They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To…

These stunning handles are what I have just removed from a piece that I’m painting. (Don’t worry, they are most definitely going back on!)

When I go scouting for furniture, anything with this sort of hardware always catches my eye because you don’t often see anything like it on modern furniture. In fact, when you do, it’s most probably something that has been reclaimed from a bygone era, restored and is on sale for some extortionate amount of money somewhere like Liberty’s.

I LOVE Liberty’s but how many of us can afford a couple of grand for a chest of drawers?

While the weather has taken a downward turn and the furniture is in the shed at the bottom of the garden, the makeover is on a temporary hiatus. But I’ll post another update when it’s done.

In the meantime, it’s going to be this delicious colour – Mulberry – by Vintro Chalk Paint.

Mulberry

And I can tell you, it’s already looking fab!
