Well needs must and when I get an idea I'm off. The furniture was going to be white!
Now I'm all for speed and if there's a shortcut to something I'll find it, so out comes the sugar soap and hot water. I washed the furniture with a strong solution of this and apart from sanding the table top a little that was my preparation.
I was off! The dresser was first. It took quite a lot of paint but it was worth it. When the painting was finished I picked out details with gilt patina crayons by Liberon and sanded off a few bits.
After a few days the darkness was gone and this is how it looks now in the late afternoon sun.
