Walnut Ombre Tallboy
When we got our hands on this tallboy its was covered in a thick orange varnish, you could barley make out the grain beneath it. It Was a long but delightful process fine sanding the varnish off to reveal the beautiful walnut grain underneath.
I chose to paint it with an Ombre, using only upward brush stroke, I have bended 4 colours in a gradual fade. The contrast of the rich walnut and the light blue reminds me of a coastline from above.
It’s a very special piece and hugely calming to have in a bedroom. Inside there are the original shelving labels from when it was produced, around the 1920’s. There is also a pull out clothes hanger for shirts and suits or short dresses. The inside has been painted in a warm white eggshell.
