I have a super power
Kenny used to call it "mall-dar"
like radar for malls.
Wherever we traveled, I could find a mall
(much to Kenny, Mack, and Keegan's dismay)
It seems my super power also applies to French furniture
(oh happy day!)
Somehow, I can always sniff it out...
A glimpse of a dresser, part of a chair
whatever...if it's French, I WILL find it
For example, my friend Tracey and I were driving down the road
last week...I saw a pick-up full of furniture
Even at 50mph, I KNEW it was French furniture
(I know, amazing, right? Someone call Ripley's!)
We turned around, and sure enough
THIS was in the truck, upside down
with no drawers in it
along with this beauty
I had to refrain from jumping up and down like an idiot
I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with these gorgeous pieces
so I just started painting, figuring it would work itself out
I knew I wanted a greyish beige (more grey than beige)
so mixed up a variety of colors and ended up w a lovely mid-tone warm grey
It's sort of perfect, don't you think?
What to highlight with?
As luck would have it, my prize package from
showed up the next morning...Fate, I tell you...it was FATE!
I highlighted the top and some details with a gorgeous pearly white
and then accented that with gilding...
it turned out fabulous!
A little feminine, a little masculine...a lot gorgeous!
But enough yapping...see for yourselves!
and don't forget about the nightstand!
You can find these pieces, and many others, in our ETSY SHOP
