I'm not telling you anything new here - buying matchpots as an economic way to paint smaller items. I wouldn't normally buy Farrow and Ball paint as it is a tad pricey but I was lucky to acquire a lot of their matchpots a while back at a knockout price.
So just how far does a matchpot go? This little pine cupboard is about 20" tall and 14" wide. I painted two coats back and front and used just over half the matchpot. Just the drawers were painted in a contrasting cream.
After painting I rubbed back some areas for a distressed look.
And added some floral motifs at the top and on the drawer knobs.
A few knick-knacks strategically placed for effect. It's now gone to my unit in Lechlade, you might have spotted it there a couple of posts ago.
(A sunny day for painting outside is also useful!)
