Tallboy Transformation

I was given this chest of drawers a few weeks ago, it was in need of some TLC, new handles and some colour!  Its a great solid piece of furniture, it has a beautiful curved front which I love, but I needed to choose new handles carefully because of the curve.
I decided to go with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Provence and plenty of dark wax, I also did some arty farty paint splashes to give it an aged worn feel.

 I really love these handles, they are new but look like old ones, they are antique bass which just picks out the brass on the key holes on each drawer, I'm a sucker for detail so they are perfect for me.
I don't often say this - but the finished piece looks better in real life than it does in the photos, it's probably because my photography is not up to scratch, but all in all this could not have turned out better, I'm very pleased with the finished result.
You may well see this colour again very soon.
Bye for now
