Paint a chair! Paint a Jewellery box!

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.

Definitely brighter!
