Bedroom furniture in pale grey chalk paint

This beautiful bedroom set came from the Consul General to Finland. It is just so beautifully made and despite being quite old was in pretty good condition. Initially I was thinking of selling it as is but the long low drawers had a few nicks along the trim above the drawers and the tall set had quite a bad mark on the top. The rest were just perfect so it was a shame. 


I ended up painting them the same in a pale grey chalk paint with clear wax. The drawer interiors are a pale sea foam green. I love that combination.

A lovely couple who aren’t on Facebook bought this set. Their friend commented sold for them. When I went to deliver the piece I realized I knew the friend (who was there to help unload) so it was all a very nice transaction.

I really buffed these for a nice shine. I’m just so thrilled the set stayed together. 

I’m so tired tonight, we had 6 boys here for a sleep over last night for Jonty’s birthday. Such nice kids and so funny. And wow big groups of boys eat so much. 

So we are off to bed early (10:30pm which is quite early for me anyway). 

Have a good weekend
