My latest projects!

I am thrilled to say that I have sold my very first piece of refurbished furniture: The large Dresser that I showed in a previous post! With the money I have added to my growing collection of paints and yesterday I went in search of more furniture.

I went to the second hand furniture shop, where I previously purchased the unit I painted for our bathroom, and this is what I found there:

Not sure how old this sideboard is but it is very solid and heavy! I love all the detailing think it will work well with the Annie Sloan Chalk paints and some distressing! Now all I have to decide what colour or colours to paint it!

Talking of colours I have just finished a corner unit in Duck Egg with dark wax. I am getting more confident using the dark wax now! Let me know what you think!
