Fusion Mineral Paint Chiffonier


After about 2 years collecting dust in the garage I finally got around to painting this chiffonier,  I don't know why it took me so long to get cracking with it as it is an absolutely lovely piece of furniture, the detail is very appealing with the lovely barley twist side bars and the stunning ornate carving on the top.
 


 
Once I got it into my workshop, cleaned it up and prepped it, I knew straight away I wanted to use a very dark grey/charcoal colour.  Having previously used Fusion Mineral Paint "Coal Black" I thought I would try "Ash" - this is more charcoal and not absolutely pitch black, to offset the dark exterior I painted the inside with Cathedral Taupe, which was a great combination.

The secret drawer had a lovely wooden edge with a really gorgeous patina so I chose not to paint it, which worked really well.




Amazingly this piece sold within 20 mins! - Definitely one of my favourite projects to date.
 Think I'll go and check out what else is in the garage!
