Vintage oak bookcase cabinet and I found another one

Last week I bought and painted a little old English oak cabinet. The lead light panels in it were all broken so I pulled them out and inserted wire into the doors. I painted it all a warm pale grey chalk paint with a white (satin enamel) interior. It sold on the weekend and was picked up straight away.

I could not believe it when yesterday I bought the same piece again but this time with perfect leadlight. The buyer who was Next in line on the last sale was thrilled to snap it up and have it custom painted. She’s deciding colours and will let me know. 


Here’s the one with the broken leadlughts. Same piece!


I also bought a matching little drinks cabinet that will paint up beautifully also.  All lovely old pieces made in England.


Hope you are having a good week

  1. LOVE the new look for it. Was way too dark before. Now you notice the detail better.
