Queen Anne Dressing Table and Stool Refurb

I'm always looking out for these dressing tables and this is one of the best I've seen.  Painted with Autentico Roman White and Foggy Venice and finished with clear wax.  Simple but really effective shabby chic dressing table.

Here's a couple of looks at her majesty as was before.  Queen Anne repro was very popular in the 1950s and this piece would have been a pretty expensive purchase.  I bet the rest of the set was amazing too.

A walnut veneer with a few bumps and scratches - some fading from being near a window.

Lovely mirror set in perfect condition.

I went for the light shabby chic look - not too much distressing, just some wear around the edges to bring out the flow.

The handles have been replaced with silver crystal pulls.

Love the shape of the front with all those curves.

The glass top is virtually free of any marks.

Sitting pretty in the window.
