Painted Antique French Bedside Table

Quite a transformation on this piece. As you can see from the before photo this antique French chevet bedside originally had a marble top. Whilst glueing it on, disaster struck, the whole piece fell over and the marble smashed.... lots of swearing later, I had to make a new wooden top for it. This episode then changed the whole look and feel of the piece. So its been painted in Vanille and Artichaut, inside and out, in a distressed two colour finish, its been finished off with the Polyvine matt finish varnish for protection. 

There were quite a number of repairs, new plinth sections, new drawer runners, new internal shelves, new feet. There was also some wood worm damage which I treated throughly and filled.

On the inside of the cupboard door though I kept some of the original wallpaper as a feature, I thought it was rather sweet..
