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... :-)

Up-cycled Bedside Cabinets

Everyone is saying up-cycled, I prefer refurbished... Anyway - here's a really nice couple of bedside cabinets I put in the shop today - starting with the reveal, standing side by side, shoulder to shoulder :-)

And here's the before...

These are 1950s and have got some really nice features.

Made by Wrighton, nice and sturdy.

The best feature inside - pull the front down and that's where you have you leisurely cup of tea and toast as you read your papers or hot chocolate and bedtime novel.

I painted them with Autentico's Roman White and Foggy Venice outside and Antique Rose inside.  Clear wax to finish and seal.  The mats have been replaced with PVC fabric.  Oh, I'm in the mood for springtime in Paris!

The insides of the drawers are painted pink too with a bit of silver bling across the top.

Lovely crystal pulls to catch the light.

They look really smart!  Definitely one of my favourites :-)
