This is another old chair that I brightened up with a lick of paint.
The chair was prepped the same as my previous post on painting a chair
However, I used different paint. I had some Farrow & Ball French Grey paint left over from when I painted my kitchen cabinets. I wanted the colour to be a bit paler so mixed it with some white paint.
I think it turned out lovely! what do you think?
In fact I completely lost the run of myself and painted an old Jewellery box with the same paint. It badly needed a bit of TLC.
This is the jewellery box, tired and scuffed.
I also added some gold around the grooves and ridges. with gold gilding wax. I just applied the wax with my finger to give it a gilt edged look.
