It was painted in enamel and I prefer to use acrylic, so ended up using a mat white enamel but it didn't do exactly what I wanted but I'm still really happy with it anyway.
Originally the draws were painted black, this created the problem of when I rubbed it back and shabbied it up it would have brought the black through. So I stripped all the black off and started again with an enamel primer before the top coat.
Lacindas humecottage crystal door handles look fantastic and tie in nice with the Queen Anne legs and pink girly draw liners.
This one is for sale at $120
Then my biggest challenge yet 6 ornate French Chateau style chairs.

I finished off the pine dresser today! After locating some new latches for the doors and draw liners that I have also installed in the bottom shelves I took some pics this afternoon and I'm happy with it.
I ended up giving it three coats of paint in total which included two coats of flat white and one in a home made cream colour that I made up. I distressed it and rubbed it all back giving some age look then finally a coat of beeees wax.
Lastly I fitted some draw liners and placed them on the shelves as well as in the draws, then scented with Rose Water.
What do you think? We want to sell it as we have way too many of them so if you or if you know anyone that is after one let us know. I also can send high res pics to anyone interested.
If your interested it is for sale at $120.
Next piece is already started, its a small chest of draws fitted with slim draws that I plan to fit crystal or porcelain handles to.
