Tastes change. This dark pine colour was big in Camden in the 80s but it just did not look right any more. So here it is painted in Paris grey with just one coat of wax; it needs a rub down and a final thinner coat of wax. I've spray painted the brass handles too. The colour is less blue green than it looks in the photo. The vintage / antique shop in Winchcombe I've mentioned before has not sold the old box which inspired me and just look what they've done with the French chest of drawers. It's  been stripped of its mahogany veneer back to the oak carcass and then bleached. We actually have such a piece in our garage but I baulk at ruining it. Luci says brown furniture will make a comeback.
