French bedside chests

What are you most proud of? I love that the new paint finish shows the lovely detail on these chests - they look really romantic! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Preparation is the key when painting something dark a lighter colour; give the item a couple of coats of undercoat - it may seem a drag but you'll achieve a better quality finish

You Can Make This

Thank you but I sold them; we changed decor and the boudoir has gone but the lady who bought them loves them!
