French Grey...

A friend sent us a photo of this chifferobe,
and asked if we were interested in purchasing

Clearly, the answer was a resounding YES!

This old girl was in fairly rough shape...
lots of dings, dents, a dirty interior
but all the important stuff was there
(like the hardware and the key!)

We selected French Grey Milk Paint
(a bluish, greenish grey...gorgeous!)

I always forget how much I love Milk Paint...
I tend to be lazy about mixing, etc
but I am always really glad I did afterwards!

I really love how this color changes based on the light...
it goes from a soft blue, to a pale grey, to a light duck egg

 Milk Paint chips and cracks naturally, 
giving an authentic aged patina that is really difficult to mimic with other products
(and isn't that hardware gorgeous?)

 We highlighted a few details with white and the effect is lovely,
 don't you think?

 Can't believe the key is still around!

More yummy details!

As always, the drawers and interior has been cleaned and re-stained

The armoire portion of this chifferobe features a metal rod for hanging clothing,
and behind the smaller mirrored door is a little cubby,
 perfect for storing whatever you'd like to put there!

This was a really fun project, and an unusual piece of furniture

You can find this in our Etsy Shop

Thanks for stopping by!
