture that’s built to last many lifetimes.

I also have these tall queen anne drawers for sale. All gorgeous now in FMP Midnight Blue with a pale putty grey interior, sealed with a lovely matte sealer and new gold cup handles. 5 dovetailed drawers offering fantastic storage and looking very stately now.

Thought you might to see the before photos. Solid and well built but the varnish was so degraded. I’d say perished but I might get a scathing email from snarky Kate again ;)




Here are some other navy pieces from last year. I just love it.

Hope you do also
