Cosmic Silver Painted Bedside Cabinets

These little bedside cabinets are so precious!


I've refurbed a very similar set before - they're typical 1950s design and are wonderful solid pieces with cabriole legs, a single draw and the best feature - drop down table fronts with shelving inside.


I used a different colour scheme and finish inside with these one, you can see the other refurb story here


I got these for a customer who had bought a silver chest of drawers (story here)
They've been painted in the same colours - all over in Autentico's 'Foggy Venice' chalk paint and inside with Antique Turquoise.


After a few coats and smooth finish, a few coats of silver wax has been added.


These cabinets are slightly different to the previous refurb as they have a hard, wipe clean surface inside.  They're such a great design, if you pull the front of the cabinet down you have a place to put your morning cuppa...


The handles have been changed to sparkly crystal - these reflect the light and throw tiny rainbows around the room when the sun shines - which it continues to do... :-)
