However, this weekend I bit the bullet and got out the trusty Farrow & Ball paint and got painting. This time I used their 'Light Blue' as I used this on the cornicing in the bedroom where it lives.
I must say I am really pleased with the result; it is such a transformation and looks so much better than the previously gingery varnished wood. What do you think?
I have only lightly distressed the paintwork and after waxing applied some gold to highlight the detail.
I think the colour co-ordinates well with the marble top too.
I always make sure I paint the inside the same colour as I hate to see painted furniture where they haven't bothered to do this.
I have also done a makeover on a couple of stools. They were covered in old green carpet so I renewed the webbing and covered them in a pretty fabric with hydrangeas on it.
I have sold one stool but decided to keep the other and it goes so well with the dressing table!
