I primed it and couldn't have asked for a better workshop, yes, that is a glass of chablis that you can see on the side, it helps when working in this climate!
Then a couple of coats of 'peinture a l'ancienne'
It's really chic, now I have to make it shabby. I've had one attempt but not too happy with it, picture not shown ;). What do you think, should I leave it like it is or distress it?
