Edward - A Dignified Bowfront Dresser

Edward when I found him.

In pretty good shape !!  A top I can save ...
This is Edward now.
He's neutral, sophisticated , smart, and good looking.  At home in any home.
My pictures are not up to par.  apologizes.
This smart fellow was redone with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey.  
Distressed. & finished with Fiddes Natural Wax.
The top was sanded smooth to highlight and bring out the gorgeous grain, then stained with a dark walnut.  Also, finished and buffed with Fiddes Wax.
All products a joy to work with.

He's a keeper.  I might just have to hold on to him!


  1. Wow! That is really beautiful! Where did you get your wax at? I have been wanting some but I don't think there is any local to purchase.

  2. i just love paris grey, too, and i'm a sucker for a bow-fronted anything! you have some great finds here!
