|The Inspiration – a vintage cardigan|
|Shabby but not Chic|
I am not a huge fan of painted furniture as it usually needs to be re-done and I hate to give myself extra work but sometimes a piece just works better in this case a chest of drawers with a large fixed mirror. For inspiration, I took a vintage cardigan and a dusting powder box that had the right combination of colour for the room. Deep vanilla cream for the wall and there was some walnut coloured wood furniture and to compliment a burnt orange paint for the chest. The handles were an odd size and I did not want to drill any extra holes so I repainted the worn handles in a dark grey and filled some holes in where some decorative handles had been.
